Kirill Savchenkov

Kirill Savchenkov works with various media including mediated sculpture, installation, performance, and sound. His artistic practice raises the questions of agency, identity, and autocracy in the tech-social milieu. He was nominated to represent Russia in the national pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennial in 2022, but withdrew from the project in protest of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. Over the years his works were presented in institutions such as Transart Festival in Italy (2022), the 14th Baltic Triennial, in Lithuania (2021), Garage Museum of Contemporary Art inRussia (2021), V-A-C Zattere in Italy (2019) and the 12th Gwangju Biennale in South Korea (2018).
