Performance Art: The Testing Ground of Emotional Revitalization

At alk by contemporary Russian futurist artist, Andrey Bartenev.

Please join the Harriman Institute for a talk with artist Andrey Bartenev.

Andrey Bartenev is a contemporary Russian futurist artist whose works range from installations and sculptures to performance art. In his wild costumes and makeup, Bartenev embodies the artistic medium. Inspired by the mythology of art, the dreams of scientists and porno-anime, his various projects include an eight-legged dog for high-speed transportation;” a performance titled Black Caviar Road featuring a line of Russian black caviar cans rolling by on car tires; a sound installation titled “Say: I love you,” which uses a computer and two hundred speakers to project an echo of the words I love you, and more. Since 2014, he has been exhibiting BUBBLES OF HOPE, a performance art installation involving a procession of brightly clad artists frolicking through urban terrain. The piece was exhibited at the Dumbo Arts Festival in 2013 and appeared at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in 2014.
