Andrey Ustinov is the next participant of the Goethe@WRO residency program.
According to his manifesto about Secondary Art is art that goes unnoticed at first sight. More specifically, it’s a means of observing the process of its perceiving. To make the perception visible and/or hearable, he assembles constructions of images and sounds out of context-specific components. These constructions become technical extensions of the natural senses.
Artist Talk with the artist will take a place on 26 October 2016 at 5 PM in the Media Library of the WRO Art Center.
Andrey Ustinov’s (b. 1975, Luga, USSR) manifesto called Secondary Art is not inventive, it’s just a repetition of all the things artists do: performances, sculptures, short films, drawings, photographs, video installations and site-specific projects. His artworks only exist when they are seen by the viewers, who interact with them. His ironic attitude usually draws people’s attention, and the specific public places he chooses for his performances make them conspicuous and successful. In 2003 he graduated from Young Artists School at the ProArte Foundation in St. Petersburg and then moved to Germany. In 2008-2011 he has been a student of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
