In his practice, Bogdan Ablozhnyy (b. 1994 Russia) references writings, drawings and sculpture as well as such specific genres as situation, black labour and unfinished novel, allowing for narrative and formal contradiction simultaneously encourage and impede identification.

Rather abrupt, unfinished or even barely readable at first glance they are being located in a narration, a life-long novel, yet unfinished and continuous that comes along with personal history, real and fictional events, characters, biographies and names – a certain look of the mind and the body and what attended and clothed and awakened and received it: other minds, other bodies. Who were they? Marina Tsvetaeva, of course, but also Alexander Ilyanen, Natalia S. Gontcharova, Olivier Messiaen, Y., E., L., H., A., A., A.

Adopted as one of the textual lines CAConrad’s book title ‘While Standing In Line For Death’ can be read as an Aufzeichnung, a notation or even witnessing, since writings are being reduced to lines, titles, fragments, names, dates, additions, reductions, copying out collections of quotes or drawings that ambivalently act here as another possible form of writing, but also, starting from the end – the death, since this style comes from a certain impossibility to write, where the speech starts from an end after which only fall, or, in a best scenario – a plato – is possible.

Bogdan Ablozhnyy lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
