Kirill Savchenkov
The artist works with various media including mediated sculpture, installation, performance, and sound. His artistic practice raises the questions of hidden power and algorithmic governance in the tech-social milieu. His works highlight the affects produced by informational autocracy, neo-tsarism, hybrid politics, and modulating control. An artist has focused on poetical assemblages of failed, fallen, litter, and metabolized matter from the material, media, sonic and cultural fields.
