“The photographic gaze, digital scanning and computing are mediums which allow me to move away from human mind and introspectiveness. The term “auto-poetic” is of particular interest to me.“
Andrey Bogush (b. 1987, Russia) is best known for his use of digital manipulation, CGI technology and videography. Taking photographs from his personal archive and from stock resources online, Bogush adds vibrant patterns, hazy swaths or scribbes of colour. Manifesting these works from computer screen to exhibition space, his work often results inhighly sculptural forms. Images are printed onto industrial vinyl curtains, and placed onto walls, floors and ceilings. Seeking out divergent forms of distributing material, the artist has moved into the realm of performance, drawing on research into theology and philosophy to create diaristic narratives. Andrey received his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Saint Petersburg State University in 2011, and studied at the Time and Space Arts program at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.
