Alexander Brodsky
Russian, b. 1955
Follow

Whether working alone or with his former collaborative partner Ilya Utkin, Alexander Brodsky creates work that explores his interest in ideas of cultural history, time, memory, and urban environments. Much of Brodsky’s work is rooted in his training as an architect; through architectonic forms and the use of serialization, he is able to critically analyze his personal history, as well as the social history of his native Russia and the dissolution of Soviet power. Many of his sculptural installations feature repeated forms displayed together—acting as indices of memory and the passage of time—and include cities, bodies, and mass-produced or handmade objects that become the loci of cultural and psychological experience. “All my life I’ve been depicting cities,” says Brodsky, “I am enthralled by the existence of the city as an object, a cultural phenomenon.” He represented Russia at the 2006 Venice Biennale.
