For the next edition of Cosmoscow fair Osnova gallery will precent a solo show by young Russian, Helsinki based artist Andrey Bogush. The show will include photos from Proposals series and also a site specific installation made especially for the new edition on the fair.
Bogush’s work is sometimes called post-internet art, as Bogush uses Internet tools and digital methods to recreate things and surfaces that exist in the real world. The works give physical form to digital structures. Indeed, the material on which the images are printed and the physical space in which the viewer encounters them become an essential part of the art.
Andrey Bogush, born in 1987 in Saint Petersburg, Russia, lives in Helsinki, Finland. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Saint Petersburg State University (2011), and currently studies at Time and Space Arts program at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. Bogush’s artistic practice is diverse and include photography prints on giant vinyl curtains and carpets, digital weaving as well as videos and performances. His main subject is image-data production-rediststribution as sublime matter and as an abject.
