Viktor Lukin (sv)

Victor  Lukin, born in 1955 (Nizhny Tagil, Russia). First art searches relate to op-art, with usage of inclusions of three-dimensional elements in a plane of a picture. First personal exhibition was held in 1985 (Nizhny Tagil). Interest in three-dimensional forms resulted in creating of painted metal reliefs. Traditions of Russian avant-garde artists, such as Kazimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Vladimir Tatlin, developed in these reliefs, which were exhibited many times, for example on such exhibitions as “National traditions and post-modernism” The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia (1993); “Abstraction in Russia – XX century” The Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2001); “Moscow abstraction – XX century” The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia (2002); “Around reliefs” The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia (2010); “Movement, shape, dance” The Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2011); “RELIEF IN RUSSIA of the 18th - early 21th.centuries” The Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2013) . Urge in quest for overall influence, as a result, led to modular installations based on small paper forms – “sculpture on a tongue” – sculpture of the smallest size located in unusual spaces. The usage of vast amounts of mini sculptures enables an artist to implicate objects little to do with cultural context in to the artistic fusion. Such objects are: the first nuclear bomb, a tank, a cannon and so on. The modules took part in numerous performances: “Art Camouflage” The central Museum of Armed Forces, Moscow, Russia (1996); “International Photobiennale’98” Moscow, Russia (1998); “Art Constitution” The Moscow Modern Art Museum, Moscow, Russia (2003); “Paper time” The National centre for contemporary arts, Moscow, Russia (2011).

Participated in the 3, 4, 5  Moscow biennale of contemporary art

The artist lives and works in Moscow, Russia. Has the rank of professor in national University of Design.

His works are in collections of The State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia; The Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia; The State Reserve-Museum “Tsaritsyno”, Moscow, Russia; Stavropol Regional Museum of Fine Arts, Stavropol, Russia.
