“At the core of Vladimir Logutov’s work is a simple game: transforming reality with the help of reality”, said Italian-born curator Antonio Gueusa.
With a background in drawing and painting, Vladimir Logutov has emerged as one of Russia’s premier and evocative video artists. His work combines natural footage with computer montage, conveying a meditative feel to his narration. Through his painting and drawing experience, he molds and reworks his videos by superimposing his own digital reflections.
Often characterized as a formalist, Logutov does not show the glamorous side of his subject matter, but mostly scenes of a process – prone to mistakes, inaccuracies, and even failure.
Born in 1980 in Samara (Russia) where he currently lives and works, Vladimir Logutov epitomizes the new generation of Russian artists through the themes he explores and the techniques he applies.
He has been a participant of important projects such as the Moscow Biennial of Contemporary Art (2007 and 2009), “MODUS R” (Art Basel Miami Beach, 2006), “Urban formalism” (Moscow Museum of Modern Art, 2007). His recent shows include “Unseen” Guangzhou Triennal; ”Saturnalia”, Sorokin Foundation, various locations; “Russia 21” at Pinchuk Art Center (Kiev, 2009); “Verticals”, Guelman Gallery (Moscow, 2009) and a solo exhibit at Regina Gallery (Moscow, 2009).
Vladimir Logutov was listed in the New Museum’s 2009 “Younger than Jesus” artist directory.
