Winterthur | Switzerland




  • Russian performance artist, sculptor, photographer and curator.
  • Born in 1961 in Kiev
  • Graduated from Kiev Art School 1979, lives and works in Moscow.
  • In 1990 he won a scholarship of the Pollock-Krasner Fund (New York).
  • In 1995 he won a grant of the Berlin Senate.
  • For one of his performances, Kulik created a symbolic set of parameters to define the environment, which he inhabited in the persona of a dog. He then devised a series of actions that unfold as a response. The artist described the dialogue within his practice as “a conscious falling out of the human horizon” which places him on hands and knees. His intention was to describe what he sees as a crisis of contemporary culture, a result of an overly refined cultural language, which creates barriers between individuals.
  • As curator of the Regina Gallery, Kulik became known for his unorthodox approaches such as putting paintings on wheels and hiring people to carry the artworks.
  • In 2009, Kulik curated the “Kandinsky Prize in London” at the Louise Blouin Foundation.
