Works in Moscow (RU), lives in Moscow (RU), born in Kyzyl, Tuva (RU).
Evgeny Antufiev was raised in the Siberian republic of Tuva. Inspired by the region’s lingering traces of shamanic practice, Antufiev crafts his own multilayered personal mythology, which subsumes various aspects of Russian and international cultures, personal struggles, and the effect of different materials (like stone, bone, wood, amber, and bronze), found or created objects. His methods mix mysticism with aesthetic kitsch. Antufiev was recognized in 2009 with a Kandinsky Prize for Young Artist, Project of the Year. He has since participated in exhibitions at the New Museum in New York, the Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and in Manifesta 11.
