Art Basel Statements

Evgeny Antufiev

23 – 26 September, 2021

Art Basel Statements Booth N4, Messe Basel, CH

For this year’s Art Basel Statements, Emalin is pleased to exhibit a solo project by Evgeny Antufiev (b. 1986, Kyzyl, Russia).

Evgeny Antufiev was born in the Siberian Republic of Tuva, on the border with Mongolia. Rooted in the region’s spiritual practices, folklore and shamanism, his work explores the tension between the interactions we have with objects of art, objects of myth and objects of nostalgia. In his methodically organised worlds, the artist’s ongoing interest in the rise, demise and disappearance of civilisations unfolds in an immersive visual narrative.
