All drawings are always from people as models made at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna or elsewhere as a studio process. As a result, the source of these works is always the person or rather the body. At the same time, it is something abstract. What remains a mystery is whose portraits are these and what are these allusions.

I am interested in how the most familiar things can be imposed on us and what can be done with such invasiveness. The depiction of our body is still one of the most obsessive problems for the image.

The exhibition organizes a number of disassembled images, simulating their connection with each other, breaks the usual settings for interaction with the image.

Evgeny Dedov was born on the 6th December 1987 in Saint Petersburg (Russia). He graduated from the Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design. He is currently a student of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Dedov debuted his work with a solo exhibition at the Winzavod CCA ‘START’ platform of young art in Moscow. The artist’s work has been exhibited at Gallery Globus and at the Sergei Kuryokhin Centre for Contemporary Art in Saint Petersburg, and at Pechersky Gallery and GMG Gallery in Moscow. Dedov participated at the parallel program of Manifesta 10 and at the 4th Moscow Biennale.
