Acrylic on canvas, wood
Ten parts, each: 200 x 80 cm

A DIY, punk aesthetic runs through the work of Sergey Pakhomov, whether it be his outsiderish paintings, ranting microphone performances, or his notorious participation in underground cult films. Pakhomov utilises a lo-fi theatricality to present his own take on how to define the Russian tradition, defending a staunchly anti-commercial stance feeding on so-called vulgar, popular visual culture, and pointing to its embeddedness within a larger culture of the absurd.
