Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The painting was shown at the Médiathèque Boris Vian, Persan, France in 2020 and at the exhibition in Petrozavodsk, Russia in 2019.

From the statement: "...The human is a key piece of my work. The squared figure is as built
up out of blocks of indeterminate material, associated to some with Lego blocks, but not
really them because of lack of cylindrical bumps. These blocks are rather close to voxels
(3D pixels) known through the popular videogame Minecraft. This analogy has a double
sense: firstly, it is associated with recently acquired men's addiction to the virtual world;
secondary, it is involved with our intellectual vestigiality, becoming obvious in comparison
with artificial intellect (even if they can’t really be compared for the moment because of our
limited knowledge on this subject), which augments because of the wild digitalization."

Artist Profile

Born: 22

Hometown: St. Petersburg

Based in: St. Petersburg

Yod (1984-), an artist engaged in contemporary painting. His work captures aggregated images of modern citizens residing in a new environment: a fusion of digital reality, hyper-information, capitalist economy, liberal philosophy, and shows some attributes of digital art.

Raised in Leningrad and trained at the St. Petersburg School of Decorative Arts in a constructivist Russian painting style, inspired by contemporary art, Yod moved to France in 2007 graduating from the Poitiers Art School in 2010 with a degree in Emerging Practices to become a part of the French contemporary art scene, regularly exhibiting worldwide while simultaneously maintaining strong ties to the Russian cultural landscape.

Throughout the 2010s Yod presented paintings in Moscow Center of Modern Art exhibitions series “Rectitude”. The exhibition curated by Vladimir Potapov demonstrated the most relevant contemporary painting practices as part of the international art scene. Since 2016, Yod has been actively working on his most important project — “Me. Human."

Working under a pseudonym to maintain anonymity, images of the artist are incognito.
