Cosmoscow 2017 artist of the year - Ivan Gorshkov

For its 5th edition Cosmoscow has traditionally selected the artist of the year, who will present a specially commissioned large-scale installation for the new fair’s edition. In 2017 Cosmoscow has chosen Ivan Gorshkov, Voronezh-born artist, one of the most prominent representatives of the ‘Voronezh wave’ movement, and a co-founder of the Voronezh Center of Contemporary Art (a non-commercial, artist-led institution). Ivan Gorshkov presents an ambitious large scale installation titled “Creme Brulee” (2017, sculpture group, mixed media), commissioned specifically for Cosmoscow. Its general composition and separate objects reflect Gorshkov’s personal artistic approach, based on multi-layered images, on their unpredictably and impetuously changeable nature.
