Evgeny Antufiev - Organic resistance: body and knife - crossing the border. The first UK solo exhibition by Russian born Antufiev, presents artefacts, ideas and stories collected from, or imagined by, local and mythological cultures from different parts of the world.

Inspired by the traces of shamanic practice in the Siberian region of Tuva, where he was raised, the artist slowly crafts his own mythologies through a semi-anthropological approach to exhibition making, mixed with a degree of kitsch aesthetic. He combines imagination with aspects of Russian and international cultures, personal stories, and a skilled appreciation for the effect on human culture of different materials such as stone, bone, wood, amber and bronze. The resulting worlds are suspended between nature and culture, legends and facts, and found and fictional objects.

The exhibition is organised in partnership with Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia (Italy), where the artist had a major survey of his work in 2013 – the first one in Italy. The Maramotti Collection has continued to follow the research of the artist by acquiring new works over the last few years, and this exhibition will be the first time the works will be shown in Europe outside the Collection.
