Deep into Russia at the Regina Gallery - Oleg Kulik

09 October 2012
Metro have recently been involved in printing and mounting work for the Russian artist Oleg Kulik, in his first UK solo show.

Kulik is a photographer, sculptor and curator and is best known for his tribal performances as a ‘man-dog’ in which he explores the physical and emotional relationship between man and beast.  In this current exhibition he continues this theme and questions the common notion of what it means to be a human being probing the possibility of an alternative consciousness by taking on the persona of a cockerel, dog or bull. This regression into an animalistic state of mind allows Kulik to act out a human primitiveness commonly deemed unacceptable in today's society.  The resultant images are overtly sexual and politically charged and are intended to incite a strong intellectual and emotional response rather than be viewed as crudely provocative.

Kulik states: “The fundamental problem of the modern world is the conflict between the modern culture and nature. The human being has conquered nature which now only remains as trophies in zoological museums. Such are the consequences of the modern civilisation. I refuse to get to know the nature only through exhibits at zoological museums. I see my task in this project as to reveal the animalistic origins in every human being.”

The exhibition consists of over sixty black and white and C Type images images which Metro have printed and mounted.
