Sergey Anufriev
Sergey Anufriev was born in the year 1964, in a family of artists and nonconformists of Moscow origin, in Odessa, which turned into the center of the modern art world of the southern Russia and the only town and home of unofficial culture in Ukraine. This atmosphere, which was genetically connected to oases of a “second culture” (Moscow, Leningrad, the Baltic States, the Crimea, Caucasus, Central Asia, and Siberia), gave rise to a new wave of modern art artists, who had to move to Moscow soon, because of the lack of audience. Sergey Anufriev moved to Moscow in the early 80’s and started his individual career in the circle of conceptualists.
In the year 1986 he organized and became the first chief of a legendary Moscow Club of Avant-gardists (CLAVA) – one of the first unions, which set “legalization” of the new artistic practices as their main goal.
In the year 1987 Anufriev took part at the project “Pop Mechanics” and together with Jury Leiderman from Odessa and a Moscovite Pavel Pepperstein founded the group “Inspection Medical Hermeneutics”. Now lives and works in Odessa, Kiev and Moscow.
