Sergey Anufriev was вorn in 1964 in Odessa (Ukraine). After moving to Moscow, the artist lived in the famous squat in Furmannyy Pereulok. He is a representative of the Moscow conceptualism. In 1986, together with Sven Gundlach, Anufriev founded the Avant-Garde Club (KLAVA) and became its first chairman. With artists Yuri Leiderman and Pavel Pepperstein, he has created the collective called Inspection Medical Hermeneutics. “No one was going to shock or impress someone, to interest or to drag into something. All the objects were ‘things in themselves’ — quite closed and hermetical. Moreover, the exhibitions themselves were a kind of theoretical space in which various objects were located. One can characterize this as a continuation of the text. Nowadays, one can only dream or blissfully recall such a degree of distraction and soaring over the practice.” (P. Pepperstein about the Medhermeneutics in an interview for the project In sight. Episodes of the artistic life of 1986–1992, Ekaterina Cultural Foundation, 2015). Anufriev, co-authored with Pavel Pepperstein, has wrote the post-modern novel Mifogennaya lyubov kast (in two volumes, 1999, 2002). He is the creator and a participant of many art groups, including Cloud Commission, Tartu Society, Kosa, Russia. Anufriev participated in the first exhibition at the APTART Gallery (1982), as well as in many program group exhibitions covering the history of unofficial Soviet and contemporary Russian art, such as Fluchtpunkt Moskau. Werke der Sammlung Ludwig und Arbeiten für Aachen (Aachen, 1994), Kunst im Verborgenen. Nonkonformisten Russland 1957–1995. Sammlung des Staatlichen Zarizino-Museums, Moskau (Ludwigshafen, Kassel, 1995), IsKUNSTvo. Moscow — Berlin/Berlin — Moskau (1998) and others. Lives in Moscow and Odessa.
