Aslan Gaisumov

1991, Grozny


Aslan Gaisumov (Grozny, 1991) lives and works in Grozny. He is developing an oeuvre that feeds on, but also transforms and transcends personal and collective memory. His works are poised between visual immediacy and social commentary, between the momentary and the monumental. They are mostly videos and installations incorporating found and purposely crafted objects, but sometimes also photographs and works on paper. He is currently completing his MFA at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, in Amsterdam. His work has been shown in events, museums and institutions such as the Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool (2018); the 1st Riga Biennale, Riga (2018); Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art-Garage Museum Of Contemporary Art, Moscow, (2017); Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; or Museum of Contemporary Art M HKA, Antwerp, among others
