Philipp Groubnov

I was born and raised in Minsk, Belarus (1995), however my birth certificate is issued on the paper with soviet symbology and so sometimes I tend to think that I was really born in the Soviet Union.

I am more of a sculptor than not. In my works I find combinations of my interest in science with elements of mundane poetry and my overall distractiveness. Usually I work in series where I explore a particular subject of interest. There is no one perfect way of how to approach a subject, no perfect media, in any work of art there is an opinion of the artist and every subject has almost endless amount of dimensions or connotations. That is why when I approach a topic I want to find many different entry points to penetrate the matter of the question.

I usually gravitate towards ambigious subjects that are hard to put into a strict definition likes of: idea of ‘nature’ in contrast with human, transformation of matter between living and non-living, fluidity of objects and subjects and the idea of consciousness. In this instance, how can one choose only a singular point of view?
