Ilya & Emilia Kabakov
Born in Dnjepropetrovsk (), lives in New York ().
Ilya Kabakov is without a doubt the best-known contemporary Russian artist. As a leading member of the Moscow Conceptualist movement in the 1970s he played an important role when the Soviet Union, after years of cultural isolation, attempted to reconnect with western art. Kabakov’s oeuvre centres on Man in relation to his surroundings, with all his longing and with dreams that help him escape from an often intrusive and complex reality. In his work Kabakov offers a meditation on utopia and real life, hiding and flight, using a visual language that transgresses boundaries between cultural and political differences.
