Oleg Kornev

Visual Artist, Performer, Media Producer

Since the mid-1980's Oleg has been producing exhibitions-performances under the themes Totalitarian Romanticism and Mausoleum L, in which the present and recent past, similar to an antique heritage, become objects of archeological excavations, various cults and rituals...

Visuals are for me a process-art issue, a liquid substance which changes its quality over time, and I think of myself as a person who is monitoring an alchemical process.

Since 1985 Oleg has worked in the underground music scene in Moscow as a photographer, designer and promoter. Collarborating with electro and new wave groups: "Notchnoi Prospekt", "Alisa", "Kabinet","Doctor","Brigada S" and the underground scene promoter Vladimir Marochkin.

In 1986 Oleg produced the video-screening for V.Shumovs (Center), a rock opera based on A.Rimbaud poetry (feat. Borisov (Center, Notchnoi Prospekt), Mamonov (Zvuki Mu), Aguzarova (Bravo)).
