Through the transference of digital images onto innumerable and diverse analogue materials, Andrey Bogush experiments and questions the craft of image production itself. Blending photographs taken from archives or online, Bogush prints and combines these images with CGI in order to form installations that end up highly sculptural. Often at a very large-scale his work has the capability to consume entire rooms with photograph-laden floor to ceiling vinyl curtains hung on the walls or laid on the floor. With a passion for diverse practices, he also experiments with video, performance, and digital weaving.
