This exhibit represents an attempt to create a portrait of a person and to trace his life trajectory by studying his external shells. The title («Nothing Personal») is echoed in the markedly anonymous and depersonalized graphic portraits from behind of a hundred people that the artist encountered in the street; in the layouts of apartments that the artist reconverts into abstract geometry; and in the small marble plaques whose text reduces all the tribulations of individual human lives to a single word that dismisses this individuality: «lived.»

Together, all these aspects of Lungin’s work from drawings and light boxes to marble objects make up visual «white noise» or vacant abstract panels that are corroded by figures of pithy omissions in which concrete details and particularities start to come through once again upon closer examination and, along with them, the opportunity of filling in the blanks and reconstructing individual traits.

Born in Moscow in 1979. Lives between Moscow and Paris since 1992. Selected solo shows of recent years include Exodus (Moscow Museum of Modern Art, 2015), Rock, Paper... (Maquis Project, Izmir, Turkey, 2015), Infinitive (A.V. Shchusev State Architecture Museum, 2013), ex muros (Galerie L’Aléatoire, Paris, 2011-2012). Recipient of a fellowship from the Joseph Brodsky Memorial Fund (2015).
