Victor Yudaev


He was born in 1984 in Moscow (USSR) and lives in France. He studied at KABK in the Hague (Netherlands) and at ENSBA in Lyon.

Victor Yudaev, as a sculptor who does theater design with his own sculptures, presents works while also presenting designs of characters, of their costumes, even of their silhouettes. He introduces micro-narratives that involve them, and meta-anecdotes on their development. In the form of volumes, photographs or writings, he collects scraps of what exists and recombines them in the semi-opaque bubble of his own lexicon. In his anachronistic world, each element makes us believe in its own life.
