Vyacheslav Akhunov

Uzbekistan, 1948



The projects by Vyacheslav Akhunov are part of the same pursuit: the style of constructivist photomontage, supremacist abstraction, influxes of Islamic calligraphy, the modes of socialist realism, oriental mantras and miniatures from the Muslim east differentiate Akhunov’s work from the Russian conceptualists.


In these extraordinary works, everything seems to be fused together (as in a sort of kaleidoscopic collage) to deconstruct rhetorical formulas, the propaganda images of the Soviet regime. However, these works seem to be “archives” in which you keep one story and

a plurality of stories at the same time.
