Biography Oleg Kulik
Described as "one of the best-known artists living and working in Russia" and "the high priest of contemporary art", Oleg Kulik does performance art and installations, working out of a studio in a 200-year old wine factory.
In New York City in the 1900s in the Deitch Projects gallery, he spent two weeks crawling naked on all fours in a cage, wearing only a studded collar. The 1990s was also the time when his reputation began to grow in Russia, mostly for his own work and exhibitions organized with work of other artists as well that stirred outrage and indignation. His installation, Piglet, featured a pig being slaughtered, and he asserted that the pig was symbolic of the Russian government.
