Regina Gallery is pleased to present Deep Into Russia, a solo show by Oleg Kulik. The exhibition is the a!ist's first solo show in the UK presenting the a!ist's practice since the 1990s. As pa! of the exhibition Kulik will re-enact one of his early performances 'Missionary' (1995) on the opening night.
Sculptor, photographer and curator, Oleg Kulik is best known for his tribal performances as a 'man-dog', which explore the physical and emotional relationships between man and beast, evoking the immemorial dualism between culture and nature. The enfant terrible of Russia's contemporary a! world gained international notoriety in the mid 1990s when his canine alter ego shocked audiences during performances in Zurich and Stockholm. Memorably, Kulik performed 'I Bite America and America Bites Me' (1997) for an exhibition in New York during which visitors were invited to enter a cage where the naked and unchained Kulik would interact with them in unpredictable and surprising ways.
