Andrei Roiter, AKINCI

Andrei Roiter (1960)

Woont in Amsterdam (NL) / New York (USA). Werkt in Amsterdam (NL) / New York (USA).

Andrei Roiter reflecteert op zijn geboorteland Rusland met de blik van een ‘wanderer’, of ‘artist-tourist’, zoals Viktor Masiano de essentie van zijn werk beschrijft. Zijn gelaagde werkwijze begint veelal met het bouwen van driedimensionale objecten, samengesteld uit alledaags materiaal, die hij ‘props’ noemt. Deze eigenaardige props vormen vaak de bron voor zijn schilderijen en stillevens. In het verheffen van alledaags materiaal tot poëtisch en betekenisvolle vorm voelt Roiter zich op een bepaalde manier sterk verbonden met de arte povera beweging.
'My Profession Is to Be Andrei Roiter' is een filmportret van een in Moskou geboren kunstenaar die in zijn eigen woorden "carrière heeft gemaakt door zijn eigen rusteloze bestaan tot onderwerp te maken van zijn visuele poëtica over de aard van het thuis, reizen, en zijn ".

Andrei Roiter studeerde aan het Instituut voor Architectuur in Moskou (1978-1980). Tijdens zijn studie verbond hij zich aan de AptArt beweging, waarbij clandestiene tentoonstellingen werden georganiseerd in de kamers en appartementen van kunstliefhebbers in Rusland. Mid-jaren ’80 werd zijn werk getoond in Rusland, Europa en de V.S., veelal in tentoonstellingen over Russische kunst. Begin jaren ’90 emigreerde hij naar het Westen, waarna hij ook onderdeel uitmaakte van tentoonstellingen in Duitsland, Zwitserland, Zweden en Japan. Inmiddels is zijn werk veelvuldig getoond in Nederland en daarbuiten, bij o.a. SCHUNCK*, Heerlen (2012), Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2013), MMOMA Moscow (2013), de Hermitage Amsterdam (2013), Galería Manuel Ojeda, Las Palmas (2015), De Hallen Haarlem (2016), Centre Pompidou, Parijs (2016), Jack Hanley Gallery, New York (2016) en meermaals bij AKINCI, Amsterdam.
