Andrei Filippov

About works

Andrei Filippov was one of the leaders of new Russian conceptual art in the 1980s to 90s.

He has always worked with symbols. One of the most important was the double-headed eagle, representing unity and division between East and West.

'Balkan Baroque' is the artist's reflection on the Yugoslavian crisis. A spiralling of energy at this hotspot could engender a renaissance of civilisation or disintegrate into the next world war.
