Aslan Gaisumov

Young Chechen artist Aslan Gaisumov’s artworks are an opportunity to understand events of his personal life and the recent history of his people. By endowing his war memories with an art form the artist strives to critically and emotionally distance himself from the events of the last two decades and to find an intuitive and poetical language for their description. His works, which include both created and acquired objects, are a testimony of violence, a gaping void left by the war.
