Victor&I.
I had started to write (kind of pugnacious, impressionistic task) a story about victor before victor was born; victor&I are truly close, yet we have never met. I know about victor, as much as he knows about himself: a celibate, a recluse, a a one-man multitude., a provincial boy, with a certain resemblance to a medicine-bottle, scared of being too nattily dressed, who spent childhood in a delirium of literary exaltations; too intransigent. Sentimental too, who can’t describe a kiss without blushing.
Like a dream bird that hatches the egg of experience. I follow victor, I take notes: black clothes, “free love”, a war, love between man and woman, friendship, and the care of the earth, serious entertainment, no moral aim, no solemnity, awe; late nights of smoky jazz, everyone is addressed as “sir.” Your Excellency, it was really a beautiful time. Quite. Or . . . yes. Obviously, there's no end to it.

Victor Yudaev was born in 1984, Moscow (URSS). With his installations / sculptures made of found or machined objects, Victor Yudaev constructs a kind of complex fictional literary narrative, where the carefully assembled elements take the place of words placed deliberately. He received a MFA at Lyon Art School in 2016. In 2017, he participated to the collective show "Rendez-Vous" as part of the 14th Lyon Biennale (cur. Emma Lavigne). More recently, he is nomimated for the 20th Ricard Foundation Award (cur. Neïl Beloufa).
