Timur Novikov

This catalogue accompanies Timur Novikov’s 2013 exhibition.

Contains fabric works, ink drawings and film stills from his extensive oeuvre.

A comprehensive exhibition of work by Russian artist Timur Novikov (1958–2002), co-curated by his step-daughter Masha Novikova-Savelyeva. Influential in Russia during the 1980s and 1990s, Novikov is best known for his distinct style of appliqué – whereby fabric motifs are sewn onto larger pieces of cloth.

Like many progressive artists of his generation in Russia before the break-up of the Soviet Union, Novikov worked underground, first with a collective known as the Fellowship of Experimental Fine Art (1981) and then in his own group, the New Artists. They were postmodern in many ways, combining fine art with music, costume design, cinema and performance, associated in particular with the band Kino for which Novikov was a designer.

Includes texts by both Timur Novikov and Jonathon Watkins, Ikon’s Director.
