Kirill Basalaev’s works are founded on “ruinization” – accepting the urban environment as a constantly self-destructing structure in which man must keep supporting life. Kirill Basalaev works with materials that constitute the city’s “skin” and “backbone” – in particular, concrete and plaster. He lives and works in Moscow.
