Kirill Savchenkov
b. 1987 Moscow, Russia.

Kirill Savchenkov works with various media including performance, installation, video and photography. His artistic practice appeal to the relations between mediation, learning, education, communities and institutions. When innovative attitudes through ''self-improvement'', ''life-long learning'' contribute to the blurring of work and life, earning and learning, leisure and control. This changes the role of cognition in interactions between human and objects which transforms into relations between knowledge and data when mind is the battlefield.
