Aljoscha

Biography

In his drawings, sculptures, and installations, Aljoscha addresses topics such as biology and the theory of life, as well as bioism, which serves as a utopian model for new forms of life or living beings, but also with the great philosophical and scientific questions about life itself. He says:»I regard art as one of the highest human activities. For me, it represents a philosophy, perhaps even a religion. In this sense, I try to create an aesthetic utopia.«

Aljoscha, born 1974 as Aleksey Alekseevich Potupin in Glukhov, Ukraine, was a guest student at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Konrad Klapheck from 2001 to 2002 and studied with Shirin Neshat at the Internationale Sommerakademie für Bildende Kunst Salzburg in 2006. In 2008 he received the 1st prize in sculpture at the XXXV. Premio Bancaja, Valencia, Spain and in 2009 the sculpture prize »Schlosspark 2009« in Cologne. In 2010, he realized the installation project »bioism uprooting populus«, which was sponsored by the Karin Abt-Straubinger Stiftung in Stuttgart. In November 2018, Aljosha represented the Ukraine in the »1914/1918 – Not Then, Not Now, Not Ever« at the German Bundestag, which commemorated the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. His works are represented in numerous private collections and museums, including the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in St. Petersburg, the Kupferstichkabinett Berlin, and the State Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki.
