Galuzin, Ivan


Since graduating from the National College of Art in Oslo in 2006, Ivan Galuzin’s multidisciplinary practice has generated a startling dialogue between his peculiar artistic interests, the history of art and the human body. The fragility of the human body is the subject of scrutiny in his painting, sculpture and video.
Ivan Galuzin lives and works in Oslo, Norway and Murmansk, Russian Federation. Selected exhibitions include Kristiansand Kunsthall (Upcoming 2017), Stavanger Art Museum (2016), Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art (2015), Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2015), Kunstnerforbundet (2015), UKS, Young Artists Society, Oslo (2014), Galleri Christian Torp (2012), The Armory Show New York (2012), and Moscow Museum of Modern Art (2010). As a curator he recently toured the exhibition Den røde armés tilbaketrekning / Возвращение Красной Армии / The Withdrawal of the Red Army, in collaboration with Northern Norway Art Museum (2015-2016).
