Spanning sculpture, installations and works in public space, Anton Burdakov’s interests focus on connections between built environments and mental spaces. Combining diverse materials, and (mis)using approaches from architecture and design, his projects engage with themes of agency, alternative timelines and the possibility of change.
Born in Kiev, Burdakov grew up in the Ukraine and the UK. He studied neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London. Burdakov has exhibited internationally, presenting his first museum exhibition, Assembly, at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2015. Among other venues, his work has been shown at Palazzo Costantino in Palermo, Kunsthal 44 Moen in Denmark, Hauser and Wirth Somerset, NIROX Foundation in Johannesburg, MuseumsQuartier Wien, Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Eden Project UK and Roundhouse Theatre in London. He has given talks and workshops at many institutions, including BMW Guggenheim Lab Berlin and Architectural Association in London.
