Born 1994, Almaty
Student at the Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia, participant of the School of Artistic Gesture at the Artbat Fest 2016 in Almaty. Since 2015, his works have been included in a broad range of group exhibitions and projects in Almaty and Moscow.
Mussirepov creates videos, CGI graphics and interactive installations. His works explore local and national identities in the global context of the Internet era. Problematising his identity as a Kazakh, the artist consciously plays with representations and codes of Orientalism at the intersection of Internet culture, consumerism and national traditions. He investigates the practice of internet surfing as an extension of the idea of nomadism.
