Anton Lapov (Ukraine) is awarded a three month residency at Delfina Foundation as part of their Collecting as Practice programme.
Anton is an artist, independent curator and museologist. His practice follows a multidisciplinary approach based on his interest in new media, creative coding, digital humanities and experimental museology. He is constantly in search of non-conventional forms of exhibitional representation and seeks to avoid the logic of instrumentalisation through the creation of procedural communicative situations. In addition to being involved in the sphere of artistic/curatorial production he also conducts research into the history of Ukrainian sound-art/electronic music and local artistic communities of Eastern Ukraine.
During his residency Anton will continue his research into the peculiarities of the functioning of the art system with a focus on the interrelations between archives of art institutions, private (luxury) collecting and the logic of art-market expertise. With the high rate of the digitisation of cultural-economical processes Anton is also invesitigating the possibility of developing an algorithmic toolbox for critical evaluation of contemporary cultural production.
