Robert Kirov, абжубжу сите села, 2013
Interview: Robert Kirov
Robert Kirov was born in 1987 and raised in Switzerland. Lacking a connection to a single, specific culture, having traveled widely and lived in diverse places with his family while he was growing up, he freely collected visual experiences from various sources, driven by curiosity for things unfamiliar to him. He was attracted to a sense of strangeness, the kind that attaches itself to objects which have been separated from their frame of reference. His aim is to allow a hopeful reinterpretation or transformation.
