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.

L.C. – What is art for you?

R.K. – I suppose that art is what comes before language as a kind of latent potential and as such it is by definition hard to grasp.

L.C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

R.K. – I pretty much appreciate the collaborations with International ArtExpo, which are handled in a supportive and professional manner.
