Leonid Sokov

Sculpture / Painting / Objects / Installations / Documents / Articles

Leonid Sokov’s name is associated with Sots Art, one of the most influential developments within Soviet nonconformist culture that mocked the regime’s efforts to control all forms of creative expression.
While some Sots artists examined societal attitudes and the hollow authority of Soviet power, Sokov addressed the monotony and deprivations of daily life. He applied strategies developed in Sots Art to a broader cultural context, juxtaposing traditional images of Russian culture with popular cultural myths of both communist Russia and capitalist America. Sokov’s multi-layered visual and verbal puns provide the viewer with a deeper insight into contemporary culture, politics, and life in general.
