ARTIST & PERFORMER
Eduard Zentšik (born 1975) is a contemporary Estonian genre-busting artist. In his creative work, he has managed to unite localness with globality, to shatter one’s hope for the result awaited from the artist, to put up a serious façade with ease whilst playing an ironical game with unknown rules and to deceive the spectator in such a way that nobody has noted that.
It is only at first perusal that his self-positioning as “Unknown Artist Zentšik» is an offer for the spectator to believe into the primacy of the art object over the art source. His ironical understatement of his role in the artistic process is not a give-away game, but an honest-to-goodness statement though a wily one.
The main E. Zentšik’s art object is “playing the artist”. The fancied artist deconstructs the philistine notion of
commitment to style: the selection of forms varies from the traditional pictorial art to the actionism. The Artist “zentšikizes” each style and trend. Eduard Zentšik presents to the viewer his own version of oscillation in the post-modernism era. With ease, he juggles with methods, habituates trends and adopts styles. Destruction, mixing and aligning of each guise – all this makes the Artist trans-universal.
The brand of “Unknown Artist Zentšik” is well known in his native region of the North-Eastern Estonia. The participant of a whole number of presentations, the facilitator of young artist exhibitions, populariser of the contemporary art process, a guest at any important event, a photographer, sculptor, an installation artist— all these make the Artist an easily recognizable figure in the local environment.
Painter, photographer, graphic artist, designer, author of installations, performances and musical improvisations. Organizer of youth exhibitions and projects. For over years of creativity had more than a hundred personal exhibitions and took part in numerous joint projects. Participant and winner of international Photographic and Art competitions. Numerous works are in private collections around the world. Member of the Estonian Association of Artists.
