Born in Russia and based in Copenhagen, Georg Jagunov’s work shifts between digital collage, animation, projection mapping and installation art, and engages with immersive digital projections, which play with concealment and revelation and bring digital projection into contact with recognisably human spaces and scales. Jagunov’s favourite pastime as a child was to play Indians. As he fondly recalls “I would move through the forest alone. Alert and silent. Searching for traces. Traces of the unknown and of the unseen. In a way much of my art evolves from that same game, but at a different level.”
His sources of inspiration borrow from biology, history, science fiction, architecture and mythology. Jagunov works with sound designers, scientists and technicians to weave his environments and create immersive installations. Living and working in Copenhagen since 1998, Jagunov graduated from The Danish Royal Art Academy in 2011, and has also studied at the Brera Art Academy, Milan in 2007-08. More recently in Autumn 2014, he received a grant from Danish Art Council for a two-month residency in Tokyo, followed by an exhibition at 3331 Chiyoda Art Center.
