In his artistic practice, the artist examines the relationships between ritual and discipline, contemporary biopolitics, science, and technologies. Intrigued by modern polysemy, informational intoxication, and desire for oblivion he reflects on how the mythological overlaps with technological, being inspired by the sacral concept of human mind incorporation into a global system. Artist works mainly with installation, graphics, and performative video.

Since 2012 has collaborated with the Museum of Contemporary Art GFZK (Leipzig, DE), Contemporary Art Museum S.M.A.K. (Ghent, BE), Museum de Domijnen (Sittard, NL), Mystetskyi Arsenal (Kyiv, UA), Calvert 22 Foundation (London, UK), Badischer Kunstverein (Karlsruhe, DE), Blaffer Art Museum (Houston, Texas, US) and other galleries. He took part in the 5th Biennale for Young Art (Moscow, RUS) and in 14th Baltic Triennial at CAC (Vilnius, LT).
