Can you help find video artist Rauf Khalilov from Azerbaijan?

AZERBAIJAN VIDEO ART

Today we received an email from one of our readers Luca Quattrocchi, a professor at the University of Siena in Italy asking us to help him locate Rauf Khalilov, a video artist from Azerbaijan who exhibited in the Venice Biennale in 2007.

Professor Quattrocchi  wrote:

I´m professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Siena, Italy, and one of my focus of interest is video art. Last year I curated an exhibition in Siena (“Erranti/Wanderers in contemporary video art”, with works of Pipilotti Rist, Kimsooja, Michelangelo Antonioni, Jordi Colomer, Shirin Neshat, Hans Op de Beeck, etc.), and I’m actually elaborating the next year exhibitions plan.

I was very touched by the work of  class=”hiddenSpellError” pre=”of “>Rauf Khalilov, that I saw on the 2007 Venice Biennale in the Azerbaijan Pavilion.

I was wondering if you could help me in reaching him, in order to find a way to collaborate.

We are only too happy to pitch in and help our subscribers so we have put up this post in the hope that a connection can be made. Please contact us at Art Radar or leave a comment below if you can help reach Rauf.

Our curiosity was roused by Luca Quattrocchi’s interest and if yours is too, find below links to two of his works on youtube.

Morning Starts at 0-01 is a haunting flickering video work featuring macabre and disturbing scenes of blood, suicide and worse. If you do not have a strong stomach, skip this one and watch the 6 minute Gravity Life instead. This curious sepia-toned piece backed by NASA soundtracks and music examines the powerful links between the forces of gravity and life.

  1. Dear colleagues, please let know Prof. Quattrocchi that he could feel free to contact Rauf khalilov through me, as he has authorized me to communicate that to you. I’ve sent a similar message to an e-mail address at the University of Siena as well.

    Best wishes,
