Alexander Skorobogatov

My studio is my sacrificial and torture cabinet.

What I do in one sentence: amuse my ego.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: you can’t refuse the call of art.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I would build a temple for the God of art.

Why I do what I do: I can’t do anything else.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): my friends.

I am afraid of angry woman and empty bottles.

I know that a piece is finished when it’s finished.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: ask me again, wenn I am about to die.
