Phenomena of Nature or 99 Sceneries with a Tree is a series of performance pieces that the artist is performing in various places (among them – Cape Town, Berlin, Krasnoyarsk, Kiev, Bat Yam, Moscow, London, New York, Voronezh etc.) The artist explains, that his father, a painter, has a piece called 99 Sceneries With a Tree, and A. Kuzkin’s performances relate to this piece.
“To me it’s an image of a man who may have fallen from the sky. I’m planning to do 99 of such performances and then collect them all together <...>,” explains the artist himself. The performances do not follow the drawings of the artist’s father to the letter, it’s only an allusion to his work which rather duplicates the chronology of 99 Sceneries.
