Rubinsteins performance, 1998) and others, Provorov focuses on the direct creative devices, having shocking impact on the audience, often realised in the context of other, more traditional artistic events. He is attracted to the traditions of the Russian avant-garde of the 1910s-20s, that the author takes into account more often than the contemporary artistic process, which he tries to argue with (A. Gore, NCCA, Russia). Provorov is the author of about thirty book-art productions, and of more than 200 graphic sheets. His audio productions were broadcast on the following radio stations: Rendezvous (Nizhny Novgorod), Ermatel (Novosibirsk), ORF (Vienna). In 1998 he received a grant for films and audio productions making (Kulturkontakt, Vienna). Sergei Provorov lives and works in Nizhny Novgorod (Russia).
