Konstantin Guz is Russian born Amsterdam based artist. His current artistic practice is multidisciplinary.

It uses his solid understanding of photography as a base to experiment with different mediums such as video, sound and found objects. These various formats are also tied together through the concept of their installation in space, in both a practical and theoretical sense.
