Bohdan was born in the family of a preacher and sang in a church choir.
He graduated from Kyiv National University of Culture and Arts where he studied Graphic design.
The artist uses performative vocals as the main media. The object of his investigation is a voice which reveals in religious, psychoanalytical and metaphysical contexts.
His first works – photos, happenings, videos – seem to be independent from each other. Struggle with inner problems which are difficult to bring out, absence of practice and impossibility to look back transform into search for the initial point, the point that will turn into a voice.
The idea of his recent works is to release a voice as a way to self-liberation
Bogdan’s art can be divided into two parts: sensual performative work with sound and more flexible concert activity.
In his performative practice partially similar to interdisciplinary approach of the legend of American avant-garde, Meredith Monk, the voice becomes not just a part of body in space but a part of plastics of a place.
The music has no rhythm and other details that serve to ease the perception. This way a listener faces unprocessed primal sound. The lyrics are designed from accidental thoughts, word partnerships and phrases caught on the street which make the endless lists in notes in the phone and notebook.
The art and work with voice are neither manifestation nor struggle. It’s reconciliation with self and search for own position.
Bohdan Moroz lives and works in Kyiv.
