Biography/History

From a family of Russian emigres based in Paris, Nicolai Michoutouchkine set out travelling in the Near and Middle East, India and South East Asia in 1953. After a period of conscription and work in New Caledonia, Michoutouchkine settled in Port Vila in 1961 with Aloi Piloko, a Futuna Islander artist. They collected more than 6000 indigenous art objects from right across the South Pacific which they have exhibited, with their own works in Noumea, French Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Russia and Central Europe, Taiwan and Indonesia.
