About the Artist
Born in 1957, the son of Russian aristocrats, Brendan Kidulis survived the revolution simply because he was born too late to be a part of it. When he was 15 and three quarters, the whole family travelled to England in order to obtain free dental treatment. Unfortunately, his father had inadvertantly left his dentures behind, and Brendan was left holding a place in the waiting-room queue while his family went back to Russia for the missing piece of oral equipment. A couple of years or so later, the nurse decided to make things difficult by insisting that he leave the surgery premises. As there had been no sign of his family since the crisis of the false teeth, he could only assume that they were all dead. He was forced to start life again in a strange place, knowing only the English he had picked up from the waiting-room magazines. He opened a student account with Nat West, bought a subscription to National Geographic in order that his education might continue uninterrupted, and earned a living giving lego masterclasses in the corner of his room. At the same time, he began to experiment with recording, concentrating on muffled voices and the sound of tiny drills. in fact, these experiments continue, and you can experience the sound of politely applied pain by buying his latest CD.
