         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

This is a “Season’s Greetings card” dedicated to the limited-edition of a 3 silk scarves series I created for my "Lacer/actions Art Project”. The images of dirty, torn, and worn paper of the publicity posters on outdoor billboard have become silk scarves too! After to be already transferred on canvases, lithographic prints and aluminium my "Lacer/actions" artworks were transformed in silk textiles designs thanks to collaboration of Bruno Boggia Disegni (Como, Italy) who...

Here, Listen: Allora & Calzadilla: Intervals   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Allora & Calzadilla at Philadelphia Museum of Art December 12th - April 5th, 2015
Posted 12/12/14

“Intervals revels in the unknowable as essential to human experience. The exhibition bears witness to incomplete presences and resonant remainders. It finds in music a measure and a reckoning with these elusive forces and the abyss that lies between.” —Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla Gesamtkunstwerk, as German-defined, is a work that sums all arts—aural, visual, and performative—to total a perfect affective state. No other word seems capable of describing... [more]

Alternative Waters: a Personal View of Recent Macri Portraits by Kenneth Radu  
by
12/6/14 Posted 12/6/14

Part I People familiar with Adamo Macri’s portraits may well experience an aesthetic shock to see a picture of the artist with his eyes wide open. So many of his self-portraits depict the eyes averted, lowered, askance, or rarely looking directly at the viewer that I was taken aback by a recent picture, entitled Damo, 2013. There are a few other pictures in his Facebook oeuvre wherein the artist opens his eyes and stares out of the canvas, Self-Portrait, 2013, for example, but that is... [more]

Black Box and White Cube Merge but Audiences Are Slow to Follow   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

The current art market status of video art is comparable to that of photography in the early nineties. Back then photography wasn’t considered "real art" requiring hard-won skills going beyond simply pointing a lens and pressing a button. Moreover, prints could be reproduced endlessly rendering the work devoid of true artistic aura, a Benjaminesque nightmare. For video art too, controlling editions and authentication are the biggest obstacles to overcome, even more than trying to convince... [more]

MY NEW WORK ON A TABLE: COLLAGE MADE WITH 1.258 PIECES OF WASTE-PAPER FROM TORN OUTDOOR ADS  
by
11/30/14 Posted 11/30/14

This is my new work for “Lacer/actions” project. It’s a collage made on a table using 1.258 waste-paper pieces of torn and decomposed outdoor advertisings. I gathered every single paper pieces along the streets, after the old publicity posters were torn down from the billboards. I titled it : "The Symptomatology Of Instability (Waves On Waves)". It covers a wood table; sizes: cms 108 x 51. I think images speak better than words… So I created a videoclip I posted on Yo... [more]

Alchemists, Necromancers, and Magicians: An Alternative History of Illusion and the Moving Image   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 11/25/14

The moving image has a long-standing relationship with trickery: deceiving the eye, suspending disbelief, displaying the impossible. In fact, it's devilishly good at it. Everybody's heard about the audience who ran screaming from the oncoming train at the premiere of the Lumiere Brothers’ L'Arrivée d'un train... (1895). I recently read a suggestion that they ran partly to avoid being crushed by a steam train and partly because they knew doing so offered them bit parts in an anecdote... [more]

To be talked about—positively or negatively, it hardly matters—is the principle aim of every art prize with an exhibition attached to it. Of course, reward or encouragement are the motivational labels attached to them but PR is the true driving force. For a good many years the Turner Prize was the prime example of a "successful" art prize exhibition. All of Britain would be talking about the nominees and the winners, down to the proverbial cab driver, who wouldn’t need a lot of... [more]

Who's Still Afraid of Video Art?   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/24/14

A few years ago, I was working for a not-for-profit art space in Tel Aviv. One of the most successful shows there was a group exhibition of video works. One afternoon, a woman entered the dark space of the gallery, stopped at the reception desk and asked me: “Are there only video works?” “Yes,” I replied. She turned her back and walked away. Since this incident, I often encountered sentences such as “I hate video art,” “all video works are bad,” and &ldqu... [more]

Post-Capitalist Hip Hop Videos: Our Absurd, Dystopian World   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 11/20/14

Hip Hop and capitalism could be said to share the same ideals. American Hip Hop and the American Dream promote the same goal of self-made material success through carefree consumerism. Money—and spending it—saturates songs and artist monikers (Curren$y, Rich Gang, 50 Cent, All$tar, etc.). Hip Hop’s aesthetic identity has traditionally communicated just as much about consumerist society as its songs. But as confidence in capitalism is waning, with the mass disillusionment followi...

Art's Post-Internet Identity Crisis   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 11/17/14

In his essay “Why I Hate Post-Internet Art” Brian Droitcour complains that “the post-internet art object looks good online in the way that laundry detergent looks good in a commercial.” He bemoans the art object that looks like it has leapt off the screen into the gallery to pose for its photo before being disseminated online. His criticism is that such objects are too aware of the gallery system, playing to the capitalist brand mentality of the art world—the image/ob... [more]

Around 80 percent of the art encounters I have these days begin on my phone, tablet, or computer screen. In most cases I am attempting to find out what's going on and where, so I can then see it in person. But the "where to see it" question is a digital art minefield. Pretty quickly we’re into the daft question of whether it is more real to see a digital work on a large format screen in a gallery than on a phone. Does a show need to have an opening with warm beer and too many people to have... [more]

Guimarães, Portugal, Oct. 2014: When South Korea won the Golden Lion at the 2014 Venice Biennale of Architecture, architect Minsuk Cho said the award could help “trigger the reality of a unified Korea.” While North Korea is making art at the Mansudae Art Studio, South Korea is building the next generation of art stars—in New York. With Korean art increasingly in the spotlight, “The Lineage of Vision: Progress through Persistence,” which opened Wednesday at the... [more]
