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 plasticity and abi... [more]
This is a material written in collaboration with Thaís Medina, a professional photographer who invited me to be her partner in storytelling. This way, we created an imaginary journal that Thaís inherited from her grandmother, Nelly Costa, whose love for adventure led her to Africa many decades ago. Her writings were full of notes and records about her experience, leading its readers towards a fascinating and curious ending. However, there is none, for the journal was left unfinished... [more]

Scale suits some artists as much as it defeats others. This sense of risk is pervasively present in Subodh Gupta's frequently enthralling exhibition at Hauser and Wirth's 18th Street space. Spaces as huge as Hauser and Wirth's can often bring out the worst in artists, a profession not uncongenial to those with a streak of grandiosity. Happily, Gupta understands the nature of scale and spectacle better than most artists of his stature, and, in works like the sculpture, "This is Not a Fountain", th... [more]
Four years on from the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor in Japan, radioactive water is still pouring into the sea. In spite of this, life goes on, politicians eat potentially radioactive strawberries for the cameras and something called "art" attempts to process a world as resistant to comprehensibility as the one we call, more or less, home. Into this strange reactor pool comes the show The Radiants bringing together work by Ei Arakawa, Jutta Koether, Sigmar Poke, UNITED BROTHERS and ma... [more]
Painting is perpetually in crisis; rarely does the urgency of the crisis feel as palpable as in Tamar Halpern's show at On Stellar Rays. In an increasingly digital visual eco-system, painters are not forgiven easily if they don't reckon with the changes. Halpern's works-- paintings, in a sense; prints in a sense; even sculptures if looked at in another way--are determined not to be overwritten by the coders.
The works, generally a combination of UltraChrome ink on linen and paper with some o... [more]
Remember those misspent days spent playing Golden Axe? Remember your parents confiscating your Mario Kart? Turns out your parents didn’t appreciate good art when they saw it.

Today many people passionately acknowledge computer game art as relevant, “legitimate,” art. Others believe that computer game art is dumbed down, that the pinnacle of artistic talent was the Renaissance—with "The Masters," like Caravaggio, Leon... [more]
Chemould Prescott Road’s presentation of CAMP’s As If – IV: Night for Day, surrounds the viewer in an animated darkness framed by reflections of the outside world. These words—“outside,” “animated darkness,” “surround”—could sum up what CAMP (Critical Art & Media Practice), a Mumbai-based studio for transdisciplinary media practices, is setting out to do. Over the years, CAMP principals Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran have engaged with med... [more]

“What the fuck am I looking at?”
This is what Beatrix Ruf thought when she first encountered a work by Ed Atkins. The new Stedelijk Museum Director is not one to get caught up in diplomatic niceties—and at the press preview of Recent Ouija she didn’t mind repeating the question. Her confusion has turned out to be inspirational, though: last year she curated a show with the British artist at the Zurich Kunsthalle, and now she has landed him his first solo show in the Neth...

At least I can say I am in the stream. As careers go, "they" want you to have consistent showings. This adds credibility to your portfolio. It also insures that the flavor you are selling is something other people have already tried. So I am thankful, gratefull for these opportunities. Though I confess, I always am at a loss at these affairs. Again it is like speed dateing, What are you supposed to say? I should think of a script or just talk about each piece like it is one of my chi... [more]

Why do we need agents, the 00 section? Isn't it all rather quaint? Well, I suppose I see a different world than you do, and the truth is that what I see frightens me. I'm frightened because our enemies are no longer known to us. They do not exist on a map, they aren't nations. They are individuals. So before you declare us irrelevant, ask yourselves—how safe do you feel?
The question: how safe do you feel? How safe do we feel in a world where technology has been absorbed? Wh... [more]
