         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]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium. And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]

The language of visual information in the digital age has a surprising connection to water: video streams, .wav files, image pools, torrents. All this leads up to the biggest metaphoric aquatic body yet: what the MoMA Department of Photography calls the “Ocean of Images.” Ocean of Images marks the 30th anniversary of MoMA’s New Photography series. It also signals a few changes to the show. Previously an annual event featuring the work of a handful of artists, in its new guise the sho... [more]

Photography Is Magic: Charlotte Cotton on How the New Generation of Image-Makers Are Like Illusionists   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/13/15

Charlotte Cotton’s book Photography Is Magic is one of the first collections of photography by a major publisher (Aperture) to acknowledge and explore the new generation of idea-driven image-makers. The publication, which that takes into account work that has emerged within the past decade, questions the role of photography in the post-internet environment, featuring artists that investigate and subvert its tools and techniques, and expand it into interdisciplinary realms and practices. These... [more]

Paris Photo Emerging Gallery Spotlight: East Wing   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/13/15

Photography—as James Loks pointed out not so long ago—is going through a phase of confidence, with surreal, hyperreal Toiletpaper aesthetics trending strongly in the work of emerging artists. John Berger, in his 1968 essay "Understanding a Photograph," refers to "those absurd studio works in which the photographer arranges every detail of his subject before he takes the picture." Berger foresaw the great potential of photography as an artistic and humanist practice, but at the time he didn't p... [more]

Merging with the Universe

At any given time you will find me involved in reading several books. Recently "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers" has had my attention as chapter 27 the Stream Of Life provides for me some confirmation about the nature of my creative work. Heres my attempt at an excerpt: I've finished reviewing my book of life and am on to a new phase.... I woke in my light body siting next to a magical stream. It seems to go on forever but is only a few yards across. This is not a stream in the usual sense. It has no... [more]

David Stewart Wins the UK's Biggest Photographic Portrait Prize   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 11/11/15

David Stewart was awarded the £12,000 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2015 last night at an awards ceremony at the National Portrait Gallery, where his portrait will be on display alongside a selection chosen from almost 5,000 entries, at an exhibition running until February 21, 2016. Stewart's winning entry is a restaged photograph of his 2008 entry of his daughter and friends after completing their university degrees. It's the 16th time Stewart's work has been selected for the annua... [more]

Science Does Not Equal Freedom: The Dangers of Celebrating a Techno-Utopia   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 11/10/15

What is freedom? This is what the current exhibition, Gradi di libertà, at Bologna’s Museum of Modern Art, (MAMbo) attempts to answer through the lenses of art and science. The idea is to present science that has “freed” us from the trials of a pre-modern society, while showing that art continues to comment on and complicate the human relationship to freedom. Works from Ryan Trecartin, Vanessa Beecroft, and Bob and Roberta Smith all stand alongside vitrines with examples of tec... [more]

What Do Artists Eat? Studio Cooking Serves Up Performance, Art, and Your Next Meal   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

In 1990, Rirkrit Tiravanija dished out Pad Thai to visitors at the opening of his exhibition at Paula Allen Gallery in New York. It was a meal, and it was art—dematerialized and suspended in a web of social interactions. Today that ephemeral meal-artwork has achieved almost mythical status, living on as the standard bearer of what came to be known as Relational Aesthetics. More than 20 years later, food, and the acts of making and consuming it, continues to be a site of meaning and relationshi... [more]

Embody, disembody, co-embody, somebody, nobody: today, we are continually confronted with the complexities that result from attempts to prescribe and describe "the body." Race, age, politics, economy, sexuality, and gender all affect our physical form so individually that “there is no generic body, no such thing as 'the body'; bodies are raced, gendered, and assisted differently in the world”—as artist and writer Hannah Black says. How do we find a balance between expressing differen... [more]

Even 30 years later, you cannot feel but sorry for the poor French TV journalist who interviewed Robert Frank in 1984. He must have been quite happy before filming—he had succeeded where most important magazines and newspapers had failed: actually securing an interview with the most influential photographer alive. But everything goes awry right from the start. “I hate these fucking interviews,” is the first thing that comes out of Frank’s mouth. Lots of expletives follow,... [more]

Posted 10/30/15

Terrorists in the Library, a speculative research project organized by Chicago-based curator Ruslana Lichtzier, is a peculiar specimen. For one, it is located in the President’s Gallery of Harold Washington College in Chicago’s Loop, as part of Pedestrian Project, a lecture and exhibition program at the college. Situated at the end of a hallway on the eighth floor, adjacent to rows of administrative workstations, the work that is immediately noticeable is garishly out of place, and the those works not so...
