Galleri Naboløs is pleased to announce Sergei Sviatchenko’s first solo exhibition. On Friday afternoon from 16.00-20.00 @ Valkendorfsgade 15, the exhibition
offers a glimpse into Sergei’s world through time and shows a varying range of artworks, focusing on Svaitchenko’s use of photography and collage elements within his works, which are transformed into sharp, contoured and sculptural expressions.
The artist’s new work is based on the book by Layla Alexander-Garrett ‘Andrei Tarkovsky – A Collector of Dreams’. Layla Alexander-Garret worked as Tarkovsky’s personal translator during his last film ‘The Sacrifice’. ‘For Light and Memory part 1’ is not a dialogue, nor a statement of ideas, but rather photographic collage poetry.
The works show the process of navigating through the rapid flow of visual impressions that a contemporary consumer is constantly confronted with. The way this is accomplished is not along a highway leading to clear answers and a panoramic overview. Instead, we follow a myriad of paths inspiring the spectator to reflect upon the power of images and think about how meaning is attributed, exchanged and constantly contested.
