Junge Fotografie aus Russland

Egor Rogalev, Anya Schiller, Alexander Sedelnikov, Yulia Spiridonova, Anastasia Tailakova & Irina Yulieva

Vernissage, Freitag, 13.05.2016, 19 Uhr
Ausstellungsdauer: 14.05. - 05.06.2016

The exhibition EXTENDED MEMORY presents some of the most important and interesting positions in young Russian photography of today. The images are characterized by an attempt to encapsulate permanent presence and flashbacks simultaneously. On the one hand we can see the factuality of the photographic medium placed within a framework, and on the other we realize that fragments are woven together manipulatively to become more than the subject matter. The series creates fictional stories with a sense of destiny and real consequence choreographing miracles. The exhibition shows a variety of juxtapositions and different contexts placed together to remember or perhaps to forget things.

Text to the work:

Hi, buddy, how are you? Where are you? Our paths haven’t crossed in a while now. This evening though, I was thinking of you and discovered that we had never talked about simple things, only struggles and stories of damn mixed up country of ours. The things that really mattered sunk in and left their mark. Sometimes only a handshake — sometimes a peculiar smile — sometimes death — sometimes the smell of vomit — once love.  But enough of that. Have you heard about Alexander? Good God. You and him were about the same age. Please say hello to Anna and to your mom. Do you remember that winter when we were coming from Sergey’s, we were so thirsty, when you suddenly asked “What kinda country is it around here? I’ve never seen it”. Man, we were close, we almost got there.

Take care,
Sasha
