About This Art Edition

The works from the series "For Light And Memory" are based on the book "Andrei Tarkovsky: A Collector of Dreams" about the groundbreaking Soviet and Russian filmmaker by Layla Alexander-Garrett, who worked as Tarkovsky’s personal interpreter and assistant during his last film, "The Sacrifice". These works are neither a dialogue, nor a statement of ideas, but rather photographic collage poetry.

Sergei Sviatchenko was born in Ukraine and now lives and works in Viborg, Denmark. He graduated from the Kharkov Academy of Art and Architecture as an artist and architect in 1975 and received his PhD from the Kiev School of Architecture in 1986. Sviatchenko is a provocateur in the world of contemporary art whose collages and paintings have been exhibited in Denmark, Germany, Italy, France, England, Canada, and the USA.

Drawing on and harnessing all of the cultural tides he has experienced in 40 years of image-making, Sviatchenko’s oeuvre spans the known and the unimaginable. It cuts through the boundaries of traditional and contemporary visuals to merge pop culture with politics, personal memory with collective histories, and architecture and science with the logic of dreams.

Sviatchenko has worked with a broad range of subjects and media. He experiments, challenges, and abolishes where other artists move within established comfort zones. From his early work as a conceptual artist and collage maker, he moved on to abstract painting and has done commissions and large-scale murals for international brands and institutions. More recently, Sviatchenko has created the fashion-forward photography project Close Up and Private in which he has worked with brands such as Costume National. With a portfolio and methodology in perpetual evolution, his influences include modernism, surrealism, and rock music.
