ARTIST TALK: THE PHOTOGRAPHER SERGEI MELNICHENKO (18+)

Sergey Melnichenko's "Behind The Scenes" project about the nightclubs in China received the prestigious Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award 2017 and was featured in the Paris Photo 2017. Also, well-known series by Sergey – "Shwarznegger is my idol" – about young bodybuilders from Nikolaev, was presented in Slovakia, Argentina, Poland and Ukraine during his personal exhibitions.

Sergey is going to tell the Artsvit gallery guests about his most famous series creation, participation in international exhibitions and promotion strategies for young artists.

"The photo language by Sergey Melnychenko in Ukrainian art is clear, fresh and direct," says Konstantin Doroshenko, a contemporary art critic and curator. "He does not follow meters and formed schools, but relies on the artist's personal look and the rhythm that corresponds to his generation. It looks like rap comparison with literary declarations, news reports and poetic sermons of the recent past."

Beginning at 19:00. Free entrance. 18+

* as the title – Sergey's work from the Behind The Scenes series, 2016.
