On 19 November 2016, the Anzenberger Gallery will be hosting an artist talk with Danila Tkachenko as part of the Vienna Art Week. The gallery currently presents the Tkachenko’s series Restricted Areas, showing for the first time in an Austrian venue. The exhibition continues until 31 January 2017.
Tkachenko has created a series of symbolic images exploring our flawed ideology of technological progress. Her photographs are a convincing synergy of statement and aesthetics. Captured at locations that were once kept secret from the public, they tell of the scientific triumphs of a former time, but also of the failure to achieve the perfect technocratic future. The series earned Tkachenko a place among the finalists at the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2015.
Born 1989 in Moscow, Tkachenko studied at the School for Photojournalism and the Rodtchenko School for Photography and Multimedia in Moscow. The book Restricted Areas was released by Kehrer Publishing in 2015, and chosen as the Book of the Month on the LFI Blog.
