Photographer Igor Savchenko is one of the key figures of Belarusian conceptual art and photographic movement in Minsk of the late 1980s and early 1990s. His works can be found in the collections of the most prominent museums, such as The Hasselblad Collection, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Museum of Fine Arts. The State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg hosts a big collection of Savchenko’s works. Despite this, Russia, and especially Moscow, has not seen yet an extensive show of Igor’s works.
The exposition features photographic series taken from 1989 until 2008. Each of them is an important milestone in the author’s relationship with reality, memory and history, as well as with the very notion of photography, the development of photography as method and idea.
The exhibition will be held in the frame of the long-term project "Anthology of the XX-th century Russian Photography. Photo 80-90." The opening will see Q&A with the artist, related lectures are also planned for the duration of the exhibition.
