Saša Tkačenko

Brief info

Saša Tkačenko practice revolves around the exploration of representational modes and models in the public sphere — the spaces of social communication and exchange that constitute the unstable scenographies of contemporaneity. Observing how appearances of (public) places and their transformation are being constructed, he explores their spatial and sound aspects by exposing them to image-based media such as video and photography, as well as by translating their architectural features to fields of sculpture and installation. In so doing, he provokes the performative potential of given spaces and creates dynamic situations in the exhibition format and within the works presented to the audience. The investigation of the historical and institutional background of the places and their strategies of representation play an important role in this process. His work is shown in Serbia and abroad in, to include: Centre Pompidou Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, mumok - Museum Moderner Kunst Vienna, Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Zagreb, MNAC - National Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest, Times Museum Guangdong, Museum of Contemporary Art of Vojvodina Novi Sad, ACP - Australian Centre for Photography Sydney, Belgrade City Museum, Künstlerhaus Bremen, UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art New York, Castello di Rivoli - Museo di Arte di Contemporanea Torino). He participated in artist-in-residence programs at ISCP in New York and T.I.C.A-AirLAb Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art. His works are in collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade and Telenor collection of contemporary Serbian art.
