Still Life in Photography

Yu. Sernova. Behind glass. No. 3. 2008. Digital print on paper
1 march—7 may 2018

Contemporary still life in photography demonstrates a variety of trends and approaches: from homages to classic pompous arrangements à la golden age of still life to the minimalistic elegance of constructivism.

Each artist working in this genre tackles his or her own specific tasks. Some of them focus on formal qualities of an image bringing forward color, the play of volumes, harmonious composition, etc.; others use specific imagery to turn an object into a symbol, finding a deep meaning behind a down-to-earth subject. The photographic language of such still lifes is laconic and simple, compositions are stripped of extra details in order for the viewer to concentrate on the object, which in its turn transforms into a sign, a symbol.

Work with form, texture, and light, unusual angles, dramatic close-ups evoking viewer’s associations, and unexpected choice of objects — all of this contributes to the development of the traditional still life and gives it a new look.

The exhibition includes photographs by:
