Serhiy Bratkov

16 May 2007 - 2 September 2007

For twenty years, Serhiy Bratkov has photographed the unique absurdities of everyday life that have taken hold in the streets of Kyiv, Kharkiv and Moscow since the disintegration of the Soviet Union. Bratkov always works in series, calling into question the validity of a single point of view.

Additional Information

For his first exhibition in the United Kingdom, Bratkov has created a series of new portrait works which will be displayed in staff office windows visible to the public from the level 2 gallery space. By incorporating these works into the architecture of the gallery, Bratkov continues to explore his interest in new modes of large scale photography.

Alongside the photographs, will be two video works documenting the social matrix of Eastern Europeans today.
