Serhiy Yakimenko

Category:

On March 5, at 6:00 pm, an exhibition of Ukrainian artist Serhiy Yakimenko will open at the YermilovCenter in Kharkiv. "Paradise Day" is a personal multimedia project that summarizes the artist's creative activity over the past few years.

The center will feature large-scale canvases, neon inscriptions, objects and video art that will fill and organize the exhibit space with an appropriate, fully representative amount of items used. Over the long term, the author has created numerous paintings and installation works that realize the idea of ​​combining cultures of the West and the East.

The first ideas came to light in 2014, when most of the artist's new works were created on cardboard boxes. Serhiy admits that he used the packages not only as a place for sorting and storing visual assets but as a piece of art related to the theme of human memory and privacy, that is, memories themselves become new tools of the artist.

The main purpose of the exhibition is to show the dynamics and inter-integration of used symbols and details as components of modernity. Composite play, by design, freely integrates the latest artistic trends and genres, including comics, graffiti, and anime. Bright and high-tech images that have been around for a long time create a 3D reality presence effect. To be here-and-now for the artist means to push yourself out of the vacuum of the past. In a world that needs change, Yakimenko aims to focus first and foremost on the cultural relationships that the current Ukrainian pop art presents in this worldview of the artist.

“YermilovCenter is an institution whose main tasks are to promote Ukrainian contemporary art and support young authors. For the most part, we prefer curatorial projects, and we do personal exhibitions only when the author offers us an original and bright idea that is hard to refuse. I am sure that the Paradise Day exhibition project is exactly what it is worth to come and look at, "said Natalia Ivanova, Director of YermilovCenter. The exhibition will be supported by Abramovych.Art.

The Danger Stranger Band performance from the Theater NEFT https://www.facebook.com/teatr.neft/ with the participation of Artem Usik, Stas Kononov and Alexander Shay will take place as part of the opening.

Sergey Yakimenko is a Ukrainian artist living and working in Kharkiv. Nominee of the PinchukArtCentre Award 2015. His exhibitions were held in the artistic spaces of Kyiv and Kharkiv (Unlimited Art Foundation, PinchukArtCentre, UkrPoshta Art Hub).
