ARTIST TALK WITH ANTON TKACHENKO
18.01.2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Anton Tkachenko will talk about his project “Nomenclature” and answer all questions about the project and his other works.
The concept of “Nomenclature” has numerous meanings, but for the author of the project it means showing knowledge of geographic maps at school. This word evokes in the artist’s memory that moment during a geography lesson when a pupil is called to the board and you have to give an answer: what exactly is shown on the map. “Here it is the very gesture of reporting on your knowledge of the contour map you have been studying, and then demonstrating your knowledge of what is a fact,” — Anton Tkachenko.
Anton Tkachenko studied at Kharkiv National University of Construction and Architecture. He works with topics of memory, including memory of the city and architecture in general, paying great attention to the organization of space in his projects.
