Tatiana Stadnichenko: Broken Windows 

March 9 – April 8, 2017

Opening: Thursday, March 9 at 6pm in SACI’s Maidoff Gallery, Florence


Tatiana Stadnichenko is a Russian artist, recently graduated from the Bergen Academy of Art in Norway. Her work explores the physical and mental boundaries of public spaces through architectural details, stored in our collective memory. She examines how the moving images of urban places can act as abstract contemplations of spaces. She investigates how urban landscapes are shaping our identity, lifestyle, and behavior in the historical point of time when migration, nomadism, globalization, and the mix of nations are reaching a critical point.

In the video-installation Broken Windows, she combines architecture from the countries where she has lived over the last few years: Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Italy. The flow of images is overlapping, transforming and mixing the space, creating an architectural river, slow waterfalls of windows and doors, people’s places, and Tatiana’s own personal spaces. Memory removes unnecessary details, creating accents at the most important moments of what constructs the mental map of locations.

For last two years Tatiana’s projects have been screened in Sweden, Norway, Canada, USA, Russia, Finland, and Italy.

The sound was made in collaboration with Swedish sound-artist David Heikkinen by reading the frequency of images in a software program and transforming them into a wave audio-segment.

For more information about her work, see Tatiana’s website.
