Please join us and meet photographer Kristina Jurotschkin who will be presenting her first book Nothing but Clouds, published by MACK.
Kristina will talk about her work in our ground floor Café from 18.30, followed by a Book Signing in the Bookshop.
Nothing but Clouds were the words used by the research commission in Andrey Tarkovsky’s 1986 film Solaris to deny video evidenced traces of alien life on the planet. Taking this disclaimer as the title, this meditative book by Kristina Jurotschkin brings together images, made in various places in Europe over numerous years, from her photographic archive. The result is a possible archive of the future of our present, or an archaeological survey anticipated for the future. Examining the construction of our social reality, Jurotschkin presents alienating views of everyday spaces.
Kristina Jurotschkin is a visual artist based in Leipzig. She currently studies photography under the direction of Peter Piller at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. She received a Master of Arts in Russian Literature and Sociology and in 2015 she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In 2017, Nothing but Clouds was shortlisted for the MACK First Book Award.
Wed 15 Nov, 18.30 - 20.00, Café and Bookshop.
Free event, no booking.
