Artist in Focus | Anastasia KOROLKOVA

By /ART/, /BLOG/, /NEWS/

In the glamorous yet gritty world of contemporary art and photography, Anastasia Korolkova shines like a diamond in the rough. Born in Moscow in 1998, Anastasia’s journey into the realm of artistry began at the British Higher School of Art & Design, where she graduated in 2016. It was there that the seeds of her unique vision were planted, eventually blossoming into a career that challenges and redefines the boundaries of conventional photography. Her approach to photography is nothing short of revolutionary. For Anastasia, the camera isn’t just a tool—it’s a liberating force, a way to make emotions tangible and slow down the relentless march of time. Guided by the affective nature of life and a profound fear of amnesia, she captures the fragile, fleeting moments that make up our human experience. Her work isn’t just about creating pretty pictures; it’s about capturing the raw, unfiltered essence of life.

Interview with Nina Hauben

Interview with Nina Hauben

Step into the world of photography through the lens of Amsterdam-based photographer Nina Hauben. A graduate of the esteemed Amsterdam Fashion Institute in International Fashion Management, Hauben’s work reflects a unique blend of artistry and innovation. With upcoming exhibitions at Haute Photographie in Amsterdam, as well as a showcase at NockNock Art, Hauben’s visual storytelling continues to captivate audiences.

Can you share with us your journey as a photographer, starting from your graduation at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute?

My journey as a photographer unfolded organically after completing my studies at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute in Fashion Management. While I began my career in Fashion Marketing and Art Direction, I soon found myself drawn to the visual aspects, alongside my growing desire for entrepreneurial exploration. Now, all these elements blend seamlessly into my journey as a photographer.

How do you blend elements of fine art and fashion in your photography work, and what inspires this unique fusion?
My work serves as a visual narrative of (un)spoken words, mostly in black and white. My process is intuitive, often inspired by my emotions and experiences. I see photography as a unique language I need to “speak” to express feelings. I start by conceptualizing ideas that personally resonate with me, drawing from my life and observations. From there, I collaborate closely with a creative team to bring these concepts to life. Throughout the process, I remain open to spontaneity, allowing for the unexpected to shape the final outcome.

Could you tell us about your experience showcasing your work at Haute Photographie in Rotterdam in 2024? What was the response to your exhibition?
Exhibiting at Haute Photographie in Rotterdam, the Netherlands was a great experience, at this exhibition the series “With(out) “ was presented. This series is about:
“In the end, all that’s left are memories we have. It’s a fear that memories, like wisps of smoke, will dissipate with time, leaving me with a void that cannot be filled. I wish I could have collected more of these memories. As I can’t hear your voice, your footsteps, or feel your presence, I have to pretend, so that’s what I do.”
It was rewarding to see how people reacted to the work, resonated with people and started conversation. At the moment I’m already preparing for the next edition in Amsterdam in September.

Looking ahead, what are your aspirations or goals as a fine art and fashion photographer based in Amsterdam?

I always say, the most important journey you can take is one of self-discovery. Through my work, I’ve discovered more about myself. This continuous process of creation provides something that I can always reflect upon later. There’s still much to learn, as long as I’m creating I’m confident that I’m on the right path. However, my ambitions extend beyond personal exploration; my goal is expanding my work and style.

In focus Anya Mokhova

Meet Anya Mokhova, a contemporary artist based in London renowned for her captivating installations and sculptural creations that transport visitors into meticulously crafted worlds of wonder.

Through intricate processes like incrustation, engraving, and casting, she masterfully merges rigid and soft textures, natural and artificial elements to construct a unique visual language that beckons for tactile engagement.

Drawing inspiration from classical frescoes and sculptures, Anya’s art elicits strong emotions and challenges the boundaries between the tangible and the metaphysical. Her evocative works offer a multi-sensory experience, inviting viewers to contemplate the interplay of reality and imagination within the realm of artistically crafted objects and space.

PAPER POSITIONS BERLIN 25. – 28. April 2024

PAPER POSTIONS BERLIN 25. – 28. April 2024

As part of the eighth edition of paper positions berlin, taking place from April 25th to 28th parallel to Gallery Weekend Berlin, this year 60 international galleries showcase over 150 artistic positions from 11 countries. All positions in contemporary and modern art share one thing in common: they revolve around drawing and the material of paper. Presented in curated solo and group exhibitions, a diverse range of works on and with paper will be showcased in the atrium of the Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepräsentanz. The salon-like character of our fair, avoiding closed-off booths, fosters an open and friendly atmosphere, leaving ample room for interaction.

The medium of paper knows no bounds; it has edges and corners, occasionally a sensationalist character, but at its core, a delicately fibrous heart. It encourages artists to experiment, to implement ideas, and to reject them without risking vast sums of material costs. It creates a low threshold for access, both in artistic engagement and for those looking to purchase their first or tenth artwork. For these reasons, paper forms the core of our art fair, becoming the plaything of artistic expression for each position. Exhibiting artists sew structures into the paper, draw fine pencil lines, print on it, scalp it, form sculptures, tear, collage, photograph, deconstruct, reconstruct, and delve into its hidden structures down to the fibers.

In addition to famous positions from classical modernism such as Lyonel Feininger (Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel, Hamburg), Pablo Picasso, Otto Dix (Kunkel Fine Art, Munich), and Lotte Laserstein (Dr. Nöth Kunsthandel + Galerie, Potsdam), contemporary talents are given a stage: Farniyaz Zaker (O Gallery, Tehran), Thomas Trum (CONRADS, Berlin), Tim Berresheim (Galerie Elisabeth & Reinhard Hauff), Mariella Mosler (Drawing Room Hamburg), or Esther Hagenmaier (SMUDAJESCHECK, Munich), to name a few.

Salon Format as an Art Fair

For seasoned and aspiring collectors, paper positions berlin offers a wide spectrum and low-threshold access to high-quality contemporary art, modern art,and 19th-century art.

Visitors are provided with an overview of the uniqueness of the medium of paper. The paper and the artists can reveal themselves from all angles. Characteristic of paper positions is the concept of an art salon in the form of a fair: byforgoing traditional booths, the atmosphere resembles that of a large, bright, and airy group exhibition. This allows for perception, discovery, rediscovery, and direct exchange about the artistic positions in dialogue. In their delicacy,vulnerability, and immediacy, the paper works benefit from the exclusiveattention they receive at this specialized art fair.
