Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven travel around Ukraine, realizing different photographic series that deal with the presence of the human body within undisturbed nature. In their work they represent framed landscapes as abstracted and sublimated places disrupted by the introduction of a self-portrait into the image. These self-portraits are often reduced to a body with a continually transforming skin, strangely absorbed but alienated from its natural background.
For the exhibition of the nominees for the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2013, Synchrodogs have travelled to Iceland, continuing their practice of playful discovering, framing, disrupting and capturing sublime natural environments in their staged photographs.
