Oleg Perkowsky0Mb, 1Min

In his work Synchronizing the Present, Oleg Perkowsky addresses the issue of time, and the possibility of documenting the moment. He realizes this idea through the image of an ongoing construction site. The exposition focuses on the slide projection of photographs of unfinished buildings in the city of Uzhhorod and on its outskirts, appearing as completed objects within the framework of the architectural rhythm of the streets and landscapes. The artist strips the images of ongoing construction sites of all social and political contexts, foregrounding reflections on the position of an individual in the Universe in the period of constant acceleration. By observing ongoing construction sites, the artist seems to invite us to slow down and come in sync with the earthly nature in its present state.
