Curator: Aleksandr Zhuravlev
Artist: Sergey Poteryaev
Sergey Poteryaev’s postindustrial Ural can be seen as a romance of the artist and the Ural locations and towns reflected in photographs. The artist tells us about inconspicuous places of the Urals, each of them connected with himself through a personal story. Poteryaev’s camera captures transformations, exploring vast, in every meaning of the word, spaces from former company towns, villages, and declining settlements to industrial centers and the region capital, Ekaterinburg.
