Dorokhov Sergey

Sergey Dorokhov was born in 1988.

In 2012, he graduated with honors from Moscow State Academic Art Institute Named After V.I. Surikov Of Russian Academy Of Arts. In 2015, he graduated from the creative workshops of the Russian Academy of Arts.

In 2013, he became a member of the Moscow Union of Artists and the Russian Union of Artists.

Since 2019, he has been studying at the BAZ Institute under the guidance of A. Osmolovsky.

Sergey Dorokhov is a regular participant of exhibitions of contemporary art platforms, multiple prize-winner and participant of European exhibitions. His works are in private collections in Russia, Europe and Asia.

He has received awards and medals from the Russian Academy of Arts, the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Moscow Union of Artists of Russia and the Government of Moscow, as well as awards from the Embassy of Serbia in Moscow and the Russian Embassy in London.

Participation in a number of projects in the field of contemporary art is also marked by awards and prizes, including awards from ROSIZO.

My work is closely connected with events and phenomena taking place on the political scene of our country and the world. I deeply analyze the events and phenomena of the past, which have the peculiarity of maintaining their relevance in the present and a certain projection into the future. I actively work with the themes of post-memory in the collective consciousness of society. I am inspired by the works of Mark Fischer " Capitalist realism "and Fredric Jamieson"Postmodernism, or the Cultural logic of late capitalism". Also Boris Groys, especially his scientific works and texts about the art of Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin wall. In my opinion, these authors most fundamentally reveal the unique collision of two radically different systems of society and the world order, as well as transitional practices and side effects. The greatest interest is caused by these projections in the art format.

In my works, I reflect the problem of interaction between society and the authorities at the expense of a certain artistic language. The combination of black and a certain monochrome in combination with bright marker accents forms the basis of my work. This color aesthetic is not accidental. In my work, I dismantle and handle the events, statements, people, society and their attitude of the moment of reality, vigorena form the past through the overlap of one to another, which expresses the fact that the result or consequence of a situation that occurred in the past, persists to the moment of current reality and can be projected into the future without loss of relevance, in a situation of present and past time. Current situationality is expressed in all forms, both everyday perception and social perception. This is working with the concept of post-memory and archetypes of the past, in the projection of modern digital or analog image defects, in the combination of several compositional systems together.

Also, in my works, I often resort to citation, using fragments of phrases, showing how a word changes its semantic meaning depending on the context in which it is wrapped.

I reflect on the conflicts of our society, returning to the key moment in the formation of people of my generation - the nineties and noughties. Referring to this period, I choose symbols and aesthetics that are understandable to people who lived through this time. A time of great expectations and deep disappointment, the remnants of which still stick in the development of our society. While it's important for me not to take a position, but only to give the audience a chance to wonder what they are flashes of past events left in myself today and ready to carry in the future, maybe in another videofreegay form of perception.

    Asterisms Of Sergey Dorokhov

    Sergey Dorokhov is the same age as the first Sotheby's auction, where Grisha Bruskin's painting "Fundamental lexicon" left. This event made a revolution in Russian culture by artists quite different terms of art classes. In the thirty-year perspective, Sergey Dorokhov is the result of the Sotheby's event. First, being a professional painter by training from the Surikov Institute, he took up modern art. Secondly, he began to create painting in accordance with Bruskin's semiotic turn, namely as a lexicon. And third, his artistic activity fits into the institutional situation set by the economy of the gallery business, fairs, auctions, that is, modern art capitalism.
    Here you can add another point that characterizes the style of Sergey Dorokhov's work – in his paintings, he writes a protest. Thematically, they protest against the liberal political order, in which freedom becomes only a screen for the offensive of reaction on all fronts. But the very style of using pictorial language in them, which has been eroded by illusionist oppression since time immemorial, is also a protest. Sergey Dorokhov lays out painting as it is – not as art, but as a requirement for art, as a result of which it acquires a poster paradoxical statements and graffiti scope of content. This is a struggle with the spectacle, rooted in the awareness of its significance and totality.
    Once the artist Andrey Filippov, who belongs to the Sotheby's generation, borrowed the principle of Magritte's " Golconda "and wrote" Rome - Rome " in letters made up of eagles spreading their wings, diagnosing the Imperial ambitions of totalitarianism. Now Sergey Dorokhov writes "Freedom" and "Power" in letters made up of a man from a crowd or dogs from a pack, diagnosing the totality of the modern performance.
    Another point of Sergey Dorokhov's pictorial language is its post-Internet sensuality. His paintings seem to "flicker" and "pixel". The protest that he writes has as its constituent order a screen, the construction of which is rooted in the virtual. It is both rigidly structured and in the process of being destroyed, creating a figure of desire that oxidizes the spectral perception of color, which further enhances the sense of information and digital transcendence.
    Sergey Dorokhov creates quite a unique lexicon of the digital age, playing in the spirit of social artistry symbols of political, military, and economic power, contrasting them with the freedom of the crowd as a virtualized person without properties. His double-headed eagles, "Kalash", "riot police", oil rigs are not collected on the chessboard of post-Internet paintings, but this is the specificity and value of his art as an artist of the new time, who thinks of the space-time contours of the present not as reinforced by the grid of modernism, but as open to capitalist catastrophe.
