Limited Edition Print- Kon Trubkovich, Untitled, 2016
Kon Trubkovich, a Moscow-born artist now in NYC, explores confinement, rebellion, and autonomy through paintings, drawings, photos, and sculptures, drawing inspiration from events like Attica Prison Riots and Stanford Prison Experiment. He intriguingly parallels the artist's studio and prison as spaces of cyclical rebellion and containment, utilizing distortion from source footage to create captivating artworks resembling partial memories. Exhibiting globally since 2006, his work has been shown in locations such as PS1 and Kunstmuseum Bern.
During his residency, Trubkovich developed a double-plate print, Depicting a portrait of his wife enhanced by her fingerprints, facilitated by a soft plate, to that of what appears to be an eerie night view of leafless branches. Playing into the most classic dichotomies, the style is reminiscent of his usual preoccupation with found and hijacked footage of riots, prisons, or other disturbing events.
