A Slideluck Potshow London/DEVELOP Tube creative collaboration. From Aleksander Sedelnikov: “See You Later is the phrase we use to postpone the inevitable. I don’t know if it means to see somebody soon or never again.”
This history is about people, sounds, smell and states. Movement from one town to another, from one extreme to another shows the total repression of desire to destruction on the one hand and its unrestrained realization on the other hand.
These are the places you keep in mind all the time but cannot visit again and sudden flash-backs that are always with you despite your wish.
This is a fear for others, awareness of the impotence and turning outside instead of turning to yourself. The inevitability of being under the look the of the other. The feeling of anonymity and the need to undertake it.
This is a sympathy and at the same time lie and self-deception. Guilt feeling because of the lack of sincerety. The inevitable look aside. Rejection and failure to understand.
See you later the latest exhibition of Alexander Sedelnikov, is on display at the FotoDepartment Gallery of Saint Petersburg. Alexander Sedelnikov is a Russian photographer born in Kasly in 1986. His pictures were taken in both Saint Petersburg and the Chelyabinsk region.
