April-June 2023
Being fascinated by historical, cinematic, fictional, gamified, decentralized aspects of technology, Siabro examines 'tools' from different perspectives and enjoys exploring them in connection to a larger context with a share of humour. Often created in collaborations, his works take the forms of videos, installations, and audiovisual performances, experiment with various new media and technology, and investigate connection with the digital world and reality, which day by day is getting thinner. Siabro collaborated with artists Ivan Svitlichniy, SVITER art group, Evgeniy Arlov, Ihor Sokolov, and Georgy Potopalskiy. He has exhibited and performed at media art festivals and cultural venues, including the Kyiv Academy of Media Arts (UA), DNIPROPOP Festival (UA), etc. Until 2021, the artist worked in the field of cinema, gained experience in film production and has worked on numerous non-trivial creative projects. In 2020, he received a master's degree from the Kyiv National University of Film, Television and Theater (production department). In 2018, he graduated from the Kyiv Computer Academy 'Step' (as a developer). Since 2021 Siabro has been a member of the 'Photinus studio', a new media art production studio operating since 2012 and facilitating international art exhibitions – Venice Biennale, transmediale Vorspiel, Digital Cultures (Warsaw, Poland); music and light festivals - Strichka Festival, KievLightFest and many others.
