Sergey and Olga Kamennoy. Тhe album of a discharged soldier .

25, July 2017 · News, Visiting Artists

We are glad to present “ Тhe album of a discharged soldier” – a collective project of Sergey and Olga Kamennoy, artists who live and work in France since 2003.

A short introduction by Sergey about the project and the artists themselves:

It so happened that Olga and I started working together, even though she hadn’t gone through any formal artistic education. But in fact, she has been self-educating with such a speed, that nowadays no project is executed without her participation. Moreover, since I am color-blind, all aspects related to color fall under her responsibility.

Both of us love theater, exhibitions, second-hand markets and our house in Normandy, which interior we are constantly re-designing. And I can no more imagine myself working alone.

We began the project “The Discharge Album” in 2008. After my son Taras Kamennoy had been recruited to the army in Ukraine I thought about the discharge album* he would create during his military service. What kind of album would a young artist, a cynic and a nihilist make? What would he create in this genre of army subculture?

*In the ex-Soviet army subculture, the discharge album is a unique hand-made book that contains photographs, texts and drawings about the army life. It is created by the soldier himself in only one copy.

“T Тhe album of a discharged soldier”, “RODOVID” publishing, Ukraine, Kiev.
The authors specially thank Lidia Lykhach and Misha Pendan for their belief in the project, and Nikolay Shtock for his assistance in design.
