ALEXANDER PONOMAREV




Drawing upon his background in nautical engineering and an early career as a submariner, Ponomarev uses journeys on the sea as a starting point to explore the relationship between illusion and ‘reality’, the utility of art, and the shifting tides of personal and cultural history. The works in this exhibition issue from journeys undertaken by the artist – to the North Pole, to the bottom of the ocean and while tracking the 60th latitude of the Atlantic onboard a scientific research ship. His work presents unbelievable stories from his voyages and takes the form of epic aquatic installations and performative engagement with remote seas and arctic terrain.
