Igor Chekachkov NA4JOPM8
Igor Chekachkov’s ‘NA4JOPM8’ is a kind of reaction that at first glance appears as an intervention. In fact, it is attempt to accept the destruction of his ten-year archive, which occurred when a hard disk with 250,000 images on it malfunctioned. When the files were recovered, images were superimposed on each other, destroying the saturated colour bars but also resulting in new images, all marked by digital artefacts. Unexpectedly, this loss allowed him to realise the artistic task he had been considering for several years – to associate in a single photographic work the intimate with the public. The series thus combines reportage photography and the most personal photos.
