Saša Tkačenko

Saša Tkačenko (1979) currently lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia. His artistic practice engages  spaces and their transformation when exposed to other media, as their architectural features  interact with sculpture, video and installation. Tkačenko’s works thus create dynamic situations in  which the audience plays a constituent part, often reflecting on motives and stories from popular  culture and contemporary human life. He has been exhibiting since 2008, including shows at  institutions such as Centre Pompidou Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, mumok –  Museum Moderner Kunst Vienna, Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, MNAC – National  Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest, Times Museum Guangdong, ACP – Australian Centre for  Photography Sydney, Belgrade City Museum, Künstlerhaus Bremen, UnionDocs Center for  Documentary Art New York, Castello di Rivoli – Museo di Arte di Contemporanea Torino. Tkačenko  participated in artist-in-residence programs at ISCP in New York and T.I.C.A-AirLAb Tirana Institute  of Contemporary Art. His works were shown at art fairs such as Liste Art Fair Basel, Rewriting our  imaginations organised by LISTE, Art Geneve, Flash Show Budapest, Not Cancelled (online). His  works are in collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade and Telenor collection of  contemporary art.
