Alexander Ankirskiy (b.1988 in Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan). Lives and works in Fukuoka City (Japan). Alexander Ankirskiy’s work was influenced in many ways by the arthouse cinema philosophy, in particular by the films directed by David Lynch and Jim Jarmusch. The artist works with digital and analogue photography and experiments with various cameras, lenses and film types. The Iceland on Film series, exhibited by the Art-Icon Gallery presents the artist’s reflections of the role and meaning of the object in the universe. Viewing the photographic frame as a canvas, Alexander Ankirskiy gives lots of meaning to the composition and perspective. As a result of the artist’s attention to both the aesthetic and technical sides of photography, the outcome is the meditative, reflective atmosphere of the Iceland on Film series.
