Lesia Vasylchenko

Tachyoness (2022)

A large screen is showing video of a glowing simulated sunrise. What you are watching is the product of an artificial intelligence. It constructed the sequence after analysing photographs of many sunrises taken over a significant 30 year period, from 1990 (after the collapse of the Soviet Union and Berlin Wall) to the present. The title takes its name from a ‘tachyon’, a hypothetical particle that travels faster than light.

Lesia Vasylchenko (b. 1990 Ukraina, based in Oslo, Norway) is an artist and curator. Her work with installations, moving pictures and photography raises questions around temporality, history and memorialising. Vasylchenko is a co-curator for the artist-run gallery Podium (Oslo) and the founder of STRUKTURA.Time, a pan-disciplinary initiative for research and practice in the area between visual art, media archaeology, literature and philosophy.
