Artem Trofimenko

He provides darkroom support at Cork Film Centre’s f.Project analogue group in Sample Studios. In the summer of 2022 he joined the Slow Camera Exchange project under initiative of Jessica Marbe and Creative Ireland, facilitating a series of workshops in analogue photography. He has taken part in numerous exhibitions and received an Agility Award in 2022 that led to the body of work titled “Quiddity”. In November 2022 he published and launched his first photography book “Tuuli”. The work developed in "Quiddity" was performed in Plugd, featured at Stamp Festival and Cinesalon May 2023. Artem's research is in discovering moments when an everyday object, being recognised as symbolic, becomes a ‘dream object’. The rhyming of poetic images allows a glimpse at the undercurrent rhythms, serendipitous connections, drawing relationships between dream and waking world. A moment when a voice is distinguished, a point of convergence, quiddity.
