Artist Statement

Alexander Awramenko is an MA Photography graduate from London College of Communication whose current practice explores the dialectic of stasis and mobility in non-places. The Dying of The Light is a body of photographic work that addresses culturally resonant socio-political issues through the chosen locations and temporary interventions in the form of placed lighting, whilst also suggesting more abstract allegorical readings. The primary function of the lighting, that of a mode of social control, is both articulated and subverted in the work. The interventions are both instructional and deflecting devices, used to articulate conceptual and narrative concerns such as absence, loss, transience, anxiety, the overlooked and neglected, yet also to confuse, misdirect and prohibit simplistic or prescriptive readings. This is both deliberate and vital in the work, blurring the boundaries between the defined and undefined.
