Catalogue Note

The static yet enigmatic photographs of Ilya Rabinovich deal with issues of identity against the background of social structures. The focus of Rabinovich's practice lies on places that are subjected to radical changes. In 2005 he photographed the interiors of Hotel Rossiya (Moscow) shortly before its demolition. In this project he finds a connection with his background culture by investigating how power and authority were/are presented in the former ussr, and nowadays Russia. Kisheniev – Johannesburg is a collaborative project with Luan Nel (ra 1998-1999) about their places of origin. Although they come from two remote countries, there are certain similarities. Both places have in a sense 'changed hands'. Moldova changed from a communist state to what is considered a democracy. Johannesburg has/is changing from an apartheid city to a cosmopolitan metropolis. Rabinovich made two series of photographs of Kisheniev and Johannesburg respectively. Nel made a series of paintings concentrating on Johannesburg and Kisheniev and deals with the idea of memory and the sometimes illusive character of it.

Ilya Rabinovich was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1998-1999.
