born 1966 in Moscow, is a Russian artist working with large scale photograpy. In 2010 a first personal exhibition “Non-Apparent World” in the Triumph Gallery took place (curator Irina Meglinskaya). Arsen Revazov’s works are present in museums and private collections in the USA, Central America, Europe and Russia. Since 2013 Arsen lives and works predominantly in Venice.
ar33studio is a photographic workshop and studio based in Venice, lead by the artist Arsen Revazov. Ar33studio is conceived as both a place of production and real time exhibition of the artist’s research, whilst also acting as an open place for workshops and events related to photography and contemporary art.
Arsen Revazov’s artistic research deals both with B/W and color photography. Combining traditional techniques (large-format camera, platinum prints, long exposure) with new inventions of the last century (infrared technologies), the artist attempts to explore the potential of photography as a way of translating the world into a luminescent process, a drama of perception of light and darkness, brightness and opacity.
His photographic practice is a pilgrimage through the universes of light registered in landscape, where human and natural traces, past and present are captured in co-existence, and where from the very place of this co-existence beauty may appear.
Starting from this premises, Arsen Revazov literally conceives himself as a photographer mid-voyage, a body in motion through distances of spaces and times, in ancient and modern cities, natural and human landscapes, making photography a way of capturing what, in this movement, remains as the trace of an un-edited relation.
