Uladzimir Hramovich (1989) — artist, lives and works in Minsk and Gdansk. Graduated from the Gymnasium-College of Arts named after i.o. Akhremchik in Minsk (2009) and the graphics arts department of the Belarusian StateAcademy of Arts in Minsk (2015). He is a member of the Problem Collective since 2016. Works with installations, graphics and video. Explores themes of history and memory.

Uladzimir Hramovich sees materials such as concrete, granite, metal, paper and paint not just as surfaces that history leaves its imprint on but as agents that themselves deform history. In his artistic practice, Hramovich draws on the history of modernist art and architecture, the history of ideology and political movements, and the transformation of the urban space in Minsk. He is interested in the tension between the past and the present and studies monuments and rituals of memory that are overloaded with ideological meanings and embodied in material objects.

Project info

I am going to continue working on the project "Salt Sellers" - a project about the connection between history, art history and mining on the example of Belaruskali (the only mining industry in Belarus that produces potassium to fertilize the land).
As part of the project I am going to make objects and videos as well as texts. As a result of the residency, I am planning an exhibition or presentation. There are plans to do a joint collaboration with artist Lesia Pchelka.
