ALMANAQUE-Fotográfica proudly presents two body of works of photography and video-art by Ricardo Nicolayevsky.  Post-produced throughout two decades, the pieces become the time-tunnel from a poetic production process transcending words. Still and moving image from a public and a private world captured 35 years ago —at a gone New York— are reborn in another time and place. Lost Photos & NYC’83 proposes a dialogue with a present that threatens freedom of speech and human rights in a new status-quo. A photography series with intimate and enigmatic images, while the NYC’83 is a video-art portrait where the public and the private realms melt on the streets of the city open to all possibilities. The Lost Photos series —experimental by nature— has been mounted in a classic style, so its narrative and poetry may mimics with abstraction and found fortune. The NYC’83 video-art portrait captures the Punk and New Wave spirit of a young Nicolayevsky recording the idyllic XX century’s Metropolis. Late in 2016, the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA) acquired the Lost Portraits series, to which NYC’83 belongs, a total portrait featuring its streets, inhabit tans and the author. Time is the prime material for these productions. As Nicolayevsky remarks in one of his aphorisms: “Es imposible matar el tiempo sin herirlo” (“It is impossible to kill time without hurting it”).

Ricardo Nicolayevsky

Mexico, 1961.
Lives and works in Mexico City.

 

 

In 1982 Nicolayevsky moved to NYC to study Film at NYU, where he obtained his BFA in 1986. In that same city, he studied music composition at The Julliard School (1989) and at The Music Center (1983-1989). Premiered his own piano compositions twice (1987 & 1988) at the Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, NYC. Since 1982 to this date, has finished more than 150 shorts on film and video, composed the music for them, as well as for other film projects and different theatre plays, TV programs and radio. Has also been involved in performance and cabaret.

In 2003, Nicolayevsky became a fellow of the Media Arts Program of the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation. In 2005, Centre Culturel La Clef, Paris, opened Nicolayevsky’s first retrospective show. In an event called An Evening with Ricardo Nicolayevsky in 2006, the artist presented a selection of film and video works at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. In 2009 Nicolayevsky’s work was shown in a retrospective show at the Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City. In 2010, the Mexican editorial Quimera ediciones published his book 300 Aphorisms by Ricardo Nicolayevsky. He has shown individually and collectively (more than 100 occasions in total) in universities, galleries, museums and festivals, in Mexico and around the world. Has offered conferences, has been member of the jury in prestigious festival and grants awards.

His film and video work –a hybrid between experimental and documentary– include a vast series of moving portraits, generally of artists from different generations and diverse cities. His collection entitled Lost Portraits, which dates from 1982-1985 (comprising Individual Portraits, Double Portraits and Group Portraits), has been awarded at film festival ́s circuits. These collections of portraits and additional works have been acquired by MoMA in New York City (2016)..

In 2013 the artist received the grant national Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte. From December 2015 to January 2016 Mexico City’s Centro de Cultural Digital showed the audiovisual work of Ricardo Nicolayevsky in a retrospective show. His audiovisual work has been acquired by Laboratorio Arte Alameda and MUAC (Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo) in Mexico City and recently by MoMA in New York City.

Nowadays, he resides in Mexico City where he works on his art, as well as a teacher. In October 2017, the “Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros” in Mexico City honored him with an individual show, covering work of the last 30 years. His work was also included, at MoMA in New York City, in the collective show: “Club 57: Film, Performance, and Arts in the East Village, 1978-1983”, started in 2017 October 31st .
