Mark Chehodaiev (UA)

Residency: February - March 2022

Mark Chehodaiev (*1997, Kyiv) is a Ukrainian multimedia artist, who is currently studying in Vienna, Austria. In his artistic practice,  he works mainly with space and relationships in space, through which he develops his key themes of presence and memory. He is interested in how the general context coexists with personal experience and in his often performative projects he is collaborating with other artists or spectators.

Mark studied at the department of scenography and cinematography at the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture, and in 2019 he graduated from the contemporary art course at Kyiv Academy of Media Arts and started his artistic practice. From October 2021 he studies at Die Angewandte (Vienna) at the site-specific art department.

The residency is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council. The residency is organized in cooperation with Nazar Voitovich Art Residence.
