Multidisciplinary artist Sasha Kurmaz is the next ‘chef’ to feature in Cookbook magazine, outlining his selection of ‘ingredients’ that influence his work.
“Sasha Kurmaz is a juggler, he plays with an art halfway between ironic and poetic that always distances itself from a purely visual reading. In the pictures of this young photographer – born in 1986 in Kiev, just after the Chernobyl disaster – you will never find fiction translated in metaphor, the weak link of many mediocre artists now around. In them you will find heart and brains, that energy we ask from a work of art in order not to feel cheated.” – Maurizio Di Lorio
Taking inspiration from English royalty and Kings’ scandals of abdications to the art paint and costumes of Ainou and African tribes or even from their own experience of brotherhood, Valentin and Florentin Glémarec explored family, power games and a affiliation.
