Welcome Emil Andreas Dollmeyer
As our co-founder and the main face Erik Sviatchenko has moved to Glasgow to win The Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title there, we had to find a new member of CUAP friends. And we did, even within a family. He is a baker with a passion for sourdough bread and his baker star quality continues with us at www.closeupandprivate.com.
SECRETLY. A Danish forest in Vienna
The idea to move Danish forest to another country brought Sergei Sviatchenko to MuseumsQuartier Wien - one of the world's largest contemporary cultural complexes.
"Secretly" is an installation in the public space. A forest has a historical memory, and is a geographical part of almost every place on Earth.
In this case, I have tried to replant a Danish forest from Viborg (the town where I live) into the middle of Vienna. A forest has always been a historical and geographical part of countries; it contains the past, the present, and the future; it influences our emotions, moods and lives.
I hope the images of a fantastic forest will enliven the spectator with positive emotions; stimulate the memory; create a balance with the forceful structure of the city; or wonder about the connection we still have with nature.
The project is curated by Elisabeth Hajek, art leder of Artist-in-Residence Programm, freiraum Q21 INTERNATIONAL.
Welcome William Erik Sviatchenko
There is another member of Close Up And Private friends – a very small member indeed – William Erik Sviatchenko. He lives in a large house in the middle of Glasgow with his parents and their dog Muffi.
Look what he has around him: a magic collage world created by his grandpa.
