 Sergey Chilikov

Modern Russian photographer


Sergey Chilikov is one of the most  famous and "fashionable" photographers of modern Russia. "The philosopher among photographers and the photographer among philosophers", he is much spoken and written about, referred to as "the Russian response to Emir Kusturica" and the creator of "village glamour". For many years he has been exhibited in Russia and abroad, where he enjoys much greater interest in him. Strangely enough, Sergey Chilikov does not considers himself a photographer, saying that he has never been one and is presently moving less and less in that direction.
Sergey Chilikov was born in the village of Kilemary (Mari ASSR) in 1953. He graduated from the Mari Teacher Training Institute and is candidate of philosophical sciences. He taught at higher education institutions of Yoshkar-Ola from 1976 to 1991.
In 1993 the photographer had his book  on the Russian analytical philosophy "Artseg. The Owner of a Thing, or Onthology of Subjectivity". He has authored the pentalogue: "Artseg. Treatises on Mysterious Objects: The Treatise on Value (published in 1998), the Treatise on Morals, the Treatise on the Absolute, the Treatise about Attribute, the Treatise on Thinking".
Sergey Chilikov lives in Moscow and Yoshkar-Ola.
"The modern art dissects photography in all possible ways, so people have forgotten what a real photo made not like a painting or an object, but as a photo looks like. And they like it.
I actually consider modern photography to be inveterate and speaking gobbledygook. When a photographer invents a system of concepts, an intellectual frame, which does not relate to ordinary perception of me, the viewer, my reaction is simple: let him or her play…", - the philosopher says.
