Saša participated in many group, as well as solo shows internationally and locally. Saša Tkačenko’s work examines his attitude toward the social phenomena that affect the environment in which he works and lives. Starting from the visual manifestations, symbols and representations of the occurrences that he aims to understand and analyze by deploying the method of reduction of formal language, he translates the given phenomena into reduced images, simultaneously playing with their content and given meanings. Through sculpture, installation and video he then develops reduced visual settings in a tense dialogue with the space and creates situations for the observer to experience the uncertainties of his persistent reexaminations of symptoms that strongly affect his everyday realities.
