Sergey Bratkov was born in 1960 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. In 1978 he graduated from The Kharkiv State School of Art; in 1983 – from The National Technical University of Kharkiv. In the 1970s, he got fascinated with photography and, in the 1980s, began experimenting, creating collages and objects. From 1988 to 1993, he was a part of the art group ‘Letter A’; he created the semi-figurative painting, participated in group exhibitions in Ukraine and Germany. In 1994-1997 he was a member of the Fast Reaction Group. As a part of the collective, Bratkov worked with such authors of provocative performances, objects, and photo series, as Boris and Victoria Mikhailov and Sergiy Solonsky.
Since 2000, he has been living in Moscow. His major mediums are photography, video, installation, painting, and performance. He also holds classes at the Rodchenko School of Multimedia and Photography and curates exhibitions.
Artworks by Bratkov raise questions of a broad sociocultural nature; they reflect the problems of society militarization, illiteracy, and adherence to the occult, they speak ironically about the pervasive consumerism and manipulative advertising.
The artist always maintains a balance between social orientation and the artistry of the idea: Bratkov never descends to current affairs. His artistic language is distinguished by paradox, visual power, and great poetry.
Bratkov is a participant of the Biennale in Sao Paulo (2002), Manifesta (2004), Venice Biennale (2003, 2007, 2011). He is an Innovation Prize winner in the main category Work of Visual Art (2009). The artworks by Bratkov were acquired by, among others, Multimedia Art Museum (Russia), Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (Belgium), Galician Centre of Contemporary Art (Spain), Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland), as well as by private collections in Russia and abroad.

Sergey BratkovWe are not here 25 Apr - 4 Sep 2018REGINA gallery is delighted to present a new exhibition of Sergey Bratkov «WE ARE NOT HERE». In the latest works Sergey Bratkov explores the poetic of the everyday: the man with all his weak points and shortcomings mixed with an unfading joy of life. WE ARE NOT HERE is a metaphor of contemporary real life here and now. Bratkov is always at the peak of social sentiments, rather often his ideas are ahead of his time.
Group exhibitionRehearsals of pleasure and other conditions 25 Oct - 6 Dec 2017REGINA Gellery presents the «Rehearsals of pleasure and other conditions» group exhibition, curated by Sergey Bratkov.
What stands behind works by a young artist? What will remain if we focus not on a commercial product, not on formal «searching for a new visuality» and not on a pre-built and emasculated structure of interaction of conceptual work with the viewer?
The living matter of the artist's everyday reality, unsightly for someone, somehow harsh, somehow personal, sentimental or emotional, has become the subject of the young artists’ statements.
Built according to the principle of rapid reaction art, the exhibition includes works and performances created here and now, without any predefined goal of a common utterance, but in an attempt to discover the point of internal struggle that hides behind the public manifestations of the process of art creation.
This is not an invitation to the workshop, but the citation of internal dialogues: with a medium, with institutions, with oneself and with society. This is the part of the work of artists that can not be sold.
