Gorsad Kiev is from Kiev, what a shocker right. Gorsad is an art collective of three individuals: Victor, Julian and Maria, who have known each other for quite some time now. They actually all studied together, and somewhere along the way realized that they are way too much alike to be working on their own, so they became Gorsad.
And why the name? Cuz if we translate Gorsad literally, it means “urban garden”, and there is a place in Odessa called City Garden that Victor, Julian and Maria are really fond of, and they associate with that place, because of some special story they all share. Picture/video wise, Gorsad likes to keep things simple, with a direct vision and purpose. Intriguing images with usually featured unusual characteristics are quite satisfying, if we talk about direct art taste and things we like. Or to put all this in more simple way: We like naked ladies.
HI GUYS AND A GIRL, HOW ARE YOU?
Hi! Everything is cool, thanks.
AS MENTIONED, GUYS AND A GIRL: VICTOR, JULIAN, AND MARIA, THE THREE OF YOU ARE GORSAD. HOW DOES THIS MÉNAGE À TROIS WORK?
Yes, GORSAD is a team of three. We are like-minded. What could be better than one head over three? We do not have personal responsibilities, we are interchangeable, it’s always impromptu.
DO YOU EVER CLASH WHILE WORKING OR EVERYTHING IS SMOOTH AS BUTTER WITH YOU GUYS?
Everything is smooth as butter. We always have fun.
YOUR MODELS, ARE BASICALLY RANDOM PEOPLE FROM THE STREETS. DO YOU JUST APPROACH THEM, WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE INTERESTING WITH A PLEA TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM, OR HOW DOES IT WORK?
If a person makes us feel the “correct” emotion, no matter what will be discussed – the appearance or behavior, it becomes our model.
HOW IS IT WORKING WITH SUCH A VARIETY OF PEOPLE?
All we need is a special approach. We never use people just like stuff. We communicate, we understand, we become friends. With all you can find a common language, important thing is to understand that each person is a personality.
SO MUCH RANDOM PEOPLE CAN EASILY EVOKE SOME WEIRD STUFF ON SET… DOES IT?
You know, we have become so accustomed to all sorts of oddities that we would have been surprised if there was something that could surprise us at this point.
WHEN DO YOU DECIDE THE MOOD FOR EACH SHOOT?
In fact, all depends on the situation and then we see how things go.
AND WHILE TALKING OF WHAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR ART, YOU GUYS ONCE SAID: ‘’TASTE OF YOUTH’’, IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN…
Yes, youth is energy in its purest form. And this is exactly what inspires us.
WHAT ABOUT SEXUALITY ON PICTURES? IT’S KIND OF A THIN LINE FROM ART TO SOMETHING TACKY.
Well, Sex is the art!
AND YOUR VIDEOS, YOU HAVE A FEW OF THOSE TOO… YOUR NEW THING?
Our videos as well as our photos are a transfer tool of things that we want to share with others.
OTHERWISE, WHAT ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU ARE INTO?
Ok, we love Whadeverism.
CAN WE ALSO DO A HI5? FIVE THINGS THAT GOT YOU MOST HIGH…
