Inspired by the ideas of Rudolf Arnheim and Vladimir Zhukovskiy, Kazannik’s current series is a reflection on the potential of visual perception both for opening, but also for sublimating cognitive pathways — either stimulating thought processes and problem-solving — particularly for people with dyslexia or other forms of “word blindness”, or pushing linear ‘linguistic’ cognitions into non-verbal abstractions. Language presents its insolvency when confronted with complex, intuitive or gnostic perception,while images can continue to communicate. The power of images, open to individual subjectivity, to trigger the mind’s innate tendency to create, dependent on an individual’s identifications and conditioning, is the major theme of Kazannik’s current series.
