Masha Ryskin and Serge Marchetta have been collaborating for the past thirteen years. Their collaborations consist of installations, mixed media, and video work. The collaborative practice stems from investigations on memory, a sense of place, and displacement.  Ryskin and Marchetta are interested in the memory of place evidenced by traces of presence in landscapes, both urban and rural. In their video work, they explore subtle shifts in movement occurring in space over time. Their most recent line of inquiry deals with relationships between place, history, and identity.

At the Chazan Gallery, Ryskin and Marchetta will present MEMORIES, a collaborative mixed media installation.

Masha Ryskin and Serge Marchetta met at a residency in France and have been collaborating since 2010. Their collaborations have been exhibited throughout the United States, in Montreal, Quebec, Finland, Norway, Slovakia, Italy, the Netherlands, and Israel. Most recently, their exhibition was reviewed in Art New England. Their work is in the public collections of Maison de la Culture Maisonneuve in Montreal and at Sami Shimoon College of Engineering in Beersheva, Israel.

Masha Ryskin is a multidisciplinary artist from the Former Soviet Union. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and has been reviewed in various publications including The New York Times. She holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from University of Michigan. Ryskin is a recipient of numerous awards, including Rhode Awards – a junior fellowship to Norway in 1998 and a Senior Scholar Award to Israel in 2022.

A graduate of Université du Québec à Montréal after 18 years working at Post Canada, Serge Marchetta has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Montreal, the Province of Québec, Europe and United States. He is a recipient of grants from Fondation Ténot, France, Le CALC, and Société de Développement des Entreprises Culturelles du Québec.
