Documentary
'Petersburg places and paintings'
Director & producer Ben van Lieshout, 2004
In 2004 Dutch director Ben van Lieshout made an extensive film portrait of Tatyana Yassievich and her work in St. Petersburg, Amsterdam and Berlin. The film follows her as she travels between the cities, between the past and future, in a ceaseless effort to register what remains of Soviet esthetics in the public space, before it disappears entirely. The film takes viewers into public spaces still pervaded by the history of the Soviet era. They combine with Yassievich’s personal memories to create a tangible experience of the drastic, ongoing changes set in motion by the recent collapse of the Soviet Union.

Tatyana Yassievich was born in St. Petersburg in 1968. She finished the B. V. Joganson High School under the auspices of the Russian Art Academy. She then continued her studies on the Saint Petersburg Art and Industry Academy named after Alexander von Stieglitz. In 1991 she went as an exchange student to the Netherlands, where she completed her studies in painting at the Utrecht School of the Arts.

She then completed a post-academic course at 'Ateliers 63‘ in Amsterdam, where she developed her work under the supervision of renowned artists like Jan Dibbets, Ben Akkerman, Georg Herold, and others.

She has been working as an independent artist since 1994, participating in exhibitions in Europe and Russia. Since 1999 she has been represented by the Sabine Wachters Gallery in Brussels and Knokke, Belgium.

In 2004, Dutch film director Ben van Lieshout made a documentary film based on her work 'Petersburg Places and Paintings‘. The film portrays her life as an artist living and working in several cities at once: St. Petersburg, Berlin and Amsterdam.
