Born: 1986 Ukraine
Lives & works in: Ukraine
I began developing a new series, Roots, after the beginning of the Russian invasion on Ukraine.
The unfortunate event has awakened in Ukrainians some unknown code, everyone even in the most distant part of the world felt the call of their own land, their identity and their freedom. The work was created during the war and it speaks about spirit, the power of roots and the connection between us.
In Roots, I reflect on the self on another level, now as part of a community, and look for new associations of identity that will not be based solely on the concept of the nation. I offer new images of ideology based on fantasy, where I reveal about subconscious spiritual symbols and show how they are subtly sewn inside us.
