“It will be a talk about who are the young artists in Ukraine, which topics are they interested in, what questions they try to arise and which problems they face on the first steps of their career. I will show some works from the artists of my generation that I think can illustrate what is happening in the Ukrainian young art scene today.” (Text by courtesy of Olia Fedorova)

“Her research is based on the language phenomenon, gathered in its fragility. By means of a plurality of expressive means, numbers, graphic signs and symbols, the artist investigates the mechanisms of supply and reading of contents, their interpretation and retransmission and, at last, the role played by each person, group, or an entire community in the communication processes.” (Text by courtesy of Yuliya Say)
