COASTAL SIGNS, 2019
Installation, paper, cardboard, acrylic, pastel, wood
the Pier Art Centre, Stromness, Orkney, Scotland.
as part of SWAP: UK/Ukraine residency
During my residency at the Pier Art Centre, I studied the language of the local communities, where I have tried to unpack visual codes, starting from everyday images, as well as objects seen in museums that attracted me, to merge history and modernity. Some things I saw on the street, these images become decoration in the exhibition space, a layout. I decided to visualise these invisible threads, the relationship of human and nature, the subject and the environment in which it is located. It seems to me in such a bundle, the space around things is ignited. This is an invitation for the viewer to review their own environment, how it is perceived and it is possible to cause that feeling of surprise that makes you see something for which you were not looking.
