Steppes of dreamers. Ukrainian pavilion at the 53 Venice Biennale

The focus of the exhibition – installations at the Palazzo Papadopoli and the large billboard at Academic Bridge – is based on a fictional story created by artists Illya Chichkan and Mihara Yasuhiro and influenced by the surreal cinema work of Kira Muratova. In their story, Nicolo Papadopoli – the mid-19th Century owner of the palazzo - travels to Ukraine, Mongolia and China, finally reaching the Sea of Japan, retracing Marco Polo's journey. The exhibition is in essence a film set, containing all of the components of a film – script, props, lights and music. But, there will be no film.

A poem about an inland sea. Ukrainian pavilion at the 52 Venice Biennale

Project including artists from Ukraine, United Kingdom and United States demonstrates the artists' cohesive vision and their commitment to exploring new and active roles for the artists in society. The exhibition plans on raising questions such as the important Ukrainian film director Alexander Dovzhenko did in the script for "Poem about an Inland Sea" and throughout his career - what is it to be Ukrainian? Who are the Ukrainian people? Where are the Ukrainian people?
