Vasyl Tsagolov, the first edition of the new РАС-UA project
12 February 2011 - 17 April 2011

With its PAC-UA project, PinchukArtCentre presents a new special dynamic and flexible program line for Ukrainian artists imbedded in the collection platform. PAC-UA offers a window for new produced works of Ukrainian artists supporting the strong and long-term collaboration between the PinchukArtCentre and Ukrainian artists. PAC-UA will be presented in a special dedicated space on the 5th floor for a period of one month.

For the first edition of PAC-UA, Ukrainian artist Vasyl Tsagolov presents seven new paintings from the Fear Has Many Eyes series. The show includes a number of portraits related to an idea of paranoia which we find all over the world which is a result of the violence of terrorism. The artist also portrays different ballerinas, building a tension between nature, a male viewpoint and the stage.

Vasyl Tsagolov: “The idea of nature is in direct relation to the idea of the stage, although it is not always visible in this project. I find it important to paint the shadows of the ballerinas on the landscape. It is important to understand that the stage in our time is linked to the media, to television, which is a logical place for it. You have a translation of the visual television reality where we live. And at the same time the stage is the place where a translation is shown of things that are really happening”.

The exhibition on the 5th floor is open from February 12 to March 13. Open hours: from 12:00 to 21:00 from Tuesday through Sunday. Monday is off. Admission is free.
