http://pinchukartcentre.org Anna Zvyagintseva Wins the Main Award of the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/32400 news Wed, 18 Apr 2018 09:14:18 +0300 Anna Zvyagintseva is the main prize winner of the 5th edition of the PinchukArtCentre Prize, a nationwide prize for Ukrainian artists aged 35 or younger. She was awarded UAH 250 000 (approx. $ 10 000 USD) and one month residency at a studio of an internationally renowned artist. Additionally, Anna Zvyagintseva is automatically included in the shortlist of the Future Generation Art Prize 2019 – a worldwide contemporary art prize.

Mykola Karabinovych received the first special prize. Group Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey was awarded with the second special prize. Besides UAH 60 000 ($ 2300 USD), the PinchukArtCentre will also offer one month international studio residence for each winner.

The winners were selected and announced at the award ceremony in Kyiv by a distinguished international jury consisting of Bjorn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre; Zhanna Kadyrova, artist; Alicia Knock, curator of the Center Pompidou; Viktor Misiano, curator, editor-in-chief of the edition “Artistic magazine”; Daniel Muzyczuk, curator of the Muzeum Sztuki.

Introducing Anna Zvyagintseva, the winner of the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018, the jury stated: “Anna Zvyagintseva captured the attention of the jury through a well-refined and precise formal language. In a very discrete way, her poetics unravel an understated political dimension to the viewer. She defines drawing as a form of open writing that expands into sculpture and space. Her method records the movement of bodies and draws from the everyday, both personal and collective. We recognize her consistent practice and thoughtful artistic potential.”

Commenting on works by the first special prize Mykola Karabinovych, the jurors said: “The jury was struck by the outstanding work by Mykola Karabinovych. We recognize its minimal and simple formulation that contradicts the complexity of a historical and yet intimate narrative. It is a dedicated performative gesture turned into a humble transient monument occupying the memory of the repressed, regardless of their ethnicity or nationality.”

Awarding Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey, the second special prize, the jury stated: “We recognize the seductive professional visual language of the film by Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey. It captures real people in a daily situation with a particular eye for detail, slowly enticing the viewers into a surprising experience with an unexpected twist that takes them from reality to the threshold of the sublime.”

The public choice prize of UAH 25 000 (approx. $ 1000 USD) was awarded to Alina Kleitman for her work “Ask A Mom.” The winner of this nomination was chosen based on the results of voting by the PinchukArtCentre visitors held from February 22 to April 15, 2018.

The 20 nominees for the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 were shortlisted by an independent selection committee from more than 650 applicants and include: Mykhailo Alekseienko (27, Kyiv), Iuliana Golub (27, Kharkiv), Taras Kamennoi (32, Kharkiv), Mykola Karabinovych (29, Odessa), Pavlo Khailo (29, Lugansk/Kyiv), Alina Kleitman (26, Kharkiv), Vitalii Kokhan (30, Sumy/Kharkiv), Yulia Krivich (29, Dnipro), Sasha Kurmaz (30, Kyiv), Larion Lozovyi (29, Kyiv), Roman Mikhaylov (28, Kharkiv/Kyiv), Oleg Perkowsky (33, Kamianets-Podilskyi/Lviv), Sergii Radkevych (30, Lutsk/Lviv), Yevgen Samborsky (33, Ivano-Frankivsk/Kyiv), Dmytro Starusiev (32, Makiivka), Ivan Svitlychnyi (28, Kharkiv/Kyiv), Kateryna Yermolaeva (32, Donetsk/Kyiv), Anna Zvyagintseva (30, Dnipro/Kyiv) and groups: Yarema Malashchuk (24, Kolomiya/Kyiv) and Roman Himey (25, Kolomiya/Kyiv), Revkovskiy and Rachinskiy (Daniil Revkovskiy, 24, Kharkiv; Andrij Novikov, 27, Kharkiv).

Open Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 until 21:00
Admission is Free

The PinchukArtCentre (Kyiv, Ukraine) presents the 1st solo exhibition in Eastern Europe by Dineo Seshee Bopape (South Africa), the Main Prize Winner of the 4th edition of the Future Generation Art Prize. The show includes a major soil installation specially produced for the PinchukArtCentre. 

The new monumental earth piece reminds, in form, of ancient spiritual places and draws upon traditional fertility iconography. Ukrainian soil is used in a systematic formal transformation. The earth moves from suggesting human architectural construction into the natural flow of a topographical landscape, evoking the lost presence of water, to finally glide into a quiet bed of soil. On top of that Bopape plays with herbs, crystals, clay, gold-leaf and special collected samples of earth coming from a dozen of spiritual places around the world. The Ukrainian Soil becomes a host for synergies of signs, beliefs, energies and materials for which our language lacks an essential vocabulary.

Soil is solid. It grounds and gives a sense of belonging. It is strongly political. It defines a sense of nationhood and identity. At the same time it remains seemingly still and neutral. However, in the work of Bopape, soil becomes a river. It expands from politics towards spirituality (or from spirituality through politics), reclaiming and re-discovering lost traditions and globally marginalized believe systems. 

Bjorn Geldhof, curator of the exhibition and artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre: We continue a beautiful tradition of presenting the winner of the Future Generation Art Prize with a solo exhibition at the PinchukArtCentre. Dineo Seshee Bopape has expanded the workgroup for which she was awarded the prize in Kyiv in 2017 with a new monumental earthwork. Her use of Ukrainian soil enables the viewers to experience soil in a completely different way. Not only is it a political narrative, but it also manifests as a source of energy and feeling.” 

Dineo Seshee Bopape was awarded the Main Prize of the fourth edition of the Future Generation Art Prize for her earth sculpture made of rich black local Ukrainian soil that acts as a platform for objects, organic forms and geological fragments that represent actions and symbols. Her art works were presented as a part of “The Future Generation Art Prize @ Venice 2017” exhibition - an official Collateral Event of the 57th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia organised by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre.

The exhibition will be open from February 24 until May 13, 2018 in the PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv, Ukraine. Opening hours: from Tuesday through Sunday from 12 noon to 9 pm. Admission is free.

Future Generation Art Prize is a major international art prize for artists younger than 35. Established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation to discover and provide long-term support for a generation of emerging artists, wherever they may live and work, this unique artist-focused prize aims to make a major contribution toward the production of new work by young artists.

Dineo Seshee Bopape was born in 1981, on a Sunday. If she were ghanain, her name would be akosua/akos for short. During the same year of her birth, the Brixton riots took place; two people were injured when a bomb exploded in a Durban shopping center; bobby sands dies; 100 were killed during riots in Cassablanca; mtv is launched; the boeing 767 makes its first airflight; umkonto we sizwe performs numerous underground assaults against the apartheid state. princess Di’ of Britain marries charles; bob Marley dies; apartheid SA invades Angola;  AIDS is identified/ created/named; salman rushdie releases his book “midnight’s children”; Winnie mandela’s banishment orders are renewed for another 5 years; in the region of her birth- her paternal grandmother dies affected by dementia; people cried and people laughed... The world’s population was at around 4.529 billion... today she(bopape) is 1 amongst 7 billion - occupying multiple intersecting adjectives.

The exhibition brings together a group of artists from an unprecedented variety of regions, coming from all over Ukraine including artists living abroad. The range of subjects in the exhibition is wide. Some artists deal with socio-political narratives of Ukraine as a country in conflict and the impact on its people. Others draw from self-exploration through the use of material, form and media. A third common subject in some of the shortlisted positions is the search towards future and the constructions of utopias.

Bjorn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre: “With the 5th edition, we celebrate 10 years of the PinchukArtCentre Prize supporting and enabling a new generation of Ukrainian artists. After so many years, having welcomed so many artists, I can only be proud to observe a radically new generation of artists coming to the art scene. Their concerns, language, and subjects are different; they announce a new way of thinking and a new way of showing what Ukrainian art could be for the future.”

The exhibition of the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 is curated by Tatiana Kochubinska, PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform curator.

http://pinchukartcentre.org Victor Pinchuk Foundation Presents Works by the Ukrainian Artist Anna Zvyagintseva in the Ukraine House Davos http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/32071 news Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:36:50 +0200 The Victor Pinchuk Foundation presents works by Anna Zvyagintseva at the Ukraine House Davos during the 48th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF). This is the first time when the Ukrainian contemporary art is demonstrated on occasion of WEF with the aim to highlight the vibrant, energetic European country and society that is Ukraine and to showcase Ukraine to global leaders from business, politics and civil society.  

Anna Zvyagintseva is the young Ukrainian artist, the winner of the special prize and public choice of the nationwide PinchukArtCentre Prize in 2015. Her works presented in Ukraine House are directly connected to important topics and challenges Ukraine is facing today.

“Paths” consists of a series of drawings and a small video tracing the interrupted line of walking on different paths. The drawing suggests a pattern of searching and a movement forward. The goal of the movement remains a mystery. But very much like Ukraine today, the movement and the systematic search for a way forward (or home) is essential. The works suggests this not as a singular line or through clear directions but rather offers a multitude of ways which each in their own right, offer different possibilities and opportunities.  

In the series of “Order of Things” work Zvyagintseva has investigated Ukrainian traditions and values with a keen sense of subjects close to women. Her interest in the line of a pencil, it’s simplicity and yet its limitless capacity of suggestion has resulted in a nearly endless amount of small scale drawings depicting daily life of women in Ukraine. The series “Order of Things”, transforms some of those drawings into incomplete, monumental wall works made from bar reinforcements and metal wire. While transforming the pencil line into a hard industrial building material, Zvyagintseva accentuates the industrial transformation of Ukraine resulting in loss of its traditions but offering a capacity of change.  

Ukraine House operates January 22-26, 2018 in Davos and is organized by the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA) in partnership with Victor Pinchuk Foundation and Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF).

Teta Tsybulnyk, the 86 film and urbanism festival programme coordinator, has curated the programme.

Film screenings will take place every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at the art centre’s 6th floor, in the video lounge. Participation is free. Registration is necessary.

In soviet type societies, rules and guidelines that determine proper models of behaviour are peremptory, and are imposed through the totality of the public and private dimensions. Instead, in capitalist systems that are individualism oriented and free of clear behavioural guidelines, a man has to counter uncertainty by developing rules and routines that regulate his life. An answer to the question “How to live?” that arises in the suggested films is a dynamic struggle between collective and individual, between an ephemeral configuration of the social and political system and an endless attempt of a man to find himself in it .

The exhibition explores the period of anomie that Ukrainian society was plunged into after the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991), and that it languishes in to this day. In essence, within the context of the exhibition, “anonymous society” is a metaphor for the absence of society as such. Individuals had inherited distrust for discredited authorities, yet, driven by inertia, continue to live under the unseen gaze of the Big Brother. The exhibition seeks to discover the “I” and make it manifest. It foregrounds individuality, making its voice heard in the anonymous field of the deformed social and political reality, within the sphere of personal memories and subjective experiences.

Screening of Samariy Zenikin’s film "Shinov and others", 1967

Teta Tsybulnyk was born in Kyiv in 1987. She studied sociology and social anthropology at the Central European University (Budapest). Since 2015, she has been working as programme coordinator at 86 film and urbanism festival. She is the co-founder of the film alliance ruïns collective and producer of independent films.

With the aim to generate a living archive of Ukrainian contemporary art from the early 80ties till present, Research Platform visualizes the results of its work through constant exhibition practice.

http://pinchukartcentre.org PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform Presents Two New Exhibitions: “Anonymous Society” and “Misplaced Touches” by Anna Zvyagintseva http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/31890 news Fri, 27 Oct 2017 06:29:44 +0300 The Research Platform of the PinchukArtCentre presents two exhibitions “Anonymous Society” and “Misplaced Touches” by Anna Zvyagintseva. With the aim to generate a living archive of Ukrainian contemporary art from the early 80ties till present, Research Platform visualizes the results of its work through constant exhibition practice.

“Anonymous Society” features works by Sergei Anufriev, Yevgenia Belorusets, Sergey Bratkov, Oleksandr Chekmenev, Oksana Chepelyk, Zhanna Kadyrova, Victor Palmov, Evgeny Pavlov, Serhiy Popov, Kirill Protsenko, Roman Pyatkovka, Larisa Rezun-Zvezdochetova, Oleksandr Roitburd, Vasyl Tsagolov, Leonid Voitsekhov.

The exhibition explores the period of anomie that Ukrainian society was plunged into after the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991), and that it languishes in to this day. The term “anomie,” coined by the French sociologist Émile Durkheim, describes a crisis-ridden transition period societies land in after political turmoil and changes in values when “the old gods are aging or are already dead, and others are not yet born.”

These situations when new behavioural paradigms are not yet formed raise the question of the role of inpiduals, their destructive potential and desire to make their voices heard, or to remain voiceless.

The performance of the Odessa-based artist Leonid Voitsekhov, entitled “They’ll Settle the Score With Us for It” (1984), marked the starting point of the exhibition. The performers carried a poster with this slogan through Odessa streets as a reaction to a disaster that left the city without power and water supply. When the police detained the performers and asked who the “they” of the poster might be, the artists replied, “The elemental forces.” Within the context of the exhibition, this gesture denotes the metaphorical pision of society into two opposite forces: us and them.

The exhibition consists of several chapters. The first addresses inpidual existence within the ideological standoff, from the emergence of heroes to their gradual devaluation; existence among double standards; and inpiduals evolving against the backdrop of changing political scenery. Chapter 2 treats self-awareness, inner struggle, collective memories and experiences. The last chapter deals with intimate physical experiences; addressing them is a manifestation of resistance against control over private lives.

In essence, within the context of the exhibition, “anonymous society” is a metaphor for the absence of society as such. Inpiduals had inherited distrust for discredited authorities, yet, driven by inertia, continue to live under the unseen gaze of the Big Brother. The exhibition seeks to discover the “I” and make it manifest. It foregrounds inpiduality, making its voice heard in the anonymous field of the deformed social and political reality, within the sphere of personal memories and subjective experiences.

РАС-UA: “Misplaced Touches”

PAC-UA presents the 6th project - a solo exhibition by Anna Zvyagintseva. “Misplaced Touches” is based on the idea of a trail, a trace, unconsciously following somebody else’s path, and paths that emerge from our imperceptible touches. In her works, the artist often makes manifest imperceptible, impalpable facets of our lives, showcasing their fragility and documenting elusive intangible moments.

“Misplaced Touches” features sculpture, graphic art, installations and animation, as well as found photographs of imperceptible touches in public and private life, from maternal to civic, discovered on social media. These ostensibly abstract works document and highlight elusive but physically lingering touches that exist on the plain of sensuous experience. The artist transforms this experience through the lens of various art media.

The monumental installation is based on a found photograph. The artist seems to anonymize the bodies, discarding their volume. The installation’s line connects the two exhibition spaces, turning into a line of contact, a metaphor for one territory’s or one body’s infringement on the other. The artist anonymizes these territories, stripping them of physical dimensions. The line remains a visible boundary for the act of infringement/touch, leaving the possibility of memory and memory traces of physical interactions.

Anna Zviagintseva was born in 1986 in Dnipropetrovsk. She lives and works in Kyiv. She graduated from the National Academy for fine Arts and Architecture in Kyiv, Easel Painting Section. Member of the Hudrada curator group, co-editor of Prostory.net.ua online publication on art, letters and translation. Shortlisted artist of the MUHi 2010 young Ukrainian artists contest and the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2013. Winner of the special prize and of the Public Choice Prize under the PinchukArtCentre 2015 contest. In 2015, she represented the National Ukrainian Pavilion at the 56th Biennale di Venezia as part of the group exhibition “Hope”.

Curator of the both exhibitions is Tatiana Kochubinska.

<![CDATA[Marina Abramovic to Give Public Lecture at the Invitation of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation]]> http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/31624 Marina Abramovic will give a public lecture “Artist Body / Public Body” at the invitation of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation

]]>
http://pinchukartcentre.org Marina Abramovic to Give Public Lecture at the Invitation of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/31624 news Tue, 05 Sep 2017 12:58:49 +0300 On September 16, at 16:00 artist Marina Abramovic will give a public lecture “Artist Body / Public Body” at the invitation of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation. The event is organized to coincide with the 14th YES Annual Meeting in Kyiv, Ukraine and will launch the public program accompanying the PinchukArtCentre’s “Fragile State” exhibition

The lecture will take place at October Palace (Institutska St. 1). 

Since the beginning of her career in early 1970’s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance art, using the body and duration as her subject and medium. She founded Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI), now traveling institute for immaterial and durational work among all fields. In this public lecture, she will illustrate the development of the Abramovic Method as a collective experience designed for the public to connect with each other and themselves and will then present an emerging generation of performance artists from two recent MAI projects.

Fragility serves as the conceptual basis of the exhibition, reflecting a delicate state of vulnerability. This is the most salient characterization of today’s world. The term “Fragile State” is a reflection on the fragile state of the world order, and more abstractly, it refers to ideological, cultural and social vulnerability. At the same time, the concept of fragility relates to every individual personally, when it is about vulnerability of one’s body, state of mind and consciousness.  

The public program, along with the exhibition, will explore various interpretations and definitions of the concept in a series of events. Every event will examine various aspects of fragility: social, cultural, historical, philosophical and psychological. Indeed, according to many theories, fragility is a fundamental characterization for both people and states, profoundly private and political at the same time.

From September to October 2017, the program will feature lectures by prominent Ukrainian and international academicians, public figures, researchers and experts.  

Participation is free. Seating is limited. To take part in the lecture on September 16, please register here. Media are kindly asked to fill in the accreditation form here

About Marina Abramovic 

Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance as a visual art form, creating some of the most important early works. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring her physical and mental limits in works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life, she has withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. Marina Abramovic has presented her work at major institutions in the US and Europe, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 1990; Guggenheim Museum, New York, 2005; Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2010; Serpentine Gallery, London, 2014, etc. She has also participated in many large-scale international exhibitions including the Venice Biennale (1976 and 1997) and Documenta VI, VII and IX, Kassel (1977, 1982 and 1992). Abramovic was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale for the video installation and performance “Balkan Baroque.”

The exhibition “Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia” is focused on one of the sides of the multifaceted creative work of artist Fedir Tetyanych whose artistic practice encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, text, performance etc. In contrast to the “trash aesthetics”, the exhibition makes an attempt to conceptualise the artist’s practice by reflecting on his texts and presenting them as a self-sufficient medium and an integral part of his artistic oeuvre.

http://pinchukartcentre.org The PinchukArtCentre is proud to present “Fragile State” - a major international group exhibition http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/31334 news Thu, 15 Jun 2017 00:24:00 +0300 The PinchukArtCentre is proud to present “Fragile State” - a major international group exhibition with 10 leading artists including Marina Abramovic, Jan Fabre, Urs Fischer, Douglas Gordon, Damien Hirst, Carlos Motta, Oscar Murillo, Santiago Sierra, Barthelemy Toguo and Ai Weiwei.

A Fragile State often reveals a delicate moment of vulnerability and might be an accurate description of the world around us. The notion of Fragile State reflects upon the fragile state of the world order, or in a more abstract sense it refers to ideological, cultural and social vulnerabilities. But it is equally a notion that can be understood in a deeply personal sense, the fragility of body and mind. 

This exhibition meanders systematically in between those different definitions of the Fragile State. It provokes conversations linking the fragility of our body and mind, and the fragility of ideologies and historical understandings. It draws parallels between the fragility of youth and that of a country at war conflict or the fragility of life and that of a State at risk. 

The exhibition starts with a reflection on culture, civilization and history, embodied in Ai Weiwei’s LEGO version of Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn (2016). The work is a recent translation of the early 1995 images where Ai Weiwei photographed himself dropping and breaking a 2000-year-old ceremonial Urn from the Han Dynasty (considered a golden Age in Chinese history). Responding to public outcry, he famously replied: ”General Mao used to tell us that we can only build a new world if we destroy the old one”. That thought is reinforced by Carlos Motta's work, Colonial Forts #10 (2013). The artist traced back the architectural remains of the first colonists of Latin America who in their conquest of a continent destroyed entire civilizations. This theme continues in various forms throughout the exhibition and comes full circle with Douglas Gordon's work, The End of Civilisation (2012). The work shows a grand piano being burned in the panorama of the Scottish border with England, alongside Hadrian's Wall. His work is both meaningful in historical terms, reminiscent of Roman civilization ending right there at Hadrian's wall, and in a contemporary political sense, provoking a thinking on what this border means for England and Scotland today. 

The fragility of States, as a political understanding, runs in a historic sense through all the above-mentioned works. The works by Santiago Sierra address this understanding today. In 2012, he made Burned Word (2012) in Valencia (Spain). It shows a monumental word, “Future”, constructed in front of a poor looking apartment complex. The word is set on fire and burns to the ground. This took place at the height of the Financial Crisis in Spain, a moment when the state was no longer capable of supporting its own financial sector and received a financial bailout of more than 100 billion euros from the EU. At the same time, support for an independent Catalonia increased dramatically. Sierra's second work called Veterans of war facing the corner continues a series of performances he has staged since 2011, inviting war veterans from historical conflicts to simply stand in a corner with their backs to the viewer for a period of time. The performance emphasizes the soldier as a worker in the industry of war. It critically questions his or her social position once they can no longer fight or work, while investigating the relationship between power and guilt. For the first time, Sierra is not working with veterans from a cold conflict, but with those who fought in Donbas, in eastern Ukraine, in a conflict that is still ongoing. Bringing a veteran of a still-ongoing conflict into the gallery provokes a confrontation with reality. It provokes thoughts on the veteran and his or her relationship to the political powers that need to bring this conflict to an end.

Veterans of war facing the corner speaks not only about a political state but also about personal fragility. This is a subject that is addressed very differently in Oscar Murillo's work Frequencies (2013 – ongoing), a series of 28 canvases made with collaboration of children from all over the world. The works are a part of a long-term project where Murillo attaches canvases to the desks of schoolchildren aged 10 to 16 years. The drawings capture a portrait of concerns, thoughts, fears, hopes and the imagination of a future generation. They move between the personal and political, representing a fragile moment in a young person's life, a moment of openness and a view towards the future. 

Urs Fischer also addresses personal fragility, but his subject draws from the ordinary and daily life with works like Internal Weather (2000), Chair for a Ghost: Urs (2003). His wax candle sculpture Untitled (2011) depicts the artist sitting at a table with a bottle of wine, slowly melting away through the course of the exhibition. This traditional Memento Mori represents the body in decay and stands in conversation with Overcome the Virus! (2016) by Barthélémy Toguo. His eight hand-painted vases are inspired by research into the HIV and Ebola viruses. Toguo explains the vases as larger than a human being, symbolizing our relationship to water, being both purifying and a possible source of contaminations. It expands the body's fragility to the world around us, to nature and life itself, echoed in the work of Damien Hirst, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow (2008).  

The final chapter of the exhibition is Marina Abramovic's Generator (2014/2017). The artist invites the public to experience their body, their mind and the space surrounding them, completely deprived of any sense of hearing or sight. It brings the notion of Fragile State onto the viewer’s body and mind, placing them in a position of vulnerability while concentrating on a central notion in Abramovic’s work: “nothingness”. As she said: “The hardest thing is to do something which is close to nothing.”

http://pinchukartcentre.org PinchukArtCentre’s Research Platform presents three new exhibitions: “Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia”, “Motherland on Fire”, and “Versus” http://pinchukartcentre.org/en/news/31333 news Wed, 14 Jun 2017 22:38:28 +0300 The Research Platform of the PinchukArtCentre presents three exhibitions “Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia”, “Motherland on Fire”, and “Versus”. The aim of the Research Platform is to generate a living archive of Ukrainian contemporary Art from the early 80ties till present. The exhibition practice of the Research Platform develops and displays three main directions: exhibitions drawn from the research activities; a presentation of the PinchukArtCentre’s Collection; “PAC-UA Reconsideration”, investment in new production of young artists. 

“Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia”

17.06.2017 – 08.10.2017

The exhibition “Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia” is focused on one of the sides of the multifaceted creative work of artist Fedir Tetyanych whose artistic practice encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, text, performance etc. 

Being part of the Union of Artists, Tetyanych was involved in carrying out official orders for monumental order, but at the same time, his personality, behaviour and artistic practice were an alternative to the official Soviet culture. Tetyanych was among the pioneers of the performance genre in the Ukrainian art: he is mostly famous for his odd-looking costumes and objects of trash and found materials. The artist used oftentimes foil or cans or other materials for his costumes that produced a certain sound when in motion. He put those costumes on in public spaces, including the premises of the Union of Artists, which gave him the reputation of a town freak who was proclaiming his own “eternity” and “infinity”: “I am Boundlessness”. These are the categories of eternity, infinity, and boundlessness served as the base for his philosophical and artistic doctrine: Fripulia. 

In contrast to the “trash aesthetics”, the exhibition “Fedir Tetyanych. Canon Fripulia” makes an attempt to conceptualise the artist’s practice by reflecting on his texts and presenting them as a self-sufficient medium and an integral part of his artistic oeuvre. Another element to Fedir Tetyanych’s universe - which is no less important – is the Biotechnosphere: an all-purpose module to accommodate and mobilize a human. Its genesis should be sought for in utopian visions of Leonardo da Vinci, Nikolay Fedorov or Vladimir Tatlin: what differs Tetyanych from his predecessors is mostly introduction of number attributes to his philosophic system that are typical for the era of cybernetics and achievements in space. In 1980s and 1990s, the artist built about five Biotechnospheres; none of them has been preserved. By implementing a reconstruction of two of them, based on drawings (one at scale 1 to 3 and the other life size), the curators sought to create perfect, almost serial production samples their author could be only dreaming of.

“Motherland on Fire” 

Intervention by Concrete Dates Collective

17.06.2017 – 08.10.2017

The exhibition “Motherland on Fire” offers one of views on the history of the Ukrainian society in the 1990s, narrated through a prism of selected works from the PinchukArtCentre collection. The title of the exhibition alludes to the film by Oleksandr Dovzhenko “Ukraine in Flames” which tells about the bloodshed that took place on the Ukrainian territory during World War II. However, the works presented in the exhibition do not relate in any way to military operations or the real frontline.

Flames in this case are a metaphor for the insecurity, trauma or conflict that the society felt already in the 1990s and that are reflected in the overall social instability, economic crisis, bad working conditions etc. 

The exhibition features works by Serhiy Bratkov, Volodymyr Kozhukhar, Eduard Kolodiy, Mykola Matsenko, Boris Mikhailov, Georgiy Senchenko, Illia Chichkan and group Peppers (Oleg Petrenko and Liudmyla Skrypkina). These works are linked by reflection on life after a technogenic catastrophe and perception of life during the first years of the post-Soviet Ukraine. Exposed together, these selected works outline the social and economic transition area that is marked in the collective consciousness as a “diagnosis” of the 1990s. 

Concrete Dates Collective group that works with commemoration practices and archiving, and engages in performative research, has been invited to take part in the exhibition. The artists have been suggested to reflect on the themes touched upon in the exhibition through a series of interventions.

Concrete Dates Collective emerged in spring 2015 as a group of artists working with various commemoration practices. By giving a special importance to archival materials and historic marginalia, CDC seeks to understand more profoundly public celebrations and festive events and their role in ideological narratives and life experience. 

Curator: Tatiana Kochubinska

PAC-UA Reconsideration: “Versus”

17.06.2017 – 17.09.2017

PAC-UA Re-consideration presents the 5th project - a group exhibition including young artists Yulia Golub, Zina Isupova, Alina Kleytman, Aleksandr Kutovoy, Anna Rotayenko, Dmitry Starusyev. “Versus” is a result of a long-term cooperation of the invited curator Sergey Bratkov with the new generation of artists, students of The Rodchenko Art School (Moscow).

Versus is an inner debate that becomes the theme of reflection for the exhibition participants. Playing with the notion of dualism, they investigate the ambivalence of the artist as a personality and creator, the situation in between, an internal dispute, the border between the ethical and aesthetic. The exhibition displays the diversity of individual artistic practices, combining a collective view on the process of building a dialogue between the presented works.

Invited curator: Sergey Bratkov

Research Platform was launched by the PinchukArtCentre in 2016. It is an open platform for thinking, research and discourse that aims to generate a living archive of Ukrainian Art from the early 80ties till present. Accessible to all, the research platform is a pioneering project to preserve, catalogue and reconsider historical information that is crucial for critical reflection on Ukrainian identity today and tomorrow.
