Pastime Paradise. Christina Solomukha
12 April 2008 - 11 May 2008

With her first solo exhibition in Ukraine Christina Solomukha presents a series of new pieces, including installations DiscoBaba, ReadyMade, DogHouse, and Sunrise. The young artist combines model, water-color, installation, and sculpture to manifest her humoristic treatment of architecture that reflects ideological and utopian contradictions, as well as the controversial urbanist space.

Absorbing the reality through her experience and memory, Christina creates her own landscape, a sort of mix of aesthetic pop-post and kitsch made of her reminiscences of Ukraine and new sensations. Blending the controversial reality with shape, for example, embroidery with a customs van in Odessa, or a snowman with mirror-like balls she revivifies our everyday environment steering clear of whatever stereotypes. Christina Solomukha, the Ukrainian artist who lives in France, has created her bitter-sweet world full of irony and nostalgia to show the viewers into unique creative images. Humor, exaggeration, and hybridization are the main tools to lift the reality to appropriate level in order to find in its shortcomings possible ways for new utopias.
