Figures on white

Presentation - 12 december 2011, monday, 19.00

A short scene from the film by Alexander Dovzhenko "Shchors" formed a basis of “Figures on white”: Red Army striking at yet unseen enemy, crosses the empty snow-covered field. In paintings and graphic works, displayed at the exhibition, the white field becomes a symbol of transition state, timelessness, and hovering. On this field, one after another, crowds, police barriers, riots participants, the people idly spending time on the square appear.  Ukraine, its two post-Soviet decades, is the prolonged intersection of the white field with a half-forgotten "where from" and unclear "where to".
