BIO:
I am an artist from Ukraine. In my work I focus on personal and collective traumas, constructs imposed by society and the Soviet legacy. My mediums are photography, collage, artbook and sound. Through my projects I try to express my disagreement with constructed stereotypes and imposed scripts.

I am talking about the traumatized post-Soviet society and about both physical and psychological ruins that people from post-Soviet countries are left to exist in.
