All my conscious life is connected with art: art school, college and academy. Revolution 2013 gave me a new impetus, a clear vision of surrounding reality and a resistless need to speak out on the actual topics. All my projects are focused on complex social and political processes taking place in the society and the country. During Maidan, I realized destruction as a method of creation. This is what is happening now in Ukraine and what in fact any revolution is. From that time I started my experiments with fire in my practice â€“ â€ścreation through destructionâ€ť. For me, the material is secondary. The idea is always primary. Most of my works are created in the genre of installation. There are also photo and video projects. Foremost, I am interested in creating art to become a substantive and topical statement. I'm interested in different states of society. In my art practice I work with social injuries, the themes of death, memory, pain, migration and deportation. I must say that Ukrainian artist today can create a really sincere project about death and war. The war theme hasnâ€™t existed in my art before. Today I directly or indirectly address this issue in all my works.
