2020 — Kyiv, Ukraine
About this series
This is the story of a construction site that has turned into a theatre and workers who have become actors. For a long time, I watched from my windows with sadness as a building emerged, day by day, next to mine. But after some time had passed, the building site next door became a source of interest and fun. I began to make the link between the construction and theater. Before my eyes, a theatrical performance unfolded, replete with decorations, lighting, sharp colors and actors playing their trade. This metamorphosis, taking place in my own mind, was a revelation. I believe positive things can be found everywhere and in everything.
I am a visual artist based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
