On February 21, at 7PM, as part of the Armed and Dangerous project, the lecture Kateryna Yakovlenko will talk about the video experiments of Ukrainian artists and analyze some of the works. There will be a screening.
In the early 1990s, Ukrainian artists got their hands on video cameras, and they began to experiment with the genre. The Ukrainian artists were fascinated by the idea of working on the edge of visual art and cinema. In the early years of the decade, works were created that appealed to visual culture, the aesthetics of television and world cinema, as well as issues of documentation, truth and lies. One of the most striking examples of that time was Vasyl Tsagolov, who conceptualised his work as Solid Television.
Kateryna Yakovlenko is a member of the PinchukArtCentre Research Platform, a publicist, co-author of the PARCOMMUNE book. She contributes to the publications LB.ua and Bird in Flight.
