This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom

Ausstellung 23 April − 27 November 2022
As part of the 59th Venice Biennale, "Milk of Dreams" presents an exhibition "This is Ukraine: Defending Freedom.".

The first part of the exhibition features monumental works by three artists who continue to live and work in Ukraine (Evgeniya Belorusets, Nikita Kadan and Lesia Khomenko), as well as works by recognized classics: Maria Primachenko, Tatiana Yablonskaya and Stefan Meditsky. Visitors will see the work of Kharkiv artist Pavel Makov "Fountain of Exhaustion: Visoka Voda" ("Fountain of Exhaustion: High Water"). This is a kinetic sculpture of a fountain in which water gradually descends through a cascade of 78 copper funnels arranged in a triangle shape, symbolizing the exhaustion of resources and humanity.

In the second - international - part of the exhibition you can see, for example, the work of Marina Abramovic "Count On Us", which was created in 2003 and is related to the events of the Balkan Spring, a new work of Damien Hirst "Sky Over Corn Field" and a canvas of the French artist JR, which appeared on the cover of Time magazine.
