EMBracing the Ocean artist Lera Litvinova will open her exhibition “Renaissance” on August 26 at 17:00 at the Museum of Outstanding Figures of Ukrainian Culture (Lesya Ukrainka, Mykola Lysenko, Mykhailo Starytskyi, Panas Saksaganskyi) in Kyiv. At the exhibition, viewers will be able to see art objects related to Lera Litvinova’s series of works ‘Under the Surface’, created as part of the EMBracing the Ocean residency. The exhibition is dedicated to the study of the impact of Russia’s actions on the territory of Ukraine on the Black Sea.
“More and more often in private conversations with ecologists, I hear the word “ecocide” in relation to the territory of Ukraine. The fragile ecosystem of the Black Sea, its uniqueness, requires special attention to ensure balance in nature. I hear from researchers how access to the collection of information to analyze the consequences of ecosystem destruction is being made impossible. So what is the present and possible future for the Black Sea?” says artist Lera Litvinova.
The exhibition runs from August 26 to October 26 2022 from 10:00 – 17:00 Wednesday to Sunday.
