PARADE-FEST, KHARKIV, UKRAINE, 9.09.2021
OPENING OF THE EXHIBITION „ARCHITECTURE OF TRANSITION”
The exhibition project entitled ARCHITECTURE OF SURVIVAL (2016-2017) is a series of documentary photographs of the Greek island of Samotraki, places close to the transit routes often chosen by refugees from Turkey, among others.
The photographs depict the timeless architecture of nomads, migrants and refugees, which seems to be a visual symbol of the phenomenon of emigration and house hunting. “Imagine that this is a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity is actually dead, and those who have survived are forced to seek shelter in houses built without any special tools – from what is available at hand. (…) In this vision of history, where the end meets the beginning, it is not clear whether we are dealing with regression, or with the image of a new, different world,” says artist on official website of the project.
