Black Earth. Forced Disorientation

On 8 March, the National Museum "Kyiv Art Gallery" opened the exhibition project of Victor Sydorenko "Black Earth. Forced Disorientation".

The exhibition brings together paintings and graphics from the series "Flashes of Black Earth" and the artist's film "Black Earth. Forced Disorientation". The artist worked on the project during 2022-2023, the years of large-scale war, but the reflection is caused not only by the events of the Russian-Ukrainian war, but also by fundamental aspects of human existence.
"I am trying to reflect the overall situation that people find themselves in at all times and everywhere, whether under totalitarianism or democracy, nowadays, like a century ago, - a battle with time. No one can escape its incomprehensible action. Yet everyone will have to be responsible for everything..." - Victor Sydorenko

"Black Earth" is a sequential development of the artist's cross-cutting theme, developed since the mid-1990s, when the main character first appeared in the project "Amnesia": the mass participant in social and historical cataclysms, who is the "material" and the impetus for the events of modern history.Curated by Halyna Skliarenko
