During your work, have you noticed topics for artistic research that no one is working on today, but which would be good to explore in modern Ukraine? Yevgen:
In fact, there are so many of them, and the more I travel around the country, the more of them appear. They tend to follow from one another. Now I'm interested in the topics of the experimental-exemplary village, and rural labour. This project had already been shown in part at the Biennale of Young Art in Kharkiv in 2019. The short film "Kettlebells Oh My Kettlebells"
for the festival "86" was made about it, but for me, it is a story that stretches ahead for several years.
I am also concerned about what happened this year — both the lockdown and the fires in the Zhytomyr and Luhansk regions. I decided not to work on this topic, so as not to chase the moment. I will wait and look at the long-term consequences. I'm also interested in the topic of water life, water pollution, pollution in general. I'm still working on some ideas, but that's in the future.
