Humanitarian aid project

Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraime, March 2022

On February 25th, the 2nd day of war, full-scale Russian invasion in Ukraine Yasia escaped from Kyiv to Ivano-Frankivsk in the western part of Ukraine and saw the endless piles of humanitarian aid clothes, collected by local inhabitants. At the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine sharing things between people was the only way to get clothes or other necessary stuff. That fact brought an artist to the idea of social sharing interaction.

This practice is based on research of the socio-economic codes  that have been highlighted in mass by the changes the world has been subjected to, demonstrating the symbiosis between war crises and building new social relationships.

"Humanitarian aid project" reflects the idea of reconstruction from the destruction brought by the war. With the help of local organisations (Promprylad, MetaLab, Framiore, Centre of educational innovations) all unwearable clothes and damaged textiles from humanitarian aid centers were reconstructed into new objects.

This project was made during "the Working Room" residency, curated by Lesia Khomenko and was shown in numerous group exhibitions such as “A: 2402 / D: 2022” in A:D:Curatorial (Berlin, Germany), MitOst-Festival (Maribor, Slovenia), “What is depicted here?” in Museum Folkwang (Essen, Germany)
