Info + CV

Yasia Khomenko is a Ukrainian interdisciplinary artist and fashion designer. She studied at the Kyiv University of Technology and Design, graduated with a MA in Fashion Design in 2010. Yasia works with textile experiments in an artistic medium of social co-participation, investigating new forms of material and color compositions.

Khomenko is a pioneer of upcycling the Ukrainian fashion scene with her RCR Khomenko brand, creating collections out of the old wardrobe, curtains and tablecloths sourced from surrounding villages and all second hand that matched her ideas from 2011.

In 2019 she launched XOMEHKO (cyrillic spelling of Khomenko), in which her practice continuously functions as a space that questions cultivated "sustainability" through social dialogue and technological experimentation that lies beyond commerce profit. Based on this all objects that are made is a relative concept, and their aesthetics is a result of a spontaneous, creative impulse. 

Since the full scale russian invasion in February 2022 Yasia Khomenko went more into social interaction art practice that combines the cultural and socio-economic questions of the war migration with the criticism of the structure of the fashion industry. The main idea is the development of the NEW PRODUCTION, where volumes are a relative concept and all products are made as a voluntary creative impulse.
