Art Wednesday: Olexandr Bogomaz City K
On December 11th as part of the Art Wednesday project, artist Olexandr Bogomaz will open his exhibition at the 4th floor of IZONE Creative Community.
A series of works by Olexandr Bogomaz City K is an urban metapatern, personal and impersonal at the same time. The project is both about the city and the place (because each “landscape” has its real geographical address) and about the general triggers of the post-Soviet space: typical panel buildings, monotonous playgrounds, painted tires, recognizable concrete fences.
A series of works by Olexandr about Kyiv and many other cities with similar suburbs, from Chisinau to Cologne. City K is about the modern cityscape, but also about its invariability for over ten years, and therefore about lacuna in time. Olexandr comments:
“The project is based on my personal experience. I was born in a panel, grew up in a panel, and now I live in a panel. I was born in another city, but in Kyiv I am in the same unified urban environment”.
It's a series about constancy, immutability, archetypes and the search for identity: through tuned, monumental, symmetrical compositions, through the use of common city codes.
