“No Rest at Protest” series is inspired by a process of detachment from the homeland. I left Ukraine three and a half years ago. Throughout this time I was observing the changes, I was facing. These include the personal attitude towards patriotism and the phenomenon of friendship in spite of distance. Immigration also influenced my overall viewpoint on the choice of being an artist and staying true to your statements. I also explored the trance-continental dialogue one faces through a change of geographical location and the access to the social media that keeps you up to date with the lives that used to surround oneself. Mixed fillings caused the dream-like mixture of memories combined with current political and cultural events that troubled the world in 2014-16.
