Calling Kyiv?

Collective environmental work of art, 2015

Calling Kyiv? is an environmental work of art, which was made with the help of the people living in the the Frolivska refugee center in Kyiv. In the first stage, participants gathered their memories and stories of the meaningful places in Kyiv. Based on these stories artists structured four guided tours on which the audience can familiarize themselves on these locations. Sites are marked with plates with the stories of the interviewed person.

Calling Kyiv? is a monument for local identity and for the remembrance of your own history. This work of art records the local micro history and recent history. At the same time, it offers an alternative for the "official" way of writing history that has an alienating viewpoint towards personal experiences: what someone has experienced on that particular location and what it means to her/him.
