On loss

“On loss” is a collective exhibition of Ukrainian artists, curated by Nikita Kadan. The artist has been working in the residence of the Lviv Municipal Art Center since June. This exhibition is the result of Kadan’s stay at our institution and the realization of the planned exhibition project in the gallery of the Center.

Authors: Yevgenia Belorusets, Open Group, Oleg Holosiy, Alla Horska, Nikita Kadan, Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Khimey, Margaryta Polovynko, Daniil Revkovskiy and Andriy Rachynskiy, Fedir Tetyanych.

The curator about the exhibition “Regarding loss”: “This exhibition is about life-in-loss. Not a list of losses, not a mourning, but an attempt to capture the state of constant loss as such and give it form and voice. Losses become milestones on the historical path, whereas any accumulation is usually ahistorical. It is doubtful and impure, only loss is pure. The lost creates an alternate canon, treasures gathered in heaven.
