MPMonumental practice, micro space, mega space, monkey panic, mankind population, monumental space, surface boundary and dreaming memory. There can be any interpretation as well as any subject seen in the works. In each language, those two letters, M, and P stand for different words and may form different concepts, constantly attached to the same visual representation, which is also perceived differently.

Exhibition «Expectative» is a premonition, an attempt to find the idea of ​​human literally under one’s skin, to feel the space of the inner and outer world, and perceive oneself in it. The Kolos is created by drawn graphic giant to depict a monumental idea of ​​the Man. It does not portray an idol, a leader, a totem or a hero, but a pure form and multifaceted essence.

The search for national identity has replaced human dignity for us. Trends in fashion and media have replaced self-sufficiency. Financial success has replaced self-respect. The combination of scientific knowledge about the man does not create one’s complete image. Only at the dawn of the 21st century, it becomes clear that the man has never been a Meccano set that can be measured and researched. It is, first of all, a spiritual space in the bodily shell that defines itself by values ​​and irrational meanings, and is almost beyond the control of scientific study.

 

Ever since the 1960s, progressive science has been stating an absence of the man as such. One, the person, is defined by anything – history, language, religion, gender or sexual orientation, by the time in which one lives, and even cultural identity. But the man is almost not perceived holistically and self-sufficiently. Humanity is losing an idea of ​​the man, devaluing it, dissolving it in a world full of anxiety, fiction, global information glut, conflicts, and cataclysms.

Humanity is losing the man. Don’t lose yourself.

In my works the drawing was executed in so not contemporary way, but rather on the contrary classical and quite traditional in the coal on paper technique. In general, I question, what makes art being contemporary? Is it the time or technical creativity? For me, there are many factors.

Carrying an autopsy on myself, my inner «I», exposing it or, vice versa, hiding it and change reality with fantasy and image. The purpose of this study is to identify the causes of the death of a dream and its transformation into memory – since these two phenomena never intersect, each person, having a dream and incarnating it, largely kills it, since, from the moment of embodiment, the dream no longer exists as an inspirational and motivating phenomenon, but passes into the section of the past, reincarnates.

Automatic archiving of reality – it becomes a memory, or we can call it so. That is how I came up to the question of how it is possible to stop and learn more closely this moment that will never come – the simultaneous existence of the desired and real, unknown future and the past. Archiving each object by treating it as an artifact, which can exist in different spaces and affect them. The cycle is always in the process of creation both visually (physical) and conceptually (intellectual). Nowadays the complete size of drawings is 630×2300 cm.

The skeletal image of the modulated anthropomorphic form comes with an object, which consists of parts, differently executed and those drawings form up the almost limitless puzzle. Why almost – because probably it will take a long time, as we are talking about the complete ending of the drawing that will consist of hundreds of objects.

The ability to work with the pieces of this size does not always exist. It pretty much depends on the space, a room, or a short-term atelier. Even though it might sound strange.
The project was performed with the support of such institutions and organization as:
– Maslo Art Space, Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine.
– Scholarship “Gaude Polonia” from Ministry of culture of Poland and National Center of Culture (Narodowy Centrum Cultury), The Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland.
– Mysteckyj Arsenal, at the “Festival of Young Ukrainian Artists” in Kiev, Ukraine.

– The Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland.
– Catena Art, the “Roots Project” symposium in Berlin, Germany.

Certain pieces are parts of master’s thesis in Lviv and Wroclaw.
