PinchukArtCentre Presents Works by the Emerging Generation of Ukrainian Artists in the Ukraine House Davos

The PinchukArtCentre presents works by Zhanna Kadyrova, Lesia Khomenko, and Dmytro Starusev at the Ukraine House Davos during the 49th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF). For the second consecutive year the Ukrainian contemporary art is demonstrated on occasion of WEF with the aim to showcase to the global leaders the new Ukraine through the artworks by the emerging generation of Ukrainian artists whose concerns expand on socio-political reality of Ukraine.

Zhanna Kadyrova’s work refers to models of living together where we all look for a private space within an urban environment. The work by Lesia Khomenko draws the attention onto everyday life (much like Kadyrova) while the material used – satin glass – underlines the difficulties of sharing experiences with others. Finally the work of Dmytro Starusiev is a large scale layered photograph that is both a product of pushing technological limitations of handmade analogue photography and an abstract composition that thinks of Ukraine as a cross-road and a border between different worlds and realities.

Ukraine House operates January 21-25, 2019 in Davos and is organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF), Horizon Capital Ukrainian and Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA).

On January 24, 2019, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and international investment advisory group EastOne will hold the annual Davos Ukrainian Breakfast, their traditional private event organized at the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Address of the Ukraine House:

Promenade 62, Davos, Switzerland
