Net Making is both a real-life practice and a metaphor. People in Ukraine and abroad, often strangers, gather to weave together camouflage nets. It’s a practice driven by tragedy, but it can also function as therapy or social occasion. It is the epitome of self- organisation, horizontality and joint action, and a means of emancipation.
Katya Buchatska created Best Wishes by working with fifteen neurodiverse artists as an attempt to rethink the conventions of greetings and wishes and to explore language transformations.
Oleksandr Burlaka’s Work embodies the traditional practices of home textile weaving, characteristic of Ukrainian culture, while simultaneously forming a backdrop for others’ narratives of personal experiences and recent cataclysms.
Civilians. Invasion by Andrii Rachynskyi and Daniil Revkovskyi features archival videos collected from open sources, shot by civilians before and during the Russian invasion.
Comfort Work by Andrii Dostliev and Lia Dostlieva ironically investigates the stereotypes and expectations laid upon refugees in Europe, playfully creating a safe space for Ukrainians with the experience of displacement to reclaim their agency.
In a dialogue with this Biennale’s Foreigners Everywhere, the Ukraine Pavilion addresses the theme of otherness—through diverse personal experiences of war, emigration, and social integration.
