A.V. On the scrapheap of history DUO Contradiction 2023

It is an anti-war manifesto by the artist rethinking her practice during the ongoing war. 

The exhibition presenting the series of old (pre-war) large-scale black and white graphic sheets with battle scenes. They are torn, crumpled, tangled, and rewoven in the meat grinder of historical events. Body parts are superimposed on each other, they cannot be recognised, and everything is mixed up in this impersonal mass. The artist also reduces her name to initials in order to get lost in the impossibility of distinction. 

«This is not the time for new artworks», − she says – «The war must be stopped and consigned to the dustbin of history along with its colonial legacy».
