On February 22, we are going to have an artist talk with Olena Pronkina, who will introduce you to her work and the topics she focuses on. She is primarily interested in figurativeness through anthropomorphism, which for her is an inexhaustible source of visual possibilities through which she creates and seeks a place in the world for herself.
Since 2014, she has exhibited individually and in groups and participated in many residencies in Ukraine and Europe. In May 2022, she received a scholarship from the German art institution Kunstverein Ost (KVOST) in Berlin and became the first recipient of the Claus Michaletz Prize offered by the Secco Pontanova Foundation.
This residency is supported by the Creative Europe programme. The residency program is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council. Slovak Arts Council is the main partner of the project.
The residency is organized in collaboration with Meet Factory in the Czech Republic, hablarenarte: in Spain and Visual Culture Research Center, in Ukraine.
