Kateryna Lysovenko is a Ukrainian artist born in 1989. She will talk about her artistic practice, starting with her work Body of the Empire (2023), which is currently on exhibition at Kunstraum Innsbruck.
Her research focuses on power and ideology and the transition from the Soviet Union to today, with topics ranging from dominance by the art academy to right-wing violence, religious oppression, and harassment. Her work included in the exhibition FREEFILMERS MARIUPOL is an attempt to view landscape as a body. War shows very clearly that the state is a body and can be attacked by another state body. War turns every meter of territory into living and dead flesh, every meter becomes a pain.
The event is organized in cooperation with Office Ukraine Innsbruck
