Places We Love: Art and the Ukrainian East

Places We Love:

Art and the Ukrainian East

St Andrews Botanic Garden

June 16th-July 12th 2022

Places We Love: Art and the Ukrainian East features the work of four contemporary Ukrainian artists: Viktor ‘Corwic’ Zasypkin, Masha Pronina, Oleksandr Kuchynskyi and Darya Tsymbalyuk. Ranging from photography to montage to painting, these works provide insights into industrial heritage, pre-war cityscapes, the violence of military incursions, and the multiple lives and loves of the Donbas region.

These are places that are dear to the artists. Many of them are now being destroyed by the Russian military.

Artworks were on display in The Garden Bothy and The Pergola.

The exhibition was accompanied by a weekend print sale, with all proceeds going to Ukrainian artists

Places We Love has been organised by the Centre for Contemporary Art in collaboration with the Centre for Russian, Soviet, Central and East European Studies and the Centre for Art and Politics at the University of St Andrews. The exhibition is co-organised by Catherine Spencer, Darya Tsymbalyuk, Victoria Donovan and Kate Cowcher.

Places We Love developed from the book Limits of Collaboration: Art, Ethics and Donbas (Kyiv: Rosa Luxembourg Stiftung, 2022), written by Victoria Donovan and Darya Tsymbalyuk with Dmytro Chempurnyi, Viktor ‘Corwic’ Zasypkin, Oleksandr Kuchynskyi and Katerina Siryk.
