Exhibition: Sofiia Yesakova
Curated by Nicola E. Petek
At the beginning of this year, the invasion of Ukraine by Russia changed all our lives. Since that day, a war has been raging in the heart of Europe and the world as it was before 24 February no longer exists. The desire to create a space for dialogue and support led curator Nicola E. Petek to initiate the HAUNT Table: an informal afternoon every month meant to be used to socialise, be there for each other, exchange ideas whether you are an art or culture professional, a friend, or a newcomer to Berlin looking for a network.
War can never become commonplace, but for many, awareness of what is happening in Ukraine is long gone from what it once was. For our last HAUNT Table of this year, we therefore want once again bring the focus precisely back on this issue. We are therefore particularly proud that the Ukrainian artist Sofiia Yesakova will be realizing a pop-up exhibition in our pavilion to mark the occasion. The multi-disciplinary artist uses the language of minimalism, with a focus on expressing thoughts and emotions. In recent months, the war in her home country has also left its mark on Yesakova’s artistic practice.
