Lviv. Ya Gallery
06.12.2022 – 26.02.2023
Starting with the first "Vyvyh" festival, "Interdruk" and "Defloration" exhibitions in 1990, Lviv began to reflect on its history in a modern way. It was the search for a new language, not shackled by the past, but, on the contrary, unchained, that became one of the tasks for an active citizen who always wanted and could create, if not on canvas or in stone and performance, then in business, crime or power. Lviv is programmed for creativity. He always takes his chances and surprises.
The old accommodation in the Art Nouveau building of 1906, which today has been transformed into the art space "Ya Gallery", this time is approaching its original purpose. Volodymyr Kostyrko creates separate installations in four halls. A mixture of modern art, history and objects of the past reveal the theme of Lviv style.
"Lviv frieze" is a spatial chaos, a layering of artifacts, where, as a rule, there are no random things.
"Salon of Memory" is a meeting-story with four persons important for our local and at the same time world history.
