Zhanna Kadyrova: UNEXPECTED @ Galerie Rudolfinum
29. 02 2024 - 30. 06 2024
Kadyrova empowers objects and materials to tell the story of Ukraine’s fight for freedom from Russia. They become the voice of so many Ukrainians who remain voiceless in this violent war. The exhibition starts with a horizon of Shots (2022–2023), a set of tiles fractured by the impact of a gunshot, paired with Harmless War (2023), a series of white-painted geometrical forms made from metal sheets that have been pierced by shrapnel during the full-scale invasion in Ukraine.
The exhibition also takes us through the deeply personal journey of Kadyrova since 2014 till today. As a symbolic closing of the exhibition, Refugees (2023) depicts images of plants surviving the occupation alongside living plants that have travelled together with Kadyrova from Ukraine to Germany and now to Prague, remaining safe and well cared for, and finding temporary shelter in the Galerie Rudolfinum.
Entry is free!
