Nikita Kadan, from the series ‘Broken Pole’, 2019–21
The Memory on Her Face
Feb 5 – Mar 28, 2022
Voloshyn Gallery
Kyiv / Miami

Voloshyn Gallery opened the pop-up exhibition The Memory on Her Face in Miami back on February 5, 2022. That was three weeks before the tragic events in Ukraine, when everybody still thought this turn of events impossible. At 5 am on February 24, the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine, beginning a large scale war against our country. To support Ukraine, Ukrainian artists and their art in this difficult time, we decided to extend the pop-up show in Miami as the Ukrainian artists’ peaceful protest against the war in Ukraine. They bring together the individual and the collective grief, and document physical destruction, collective anxiety and pain caused by the unignorable events that the whole world needs to talk about,” said Max and Julia Voloshyn, the co-founders of Voloshyn Gallery.

The Memory on Her Face is an attempt to highlight the artists’ take on historical events and processes, interactions between the past and the present, as well as their ideas of the future. The artists address the issues of national identity, destruction and renaissance. The pop-up exhibition curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud, an independent curator and artistic director of UNTITLED, Art. The participating Ukrainian artists are Nikita Kadan, Lesia Khomenko, Nikolay Karabinovych, Maria Sulymenko and Oleksiy Sai.

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.
