On July 7, PinchukArtCentre presents “Vukojebina”, a solo exhibition by Nikolay Karabinovych.
The exhibition explores the borders between humanity as a cultural definition and human defined by animalistic instincts and desires.
Vukojebina is an obscene term used in the Balkans to describe the middle of nowhere, literally translated as a place where wolves go to make love.
Karabinovych addresses the sense of human dignity in conjunction with an existential conflict between our need for safety and protection and our longing for freedom, exploration and expansion. Vukojebina offers a mysterious zone, between here and nowhere, with neon lights and the animal world, both touching and eerie, combining pop-culture, real-life and a conceptual thought process. This show moves beyond politics and tackles the human condition in a historical, present and dystopian sense.
Curator: Björn Geldhof, artistic director of the PinchukArtCentre.
