Ukrainian Power: Hope, Love and perseverance - A conversation between Ukrainian Artist Elena Subach & Politician Lisa Yasko

 

Join us for an inspiring evening celebrating Ukrainian art and culture. SQUARE is proud to showcase Elena Subach’s latest exhibition, “Chairs”, featuring a series of striking photographs and objects depicting the refugee situation at the beginning of the war at the Ukrainian-Slovakian boarder, where Ukrainian families where separated for an indefinite time. The exhibition explores the theme of love, perseverance and hope in the face of adversity.

Following the vernissage, Elena will be joined by Lisa Yasko, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament and our Personality in Residence, for a thought-provoking discussion on the meaning behind the "Chairs" project. Together, they will explore how the Ukrainian people are responding to the ongoing conflict in their country, and how hope, love, and resilience continue to shine through despite the challenges.

To close the evening, Lisa Yasko will treat us to a special musical and poetic performance titled "Yellow-blue Night," showcasing the richness and diversity of Ukrainian culture through song, dance, and spoken word.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to engage with some of Ukraine's most talented artists and thinkers, and to discover the beauty and resilience of this remarkable country.
