Oleksandra Lychak is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artwork:
My work is about the formation of female sexuality, freedom and violence – physical, sexual, psychological. Violence as a lack of freedom to be themselves as violent stereotypes. I used the media for personal belongings – clothes, lingerie.
For me it is important that in my works is a lot of corporeality. Corporeality as a manifestation of the unconscious. Abstract expressive strokes of paint is a manifestation of freedom, perhaps you will associate it of something else – blood or feces. It’s something like when a child wants to be dirty in the dirt or feces. They do not understand wether it is good or bad, they are only children and it is only creativity for for them.
About the artist:
I am an artist from Ukraine. Studied at the Art Studio and the School of Contemporary Art. I work in different techniques such as photo art, abstract painting, installation, and more. I had several personal exhibitions in Ukraine and Belarus. I prefer modern art. I like the work of other artists when they are bold and revolutionary. I think that art exists to expand the scope of our perception and get rid of prejudices and stereotypes.
