The opening of “Ridniy Kray” exhibition by “Shilo” group at COME IN art gallery

11, April 2019

We invite you to the opening of Shilo Group “Ridniy Kray” (Homeland) on April 12, 19:00. It’s the first project within the recently announced collaboration of MOKSOP and COME IN art gallery. “Shilo Group” (Sergiy Lebedinskyy, Vladislav Krasnoschok) is almost nine years. Their body work is based on the local Kharkiv photography tradition that emerged in the late 1960s. The authors have absorbed its key principles, like deliberate “wrongness” of image, testing the borders of the photographic language and balancing between aesthetical and social poles. “Ridniy Kray” show will feature pieces done in Shilo’s recognizable style: black and white blurred shots with grains that remind of mezzotinto – a printing technique also known as “dark manner”. Those means allow the artists to achieve a specific poetical and obscure atmosphere, which turns the urban sceneries into an integral narration about the shifts inside the Ukrainian society. Those shifts leave the marks that the authors capture and analyse. Part of the works on the display were included into “Chronicle” book published in 2015.
