Volodymyr: I was born in Lviv (Ukraine). I’m a 21-year-old student of Architecture. I dedicate most of my time to architecture and Photoshop. To me, the Internet is a surrealist view of the 21st century, which is also the main message of my work. My work often tackles themes like mass consumption and ecology, inner harmony and sincerity in the net. We got acquainted through the Pasika Art Platform about half a year ago. I felt a great spiritual connection with her work and started to follow her on Instagram. She has a crystal of pristine thoughts inside her. You simply can’t stop thinking about in-depth themes when talking with her.
Оksana: I was born in Kyiv in 1994 and I still live here. My mother and father had a mental disorder – schizophrenia. I guess that’s the reason I got into an orphanage, where I grew up from 1997 to 2012. My mother died in 1998. My father is still alive but incapacitated. Throughout the entire orphanage period, in addition to standard school education, I took an active part in the creative life of the place, which made me start to believe in a better future.
After graduating from the orphanage, I entered the Kyiv National University of Technology and Design, Faculty of Design Environment, from 2012 to 2017. This was my first real introduction to the world in all its varied expressions. I’d been adapting to the playing field and studied all its rules. After graduating from university, I started to ask myself the same question: why did it happen to me? From this impetus, I plunged into the world of self-knowledge in various manifestations. One of these manifestations is the process of realising my body as my path, which lasts throughout this life.
The main topic of my research is the life path of Consciousness (soul), which unites and nourishes my personality and manifests through three bodies on physical, emotional and mental levels. Namely: The way of life she (soul) chose, the interaction with it, her manifestation and condition that affect the external environment and vice versa, as well as the integrity of the internal processes, the interaction between them. That is why the main message of my work is: I am the one that manifests itself through the way of life. The path is the body. The body is a path of the soul.
