"I Feel You"Group exhibition of Ukrainian and international artistsMarch 8 - July 14, 2024

How does our capacity for empathy and our ability to listen to the stories of others change when living in a country at war? What is normality? How to define the value of individual life?
The exhibition "I Feel You" invites the viewer to listen to experiences, memories, and testimonies from different places around the world, including Ukraine. Landscapes emerge, carrying scars of human tragedy while bearing the seeds of hope. Unsilenceable voices sound free and loud, despite the repression of authoritarian regimes. Human anxieties and utopian dreams are eclipsed by the political manipulations that affect reality today.
Threats to life and freedom, inevitable losses, geopolitical strife, and climate change challenge the strength of the human spirit and our resilience. But they also give us a real urgency to live. They make compassion and empathy both tangible and essential for survival. Go where people sleep and see if they are safe*.
