Published on the occasion of a solo exhibition by Nikita Kadan Stone Hits Stone and within the framework of the PinchukArtCentre Research Platform.
The historical past, in the form of ideologies, art and acts of political violence, lies at the heart of Kadan's oeuvre. He delves deep into the (Ukrainian) avant-garde and engages with the history of last century in Ukraine. Permeating the entire exhibition are historical events, objects and designs which the artist re-interprets with regard to modern-day pressing need to resist geopolitical failures, and far-right ideologies. With an acute sense of urgency, Kadan continues to talk about history as the here and now. But the exhibition goes beyond historical facts by addressing political violence embedded in binary world views. It makes the question of memory as such the subject of artistic expression while exposing and contrasting the political injuries caused to it.
