Within the Artists in Residence project we present three solo shows of Galeria Labirynt’s residence artists from Ukraine and Kazakhstan, who have been this year’s scholarship holders of the Gaude Polonia programme of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. In the videos, performances, photographs and objects they executed during their six-month-long residence in Lublin, the artists deal with the themes of archives, memory and place, inspired by Lublin’s space and history.

Andriy Helytovych – Performans w miejscu / Performance in the place

Andriy Helytovych (born 1989, Lviv, Ukraine) – a graduate of the Lviv Academy of Fine with a diploma in Monumental Painting (2014). He has been doing performance art since 2015, being active especially in public space.

Igor Isychenko – Wyjście w miasto / Exit to the city

Igor Isychenko (born 1986, Kiev, Ukraine) with a PhD title in Social and Economic Geography (2011, Institute of Geography, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) has been a researcher and an artist since 2011. He is interested in the dependencies between the memory and imagination (both in the individual and collective aspect) and especially the ways in which these shape the past and the future of the cities.

Alexander Ugay – Więcej niż obraz, mniej niż przedmiot / More than an image, less than an object

Alexander Ugay (born 1978, Kyzilorda, Kazakhstan) – a graduate of a Kazakh National Academy of Fine Arts in Kazakhstan, he lives and works in Almaty. He is interested in time, especially its relations between the past and the present and their influence on the reality, but also the memory – both personal and collective.


The pieces on show have been executed within the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage’s Gaude Polonia scholarship fund.
