Voices of Love. Arsen Savadov

09.02.2020 - 30.08.2020

The Voices of Love – a personal project of Arsen SAVADOV, one of the iconic and provocative representatives of Ukrainian contemporary art.

During this project, visitors will see the premiere of the movie Voices of Love (2019), in which the author shows the historic re-enactment of the Marilyn Monroe concert in North Korea (1954) to elevate the morale of the US military. The modern remake of the star tour has been moved to military bases in eastern Ukraine: in Popasna and near Debaltseve. The role of Marilyn is played by opera singer Maria Maksakova and EL Kravchuk. The framing of the project will create a photo story of the design of the absurd travesty show.

Another project will be first shown separately – 11 staged photos from the Diary of the Drowned Man (2013) series, which continues the so-called romantic line in Savadov’s work.

The exhibition also includes selected photos from famous projects such as Donbas-Chocolate, Collective Red, Book of the Dead, Fashion at the Graveyard, Commedia dell’arte in Crimea, Kokto, Underground 2000, Angels.

M17 is open! The exhibition is extended for the period from July 14 to August 30.

WARNING! The exhibition has a 16+ age limit
