Ukrainian artist Yaroslav Ternovskyi wrote a series of APOCALYPTISIM works during the quarantine period.
Have you ever looked at that everyday thing from that point of view?
“The idea of the concept originated a long time ago.
I have always thought about the art object, about the object to be depicted. Some recent events have led me to think that an art object can be exactly what you see.
It shows variability, how certain events, certain cataclysms affect the state of things, the consciousness of people and change it, if not radically, then quite profoundly.
As one famous artist said, “A work of art is not something a person needs.” However, in an art object, a person always needs it!
My message, to put it in words, is a provocation to think.
The concept of the series is particularly ironic about how people consume art.
Irony is important indeed in art, especially with such a plot. Irony is a necessary component here.”
