LRG Exhibition: Selected Works by Yarema & Himey

Kyiv-based artists and filmmakers Roman Khimei and Yarema Malashchuk have been collaborating at the boundaries of visual art and cinema since 2013. Their work engages with imperialist mythologies, youth, nostalgia and Soviet legacies. This exhibition is a brief survey of the duo’s work to date.

Selected Works features the film Dedicated to the Youth of the World II (2019) documenting Cxema, the biggest techno-rave in Ukraine. This acclaimed work is made even more poignant today when faced with the uncertain fate of the youth in this video, produced prior to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022. The exhibition also features the new work Explosions Near the Museum (2023), produced from the war zone in the liberated city of Kherson, in a museum looted by Russian occupational forces less than two kilometres from Russian-occupied territory.

Selected Works by Yarema & Himey is an official exhibition of PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography.
