Site-specific video installation


The work "Debris" is based on the sculpture "Metallurgists" by Alexei and Yuri Zhiradkov (1970), which Sergiy Petlyuk accidentally found sawn up in the Dnipro Palace of Illich, a monument of constructivism by Alexander Krasnoselsky (1932).

The project combines reflections on the objects, subjects and phenomena that make up the history of Dnipro City: water, stones, metal, hard labor and the sprouts of a new digital future. Wreckage is a symbol of what the city has lost as a result of socio-cultural and political changes, and which now aches, unable to heal, to be reinterpreted and adapted to life in the new conditions. These are all the objects that cannot find a place, are geographically splintered and continue to tear apart the urban space, remaining undefined and deliberately unnoticed.
