Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova continues her ongoing ‘Second Hand’ series, for which she makes ceramic clothes utilizing tiles discovered around the globe. For her 2019 installation at Galleria Continua in Cuba, she collected ceramic tiles from the streets of Havana and uses materials from local factories while produces strong ties with the surrounding communities as a part of her creative process.
After extensively visiting Havana and its periphery, the artist realized that although history once paralleled Soviet Ukraine and Revolutionary Cuba, the island shines with a unique aura. The coming exhibition that will open on August 30th in #CzechRepublic will be hosted by #ZahorianGallery ! Stay tuned for more information soon !
Zhanna who represented Ukraine in the 55th and 56th Venice Biennials is also taking part in the 58th edition this year as well.
