Серія малюнків/Series of drawings

For the series of drawings From Left to Right, Lada Nakonechna uses her own photographic images of barricades that were built by protesters in the winter of 2013/14 out of anything they could get hold of on the Majdan Nezalezhnosti, Kyiv’s Independence Square. Lada Nakonechna bases her work on the process of writing, a process that produces relevance and creates meaning. In Western culture we write from left to right. The two words “left” and “right” also refer to opposing political stances, so in this work the question about a possible change in direction re- mains open. This is history in the making, but no one knows how it is going to end, not even here. Thus the drawings dissolve to the right into nothing.
