Disappeared Girlfriend: audio tour about sex work in Ukraine
Disappeared friend is an audiowalk through the streets of Kyiv. It focuses on the female pressence in the city space, letting us in through the eyes of another, and tells about current state of sexual services and its local history.
The author of the idea, Maria Borysova, tells the story and takes the audience through the city streets around the Olimpiyska metro station, the Lybid River, along Yamska Street, which was the center of brothels in Kyiv in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The story is based on real data – analysis of historical, statistical and literary materials, as well as interviews. This combination gives a feeling of immersion and presence. Female voices tell listeners the facts of today’s sex workers, intertwining them with excerpts from famous novels and diaries. The documentary information is framed by a fictional plot: the main character’s friend suddenly disappears for a few weeks.

The concept of VRArt Incubator project was is to launch a strong networking and cooperation process between VR/AR artists and beneficiaries of VR/AR products. Selected residents Vera DG and Nikita Khudiakov were granted with individual stipendium for creating their own immersive project or interpretation of some works from Chernivtsi Regional Art museum`s and Chernivtsi Regional Local Lore Museum’s funds.
VR Art Incubator project active phase happened 7-14 April 2021 in Chernivtsi. During those days two projects were presented: Token of Tripyllya and Sydor Vorobkevych’s “Native language” in AR.
Inspired by the shape and patterns of an ancient ax tip, which is over 6,000 years old, and combined it with a Trypillia painting and other ancient objects of Trypillia culture Nikita Khudiakov created a digital token, a three-dimensional object that rotates. During the experiments with Trypillia patterns, he developed own technique of combining geometric shapes. Transferring this idea to augmented reality (AR), he created the first NFT-token in Chernivtsi.
Vera Degtyareva (Vera DG) has created an audiovisual object associated with Sydor Vorobkevych.
Scanning the code, the visitor will see a portrait of the writer and the flying pyramids around. It is an immersive experience. And if we touch the screen, there will be other different effects. And in the background – the song “Native language”. Portrait of Vorobkevich in AR is the result of cooperation between the artist and artificial intelligence.
The Kyivite educational course by Sergiy Maidukov focused on artists who work with illustration and consider it as one of the arts in contemporary visual culture. 16 participants from all over Ukraine were selected by open call to take part in the intensive free course for two days in Kyiv. The course also included a theoretical part with open online lectures by Ukrainian illustrators Anna Sarvira and Sergiy Maidukov. The project aimed to develop a community of illustrators of different ages and from different cities of Ukraine through quality training and creative collaboration to expand interest in illustration as an Art and to promote the emergence of new experts in illustration. The project implementation process was based on several stages: the announcement of an open call for participation, online lectures and two days of practice, as well as the public presentation of works. 16 works on the topic “Kyiv after the pandemic” were created as a result of the intensive workshop.

ARCHEOLOGY OF ONE APARTMENT
Archaeology of One Apartment is the performance which aims to research the mnemonic relation of the generation of millennials with the material historical legacy through the symbolic archaeological exploration of typical Soviet apartment of the 60s. The term archaeology in this performance strives to produce knowledge about the paradoxes of historical memory using the artistic study of objects from the apartment interior and its semiotic potential.
