Hanna Antonsson and Filip Rybkowski
we also host at the booth the understructures

Using a quasi-archaeological survey method, Swedish artist Hanna Antonsson (’91) and Polish artist Filip Rybkowski (’91) disassemble particular elements of reality, both atavistic and solidified in the symbolic order. From the clash and deconstruction, focusing on remnants and fragments, emerges a politicized polyphony reflecting the specifics of the current time.
Through their artworks, they reconstruct incidents, awakening this semantic hybrid to life, using the visual representations, symbolism and materiality of the fragments as an initial point, a starting moment for the interpretation machinery. Rybkowski’s tool is the critical act of reconstruction, combined with a reflection on the gesture of re-establishment, conservation and recapture. Antonsson’s exploration of taxidermy takes place through birds, wings and feathers, where parts of the bird are deconstructed and re-animated using moving, electronic parts to create sculptural works.

understructures, Kyiv-based collective founded in 2020, features two emerging Ukrainian artists who currently based in Ukraine – Ksenia Bilyk and Eliza Mamardashvili. Trough her work, Bilyk deconstructs the mechanisms of propaganda and the way they enchant people and fuel new myths. Mamardashvili, drawing from her own experience as a person of Georgian origin, born and raised in Ukraine, focuses on issues of national identity and common memory.
