Zhanna Kadyrova: PALIANYTSIA

Biblioteca Classense, Sala del Mosaico
14 October 2023 - 14 January 2024
Every day except Sunday

From 14th October 2023 to 14th January 2024, in the frame of the 8th Biennial of Contemporary Mosaic of Ravenna, the Sala del Mosaico of the prestigious Classense Library hosts PALIANYTSIA, a project by the Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova curated by Maria Rita Bentini.

Through the language of art, this exhibition invites the public to rethink the tragic condition of the war, giving the artist the opportunity to tell – in addition to her story – the one of many of her compatriots in this very tragic historical moment.

From the Venice’s Biennale Arte 2022 to today, the project was taken to many different countries and significant exhibition halls.

Palianytsia, meaning bread in Ukrainian, is a word that – mispronounced by Russian occupiers – in the context of war has turned into a evidence to differentiate friends from enemies.
