post-Soviet discourse

Andriy Stegura, Por Amor
video (fragment)
intervention in public space
Artists' statement:
Beings with arms and legs, and yet they are hardly akin to people, because they have not got heads.
They can’t see, only their arms and legs have contact with the world.
They travel in magnificent cars, make appearances in public places, and lay flowers at memorials.
Silent beings in full-length garments are not perceived as “ordinary people”, even though they are polite and obey the rules.
You may not arrest them for breaking the law, and yet their very presence evokes both fear and hilarity at the same time, and perhaps – in a particular way – a breach in public order.
Viktor Melnychuk, Catcher in the Rye

Любомир Тимків


ПРОТИ НСХУ (поетичний маніфест)


Якщо ти художник

і інших ти сфер,

НСХУ для тебе

це “Ху” від тепер.


Так, пенсію зроблять

і честь і хвала,

та ось на плечах

не твоя голова.


І звідки ж узятись

там силам новим,

коли все гниле

віддають молодим.


Достатньо, пожило

розбещене Ню,

НСХУ час скидати

В кромешну пітьму.
