VIEW IN MY ROOM
The object is from the project ‘Parthian shot’. Time always eludes us. Hiding behind the false discreteness of our observations. As soon as we turn away and shift our gaze, the point of observation shifts, and we ourselves turn into time's moving target, where time always wins by retreating. Aims with a Parthian arrow, always striking. There are only traces left, while we are trying to keep up with time. A wrinkle on the body. Metal oxide. Rust. This trail replaces the gap between the artificial and the natural. The trace creates new connections, new forms of relationships. Not belonging to either man or nature as opposed to the Anthropocene. The Antikythera mechanism turns into a part of the reef, flowers replace bullets. Bruno Latour believed that such a relationship reveals the true essence of the subject, where the object is humanized, and the person is reified so the shell follows the contour of the human body, the carapace protects this body and the shell survives the human body without protecting it. The carapace replaces the body of the warrior. The carapace becomes warrior.

Vasya Dmytryk ( b. 1991, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine) graduated from the Grekova Art School in Odesa in 2016. He works mostly with sculpture and installations. Member of the SRZ-2 community. In his artistic practice, Dmytryk often explores industrial systems and their interaction with the natural environment, where new coordinated connections are created between them. His pieces refer to figurative traditions across a range of cultures and historical periods. Dmytryk creates sculptures primarily out of wood, metal, composites, and found objects. Lives and works in Odesa, Ukraine. Participant in Ukrainian exhibitions and residencies. His works are in private collections in the USA, Great Britain, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, as well as in the collection of the Odessa National Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Odessa. When I work with a material, I explore its sensory and symbolic nature. Each material has its own specific language, and working by hand reveals it. I follow the language of wood, metal or styrofoam, and I bring new words to this process, creating a new dictionary. I am interested in the search for primary foundations, the search for realness at the stage of its birth. By using discarded and recycled materials to reveal these foundations, I repair our relationship to the primitive vitality of the world.
