This pair sculpture is part of the "hyperplastic Motanka" project, a traditional doll from ancient times. Motanka is a traditional doll that protects both the house and the child with its positive energy. I like to study and delve into history. Inspired by this part of the history of my country, Ukraine, I got the idea to create a full-length motanka sculpture. Let it be even more powerful energetically than small and more noticeable. This project is also eco friendly. These dolls-sculptures are made from scrap materials that have become unnecessary at home, and these are different clothes, plastic, polyethene, cardboard, etc. This is an ecological project for which, to create it, I bought only adhesive tape in the store, I found everything else at home and in an art studio, which was recycled to cleanse our planet of pollution. This work carries a positive paired energy, motanka sculptures are lovers—love, peace and goodness. Love will save the world! Let everyone enjoy this wonderful feeling.

My name is Elena Bandurka, I am a contemporary Ukrainian artist-scientist. A major focus of mine is the development of the Eco theme with the help of art. And I also find the mixture of traditions and history interesting as a work’s subject in my art installations and sculptures. Two of my sculptures from the new project December 2020. Since May 2021 are in the collection of the Museum of Ukraine in the Museum of the History of the City of Kiev One of my black&white photos, get Berliner Liste Special Edition during Berlin Art Week 2017, when I took part in an exhibition in Berlin. I like to work in eco-art and other types of a socially important genre of contemporary art. I am inspired by what is happening around us. Ideas like the lightning sparkle in me. Sometimes it’s not easy to immediately realize an idea, I like to combine unusual things and surprise. I want to draw attention to open questions, such as preserving the environment, by using unusual materials in my work, as well as how beautiful a woman’s portrait is in black and white shadow. I have many ideas, but my main goal is to tell people in an accessible and interesting language how important is the preservation of the purity of our ecology and beauty will save the world and love makes us wiser.
