Art for Ukraine (38/81)


‘Sidor’s multidisciplinary practice investigates the concepts of perception, morality, ethicality and trauma. The paintings she creates often deal with the power relations of her subjects and the transformative nature of encounters. The artist is interested in the idea of the investigation of consciousness, awareness and empathy and the creation of a wide range of work is motivated by the possibility of exploring different perceptions and the potential of various forms of audience participation. Characterized by ornamental tendencies, her works are very often based on different writings on psychoanalysis and inspired by social, cultural and political transformations. The influence of psychoanalysis is also evident both in the titles of her paintings and in the subjects that she depicts, which have a strong surrealist connotation. All her artistic creation revolves around encounters of bodies with other beings. This point of connectivity as well as manipulated proportions, test the power relations of the subjects.' - East Contemporary
