Last Chance To View: Nikita Kadan: Limits Of Responsibility

Make sure you catch this one

In the background of Nikita Kadan’s recent oeuvre are last spring’s events in Independence Square in Kiev, the artist’s native city. As clashes between anti-government protesters and state forces turned the maidan (square) into a battlefield - emblematic of Ukraine’s most intractable time in recent history – the artist documented the barricades, fires, and shelters erected by the pro-democracy activists in a series of photographic slides. While the views in the slideshow are familiar from news sites and social media, Kadan’s view of the maidan is not restricted to documentation and repetition. In a series of watercolour drawings that at first glance resemble traditional horticultural and anatomical textbooks, the artist intertwines plant bodies with human ones, nature with architecture. Objects that do not connect naturally here gradually dissolve into one another: bones merge with roots, leaves with concrete forms.
