Can the practice of memory preservation be considered art? With this question, we invite you on May 11 to the opening of “In Memory of the One Who Keeps the Memory” – a new exhibition at the Jam Factory Art Center.

Designed by Kseniia Bilyk, the exhibition combines works from the 1950s to 2024. Among them are the reconstruction of the residence of the Lamakh family, videos by Anna Daučíková and Geta Brătescu, unique ceramic sculptures by Ada Rybachuk and Volodymyr Melnychenko, paintings by Kateryna Bilokur, and etchings by Pavlo Makov, as well as tapestries, drawings, textile, and glass objects by artists from Kyrgyzstan, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine.

The prologue to the exhibition is the life and creative practice of Alina Lamakh, a Ukrainian artist known for her tapestries and her role as the compiler of the legendary The Book of Schemes, written by prominent Ukrainian Sixtier Valerii Lamakh. The story of Alina Lamakh, reinterpreted by curators Maria Lanko and Lizaveta German, prompts reflection on displaced identities, hidden lives, and (artistic) means of bringing them back to a common space. “In Memory of the One Who Keeps the Memory” also critically examines gender, national, and genre stereotypes and the hierarchies that dominate Ukrainian and world art.
