Who are we here and now? Are you sure that this or that your choice is really your choice? A young artist, a participant of the “Silver Easel” contest Ruslan Luchko asked himself these questions. On 31 January 2019, in the gallery of the Lviv National Academy of Arts, he presented his experimental exhibition project “Creation of a Free Person” under the guidance of Vasyl Odrekhivskyi.

The title interprets the project: here the question of the dependence of a person on what surrounds her is raised, and awareness of the impact of events, phenomena and even society on her actions. Is that what you are doing – is your desire, your choice? Are you sure that you are a free person? After all, as noted in the concept of the project, “all that we see, hear and feel makes a significant contribution to the future choice, in the light of this, any acts can be called deterministic, deprived of the right to free choice.”

Ruslan Luchko worked on the embodiment of the idea for about a month, but he had been carrying out a plan for over a year. Most time, as he admits, took reflection on this subject, understanding the concept. However, at the same time he adds: “It was a kind of agony, I quickly threw the idea into the material, but who knows how it would look like if I worked longer?”

The project is interesting not only by its idea, but also by the way of realization, because here are combined ten art objects represented by art glass, painting in mixed technique, video art and installation.

“Combining these materials was a peculiar challenge for me. I like the wide possibilities of art, because one idea is easier for me to embody in glass, and I see the realization of another only in painting,” the artist says.

The exhibition will last until 15 February 2019.
