NordArt, one of the largest annual exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe, has chosen this year to focus on Ukraine, where is presented Anastasiia Podervianska

NordArt, which has been held during the summer months since 1999, is one of the largest annual exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe. NordArt is a competition exhibition that is redesigned each year as a total work of art. It offers a complete overview of international contemporary art in a special atmosphere. More than 200 selected artists from all over the world present their images, photographs, videos, sculptures and installations that not only speak for themselves, but also develop new perspectives with each other in the interaction and in the unique context of the Carlshütte and the historic sculpture park.

The north may seem rough to some, but it has its charm. Hardly any other exhibition venue expresses this unique atmosphere like the former Carlshütte iron foundry, the first industrial enterprise in the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein. Founded in 1827 and closed in 1997, the Carlshütte in Büdelsdorf is not only an impressive industrial monument, but also offers an unusual atmosphere for cultural events of all kinds with its huge aisles, the restored ACO car depot and the extensive park.

Anastasiia Podervianska lives and works. in Kyiv
Here she presents a series of handcrafted textile panels, combining appliqué, children’s clothing and anatomical themes. Some panels consist of sewn-together pages of student diaries and notebooks. All these objects form milestones of a life’s journey. Together, they make up the matrix of the environment we exist in, an accumulation of all different kind of experiences. Viewing them in conjunction, sparks a synergy that grants everyday things an elevated significance.
« Hand embroidered kitschy napkins, crazy canvases, combinations of incompatible objects excite me. I play with all these items and allow myself to get carried away by inspiration. » 
In 2002, she graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in Kyiv, Faculty of Monumental Painting. Anastasiia works with patchwork, textiles, scenography, assemblage and painting. She was awarded the Third Prize at the 8th WTA World Textile Art Biennale, Madrid 2019, and she won a prize at the 5th Ukrainian Textile Triennial 2016.
