BABYLON’13: Ukrainian creative documentaries

Why does she have an emotional connection with apartment buildings, and why sincerity is important for a painter? Watch the video! 00:00 – Buildings are just like humans 03:40 – Evening Kyiv 07:10 – Maybe, I couldn’t paint again 08:56 – Art can explain anything 10:48 – Painting is like a song or a pray This is the 5 episode of Art in the Land of War documentary series. Art in the Land of War is a Ukrainian documentary series, co-produced by @DocNoteFilmsProduction studio and @babylon13ua film collective. It consists of 25 short stories about Ukrainian artists – painters, musicians, sculptors, and writers, who did not leave Ukraine during the war. Following their everyday life and creative process, the project tries to find an answer to the central question: what is the place of art and the artist in the country at war? DocNoteFilms is an independent Ukrainian documentary film production. We have started our documentary work as a part of BABYLON’13 association of independent filmmakers. From the Maidan revolution in Kyiv to this day, we focus on covering the development of Ukrainian civil society in the backdrop of current but doubtlessly historical events. Our goal is to spread accurate information and understanding of Ukrainian affairs throughout the world, and to raise the spirits and tell the stories that are not yet told within Ukraine. To do so, we have arrangements to publish our work on the platforms of our long-standing partners – BABYLON’13 and Ukrainian national broadcaster UA Suspilne. #DocNoteFilms #Babylon13

Kateryna Kosianenko. Exposition d’oeuvres graphiques. Mon Kiev. Mon Paris

Mercredi 14 mars, 19h30. Centre Culturel de l’Ambassade d’Ukraine

“Un Dialogue graphique Kyiv-Paris. C’est un dialogue artistique, architectural, humain. Deux villes, deux capitales, deux cultures, des milliers de vies humaines connectées, des œuvres d’art…

“Un Dialogue graphique Kyiv-Paris. C’est un dialogue artistique, architectural, humain. Deux villes, deux capitales, deux cultures, des milliers de vies humaines connectées, des œuvres d’art… Ce cycle d’œuvres graphiques de Kateryna Kosianenko est un art graphique professionnel, une vision d’auteur sans « images d’Épinal» et sujets banales “pour les touristes”. Ce sont Kiev et Paris authentiques, des rues uniques, un tempérament particulier, l’ambiance spéciale, de vieux jardins touchants et éphémères, des monuments historiques.” (de l’article de Lidiya Hurskaya au catalogue de l’exposition)

Kateryna Kosianenko, née le 21 novembre 1978 à Kyiv/Kiev est une artiste-peintre ukrainienne. Elle est membre de l’Union Nationale des Artistes d’Ukraine (depuis 2002), diplômée des Beaux-arts de Kiev. En 1996, elle obtient son baccalauréat à l’Ecole spécialisée d’art Taras Chevtchenko, Kiev. En 2002, elle est diplômée de l’Académie Nationale des Beaux-Arts et de l’architecture (département de décoration de théâtre, sous la direction de Danylo Lider), puis continue ses études de peinture approfondies sous la direction de l’artiste émérite de l’Ukraine, professeur Vassyl Hurin. Elle obtient son Master de peinture en 2005. Elle a participé à des expositions en Ukraine et à l’étranger (depuis 1999). 23 expositions personnelles à Kiev, Paris, Nice, Cracovie, Tcherkassy, ​​Abu Dhabi, Olsztyn, Varsovie témoignent de la notoriété acquise de l’artiste. En 2009, elle est invitée à la Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris) pour une résidence artistique. Elle est membre de l’Association “Ukraine-France” (Ukraine, Kiev) et de l’association Art sans frontières (Art Union without borders, Pologne, Cracovie). La technique et le style de l’artiste se rapprochent de l’art traditionnel ukrainien, de l’iconographie de l’époque du baroque ukrainien. Ses œuvres sont appelées “authentiques”, “figuration ethnographiques”. Elle peint des icones, travaille dans le domaine de la peinture de chevalet, au théâtre et au cinéma.
