gna project i Mälarhöjden: Vernissage – Galina Davydtchenko – Berättelse om en resa

11 oktober kl.17:00 - 13 oktober kl.16:00

gna project presenterar Galina Davydtchenkos utställning Berättelse om en resa

Resan började ur en dröm om att få svar på frågor det inte längre fanns någon att ställa till. Galina Davydtchenkos morfar Sergej Chrystal härstammade från byn Chorna (Svartbyn) vid gränsen mellan Ukraina och Moldavien. En gång i tiden låg byn i Rumänien, sedan i Ryssland och sedan i Sovjet och nu i Ukraina. Hennes morfar berättade inte särskilt mycket om sin barndom som var präglad av revolution, inbördeskrig, föräldralöshet, svält och misär.

Hösten 2018 genomförde Galina en resa till byn Chorna. Ambitionen var att hitta spår av sin morfar på platsen som hon, på sätt och vis, härstammar ifrån. Under resan har hon tecknat, fotograferat, skrivit och dokumenterat sina känslor. Utställningen är ett resultat av hennes upplevelser från resan till Chorna. Resan genomfördes med stöd från Längmanska kulturfonden.

Vernissage fredag 11 oktober kl. 17.00 – 19.00
Öppet lördag & söndag 12-13 oktober
13.00 – 16.00

Gna project presents Galina Davydtchenko’s exhibition The Story of a Journey.

“Where does a voyage begin? In my case, the idea of travelling came from a dream of finding answers to questions I no longer had anyone to ask.

My grandfather, Sergey Chrystal, came from Chorna (Black Village) on the Ukrainian-Moldavian border. The village had belonged to Romania, then to Russia, then the Soviet Union, and finally the Ukraine. Granddad died when I was 15. I’m 54 now, and he is still tangibly present in my life and artistic practice. All my relatives say that I inherited my interest in art from him; he was the only one who was artistic in my family. He was good at drawing.

In autumn 2018, with funding from Stiftelsen Längmanska kulturfonden, I travelled to the village of Chorna 47°37′08″N 29°20′23″E, some 150 kilometres north of Odessa. My intention was to find traces of his life in the place that, in some ways, is my origin. No one in my family has ever been to the village, and my grandfather didn’t tell us much about his childhood, which was characterised by revolution, civil war, hunger and poverty and being orphaned. There were no tombstones for my grandfather’s parents in the churchyard; most of the graves were nameless. But I did find distant relatives with whom I stayed and shared their everyday life and their sorrows. On my travels, I made drawings, took photos, wrote and documented my feelings. Now I want to share my experiences from this journey and what it feels like standing in fields that once belonged to my family.”
