On April 11, francophones and francophiles residing in Kyiv will have an opportunity to visit a special presentation, dedicated to the French translation of the renowned Ukrainian art book ‘Skrynia’. The printed work has been recently presented in the Salon Livre Paris and now will be introduced in Kyiv’s It's NOT the LOUVR gallery bar featuring the special guest of the night, a Ukrainian singer Katya Chilly.
Right on time with the French Spring festival in Ukraine, a cozy gallery bar It's NOT the LOUVR located not far from Zoloti Vorota metro station hosts another francophone event — a presentation of the Ukrainian culture art book ‘Skrynia’, which literally means a ‘dower chest’. Skrynias were largely used in all regions of Ukraine to store the most valuable possessions like jewels and ceremonial attire. Surprisingly, the tradition still stays strong even nowadays.
On April 11, authors of the art book, writer Yaryna Vynnytska, and artist Yuliia Tabenska will lead the way into the world of Ukrainian livelihood and objects of sacral meaning.
Besides, the guests will find out more about the upcoming projects of the Ковчег (‘The Ark’) art platform, co-founded by the book’s authors. The sneak peek promises a grand collaboration with Ivan Honchar museum and Mystetskyi Arsenal.
When: April 11, 5 P.M.
Where: It's NOT the LOUVR gallery bar
