‘The patriarch of Ukrainian post-modernism’ Oleksandr Roitburd started creating works from this cycle in winter 2014 during the tragic events of Euromaidan in Kiev. The ironic title of the project hides a rather serious task: to comprehend and overcome a traumatic experience of facing reality.

The series represent characteristic allegorical philosophical works, which read subtle social irony. Alexander Roitburd made most of the paintings in his traditional heavy earthy tones and ascetic deep color. Roitburd speaks with the audience with the help of human bodies: he uses the human body, according to the principle of gathering a constructor. The artist creates a new harmonious combination of clear holistic schemes operating under the laws of ‘chain reaction’ and ‘connected vessels’. The bodies are cut and multiplied, glued and sprout through one another. Due to such anatomical metamorphosis artist embodies ‘the flour of the matter’, a powerful emotional impulse, inadvertently transferred to the viewer’s body.
