Hamlet Zinkovskiy is a Ukrainian artist, well-known for his street art works in Kharkiv and other cities. On August 4, 2018, his new exhibition called “Pain and Piece of Land” will be opened in Odesa. The exhibition consists of two separate projects. “Pain” is a series of illustrations to the book of modern German philosopher Reinhard Knodt “Pain. Philosophic and poetic miniatures”. The author of the book translation, Sergiy Dimitrov, says: “Knodt offers to see philosophy through “poetical” prism, to not avoid pain like something completely negative, but to consider it as a fundamental signal, impulse for finding balance”. The book will be presented on the exhibition official opening on August 4. “Piece of Land” is a story of one family during 100 years. It shows their piece of land, where they are born, where they grow up, live and die. The project is implemented jointly with Kharkiv municipal gallery.
