Wind, Feather and An Exhibition

27 Nov

Saw this today and thought you, Dear Readers, might like it too.

Walking into town this afternoon, my eye was caught by a pretty little feather on the path.

Redruth has been privileged to be hosting a remarkable exhibition by Ukrainian artist Evhen Bal ‘Artifacts of Zero’. These antiwar artworks are made of Russian shrapnel and spent munitions that Evhen collected near Severodonets, Mykolaiv and at the Kramatorsk Railway Station. ‘Zero’ refers to military slang – the forward position, closest to the enemy, of fighting units.  The exhibition is not beautiful in any conventional sense but talking to the artist and learning more about the war, the people, the community spirit, the grabbing hold of life was such a powerful and moving experience.  The following poster was up on the wall.

Slava Ukraine
