The author said about the "Proverbs" on the official site of the art center: "I tried to look at proverbs as a sort of a script.This does not exclude their moral component, on the contrary - it should emphasize the ideological significance. That is, the picture should serve as a complement to the text and encourage a deeper understanding of it, and the text remains a key element the depicted image. In our time, as in times past, proverbs are often used in speech, regardless of age and social status of the population. Despite the fact that these phrases have come to us from ancient times, they do not lose their relevance and content because thay are exhaustive brief thoughts, which, moreover, are easily adapted, transformed and can acquire new meaning."
Andriy Khir, by the way, this year was nominated for "PinchukArtCentre" award - nationwide prize in contemporary art since 2009 for young Ukrainian artists under 35.
