Culture of freedom
By capturing an instant of movement, artist Olga Prudka immortalizes motion as dynamic stillness. And by manipulating the perspective of her shots, she imbues this perpetual moment with political significance. Against the blue- sky background, the dancers’ translucent yellow garb evokes the Ukrainian flag, transforming their dance into an embodiment of the country’s strength: Even in darkness, Ukraine perseveres, united and unwavering, towards freedom.
