PAUL RAMÍREZ JONAS (USA)
How serious are the promises we make to one another, the vows we take? What about the pledges made by our public leaders?
PUBLIC TRUST asks you to make a promise and examine the value of your word.
Your vow is recorded in a drawing you can keep, and then displayed on a monumental marquee board for passers-by to see in The Light.
This board places your words alongside other promises made by politicians, scientists, economists, corporations and weather forecasters, all chosen daily from headline news.
DMYTRO LEVYTSKYI (UKRAINE)
During his daily walks in Kyiv, artist Dmytro Levytskyi photographed his sights and surroundings.
The war seemed to leave a shadow on the street – on shop windows, old cars and the people going about their daily lives.
You are invited to spend some time with this photo album, and to listen to a soundscape of Levytskyi’s reflections. This intimate experience offers a window into the everyday realities of living in Kyiv today.
