"There are no tyrannies that would not try to limit art, because they can see the power of art. Art can tell the world things that cannot be shared otherwise. It is art that conveys feelings."

 - Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine

Eurotel / Євроготель, 2009

The installation Eurotel (2009) creates a basic accommodation unit for a football fan out of two discarded 'people's cars' from the Soviet past. Made in Ukraine from 1958 onwards and model-led after Fiat 600, ZAZ Zaporozhets carries nostalgic associations for the post-Soviet audience and looks exotically low-tech to westerners. The name Zaporozhets translates into a Cossack of the Zaporizhian Sich or а man from Zaporizhzhia.
