"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

The work Order of Things was created in 2015. Zvyagintseva turns to her archive of sketches, which were made in peacetime. These drawings capture the daily routine: a woman holding a child, a sleeping dog near the window, women collecting berries, women resting near the sea. They were created during the second year of war in Ukraine.  The artist has recreated these sketches with iron wire. Part of the picture has fallen off, the usual order of things has changed.
