WG Artist in residence Anna Kakhiani from Kyiv came to the Netherlands shortly after the beginning of the war, first living in the 'opvangcentrum' in the former townhall of Piershil, Hoekse Waard, then setting up studio in Amsterdam. Completing her 3 month residency at airWG she now presents her work in an exhibition at puntWG.
The exhibition entitled Tomorrow's Light is Falling on My Wall captures, in a non-documentary way, the changed sense of the future that has come about because of the war, as Ukrainians are forced to leave their homes and abandon their lives.
Anna Kakhiani (1991) is a Ukrainian visual artist and curator, working with a range of media, including video, film, text, installations, as well as performance and land art. During the last decade, she has developed art projects and installations, often in collaboration with artist groups, cultural organisations and artistic initiatives. She has exhibited at a variety of venues, predominantly in Ukraine, and participated in the residency curated by Liverpool Biennale 2018. Recently, she took part in the Moon Gallery Foundation project “The Essence of Home” 2022-2023.
Anna Kakhiani’s WG residency is supported by the Dutch Fund for Ukrainian artists,
Mondriaan Fund and airWG.
