Alina Khorolska

Alina Khorolska is a Ukrainian artist working in the field of media art. In her practice, she explores object forms phenomena. Using deconstruction and composition techniques, the artist re-defines items with new meanings. She is using synthesis of digital and natural components to bring her collages into some new undesignated areas.

As a professional animator Alina is also closely related to the video art medium. She is looking for the forms of expression including hand embroidery, watercolor drawings and oil pastel abstractions.

I’m happy to come to such an amazing place as Suomenlinna Island to revise my impressions from the last two months. My aim is to create a series of abstract digital works which reflect personal experience during the war.

I’m going to use a mixed medium technique which combines paintings and video art.

Alina Khorolska’s residency is part of the Ukraine Solidarity Residencies program started in March by a group of independent art organisations who joined together to pool resources and share information. The current partners are AARK, Connecting Points programme, Fairres, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, Goethe-Institut Finnland, HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme, Pro Artibus, The Finnish Artists’ Studio Foundation, The Finnish Illustration Association and Saari Residence.
