Tetiana Slobodianyk

TETIANA SLOBODIANYK is a Visual artist born in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine in 1982, currently living in Finland. As a Documentary photographer and filmmaker she devotes her creative quest to the study of personal boundaries and their vulnerability, the fragility of the human personality, and the possibilities for interacting with the outside world.


During my residency I am working on my private diary. It consists of my notes and photographs taken throughout the year. Within my work I will share my experiences related to moving, adapting and war based trauma. As a result, I will make a photo book “No place to return “

Tetiana Slobodianyk’s residency at AARK is realised in the context of the Ukraine Solidarity Residencies programme.

The current partners of the programme are AARK, Art Centre Salmela, Connecting Points programme, Fairres, Goethe-Institut Finnland, HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme, Kristinestad Art Residency, Loviisa Art Support Association, Nelimarkka Museum, Pro Artibus, Tahmelan Huvila, The Finnish Artists’ Studio Foundation, The Finnish Illustration Association Kuvittajat, and Värtsilä Artist Residency.
