The Words That I Need
Passing through the crisis of relationship with a partner, I was thinking about the human need for words to express love, approval, understanding, trust, support and care, and the impact of these words on the relationships. Following the reverse, I were carefully writing down in a notebook the words of a partner I did not want to hear. Instead of them I have formulated the words that I needed, and made paper ads, hanging them up in the city. To those strangers who called me I offered to say on camera the words that were listed in the ads, and thus, to create a psychological counterbalance opposed to the reality in which I lived.
I listened to strangers who were trying to save me. Their words were false, but it was the sincerity with which they said that made me to rethink what intimacy and understanding mean.

The Stone of Revolution
Video «The Stone of Revolution» is the personal author’s rethinking of events in Ukraine during the revolution at Maidan, where, demounting paving and armed with this weapon, people have tried to «dissasemble» and destroy inefficient system of governance that Ukraine has inherited from the Soviet Union. A piece of paving, the stone of revolution, became a symbol of hope for the expulsion of the spirits of the past, hindering the development of society.
A year after the revolutionary upheavals, the author finds a burnt chip paving in the neighborhood of Maidan and takes it to a trip to Moscow. She installs the stone into the Red Square paving in front of the mausoleum — exactly where the mummy of the former leader of the revolution Lenin is placed, organizing in such a manner a metaphorical image of a clash of the Soviet era with the energy of change.
