The animated project features images of 56 mosaics by Alla Horska, Hryhorii Pryshedko, Halyna Zubchenko, Ada Rybachuk, Volodymyr Melnychenko, and other Ukrainian artists. More than a quarter of these works have been damaged or destroyed since the beginning of the Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The installation was created by the Ukrainian Institute and the Rock ‘n’ Light Studio based on documentary photographs by Yevhen Nikiforov.
