As the escalation of violence continues at the gates of Europe since February 24, 2022, art tries to fight back. In response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Fort Gansefort will curate a limited edition of 100 prints in collaboration with Ukrainian-born artist Zoya Cherkassky.
Objective of the initiative: to donate a percentage of the earnings generated by the sale of each print to the Ukrainian Red Cross. Funds raised will be used to provide food, water and other essentials to regions in need, as well as provide emergency support to hospitals and primary health care facilities.
Art therefore tries to bring help to the Ukrainian people, through the works of Zoya Cherkassky, an artist from the Soviet Union, born in kyiv in 1976. She owes her inspiration to the landscapes of her youth, which appear as common themes in his art.
His works, known worldwide, have been exhibited in institutions such as the Rosenfeld gallery, in Tel Aviv, the Circle1 gallery, in Berlin, or more recently, at Fort Gansefort in New York, in 2019. This latest exhibition is entitled: Soviet Childhood (a Soviet childhood).
