Maria Kulikovska is an Ukrainian-Swedish multimedia artist, architect, actionist-performer, researcher and lecturer in exile. She was born and grew up in Kerch on the edge of the Crimea peninsula, where she cannot return since the illegal annexation of the peninsula by Russia. The artist explores the transformation of her own body, watches the vulnerability of her body, and actively creates preconditions for feminist and queer discourses. Creativity of Maria Kulikovska is a radical combination of performances and sculptures, watercolors and old papers, physicality and substance, destruction and creation, complex symbols and understandable metaphors, powerlessness of screaming and power of material, weakness or careful and total.
Uleg Vinnichenko is an Ukrainian-Swedish architect-engineer. He was born in Zavodske in the Poltava oblast, Ukraine. Uleg has more than 15 years of experience in the architecture and development of innovative building materials and structures. He is the founder of the creative-experimental studio "Basis LLC". For the last years he has been collaborating with Maria Kulikovska in all of her sculptural projects. In 2020 Maria and Uleg built and opened the "Garage33. Gallery-Shelter" in Kyiv, Ukraine, for the artists from "conflict?" reflecting on a concept as "conflict body" and giving voice to marginalized groups.
