While in residence Yuriy Biley and Stanislav Turina will be working on Open Gallery Ukraine-the Netherlands: 1000 km view with Kyiv based curator Maria Lanko and Amsterdam based curator Irina Leifer. This Open Gallery follows in a long line of outlined spaces the Open Group has created so far in constantly changing constellations. The aim of this ongoing artistic endeavor is to alternate the conventional understanding of (art) spaces and the experience thereof while at the same time generating alternative communal experiences and implementing and transforming 'unreality' into reality for a certain time span. Several local artists and non-artists will be invited to engage in the production of the project both in De Bijlmer and in Ukraine.
