We, the Imagine Point team, together with the artists, planned to realize this project even before the great invasion, but we were able to implement it only now - adding new works and looking at those written before the war in a new way.
"Perhaps, for me, this is a loss of the chronological linearity of time since it is no longer possible to see another life in old works, exactly what was embedded in them before. We decided to combine works from different series, which are imbued with one idea - existence during the war, because even those created before, with the new context, began to be perceived in a completely different way, like shops with chipboard sheets in the window openings, mutilated wagons, etc." - Anna Prykhodko.
"With the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the perception of the metro as a location changed radically. From the first days of the war, people began to use it as a shelter during an air raid. People took documents, food, and blankets and waited until it was safe to go home. Very often, the nights were spent mostly on the floor. This underground infrastructure is potentially ready to receive the city's inhabitants at any moment, serving as a shelter from missile attacks and drones. This war brought a completely new meaning to many things that previously seemed quite familiar every day. The future is still unclear for us" - Vladyslav Riaboshtan.
