Artists who participated in the project: Tomashevskyi Boghan

Self-identification, awareness of self-essence is impossible without the relations with other people. And although the “other” word provides contrast, dissimilarity, it is not totally alien for a person who designs it. Each of us is image original and unique but one is similar to another. Another constantly accompanies us, he is part of our inner and outer world. Every day we see dozens of people, we notice our similarities and differences, we seek common and special.

So, every detail at work, which was created by Bogdan Tomashevskyi, is the one and only.  but at the same time, it is a part of the whole.  If you look at the subject from a distance, you can not distinguish one silhouette from others – all they merge into a solid pattern, an abstract relief, which was formed through the thousands of components.

To see and feel the work, the viewer must go into a dark room, compared by the author with the difficult present.  Now we are together going through troubled time, it has effect on us, harden, change and unite simultaneously.

“1 + 1 +” is the project about all of us, about the people and for the people, about each of US with his unique.  personal opinion, will, feelings.  It is close and clear for the audience, but certainly everyone will invest in the reading of the project something personal, something that will shut down and fill it with additional meanings.  and also helds workshops with leading masters of modern art of Ukraine and other countries.
