Lesia Khomenko

Lesia Khomenko (b. 1980, Kyiv) is a Ukrainian multidisciplinary artist that reconsiders the role of a painting medium and constructs complex critical statements around it. In her practice, Khomenko deconstructs narrative images and transforms paintings into objects, installations, performances, or videos. Her interest lies in comparing history and myths and revealing tools of visual manipulation. She has been a member of the R.E.P. group since 2004. Co-founder of a curatorial union HUDRADA, a self-educational community based on interdisciplinary cooperation. She was a 2009, 2011, and 2013 finalist of the PinchukArtCentre Prize and a 2012 finalist of the Kazimir Malevich Artist Award. An initiator, a tutor, and a programme director of the Contemporary Art course at Kyiv Academy of Media Arts.
