Palazzo Papadopoli: Ukrainian Pavilion. The PinchukArtCentre and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Ukraine presented the Steppes of Dreamers art-project in Palazzo Papadopoli. The exhibition was Commissioned by Peter Doroshenko of the PinchukArtCentre, curated by Wladimir Klitschko and created by Illya Chichkan (Ukraine) and Mihara Yasuhiro (Japan). Life is like a film. The many things that happen and the many forms that life takes on – are of an ephemeral nature. They are all fleeting. Things, events, situations, thoughts, emotions, desires, ambitions, fears, drama…they all come, pretend to be all-important, and before you know it they are gone, dissolved into the nothingness out of which they came. Were they ever real? Were they ever more than a dream? Steppes of Dreamers, creates the opportunity for all visitors to produce their own short mental movies. Just like the title of the Biennale, Making Worlds, suggests, Steppes of Dreamers helps move all into discovering who they are in the present world.
