‘ When I was a girl, I didn’t always know what to dream about. I grew up on the outskirts of Kharkiv; hundreds of concrete Soviet blocks as far as you can see, and a sewage manhole to play on. From my neighbourhood, I didn’t know that being an artist was a job that anyone could have in the first place – let alone to imagine it possible for a girl like me.
Only now, as a woman – do I feel limitless. I’m dreaming of showing in museums, making films, writing books, weaving carpets, keeping bees, making sculptures – and I am.’
