Now there is a war unleashed by the government of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, a monstrous genocide of the Ukrainian people is taking place. In these circumstances, we cannot work here, that is, make art and participate in exhibitions — not because we want to publicly complain about our questionably difficult life, but because for us making art and participating in exhibitions here is simply not possible - neither psychologically nor ethically. This is our statement about conscious silence on the territory of Russia during the war.
