In 'Over my (dead) body', the work of radical feminist FEMEN figure head OXANA SHACHKO (°1987, Ukraine) will be shown for the first time to the public at large, since her passing in 2018.
Alongside her many protest actions, Shachko painted iconoclastic icons according to the traditional rules of icon painting. By adding transgressive elements, she confronts religious dogmas with feminist and political messages.
The exhibition is a dialogue between the work of SHACHKO, SOFIE MULLER (BE) and KATYA EV (FR-RU). In addition to the common theme of the human body, there is a mutual use of natural materials: alabaster and blood (Muller) - wood and milk (Ev) - tempera, egg yolk and gold (Shachko)
