Lesia Khomenko

Lesia Khomenko is a multidisciplinary artist who reconsiders the role of painting—deconstructing narrative images and transforming paintings into objects, installations, performances, or videos. Her interest lies in revealing tools of visual manipulation in the context of history-making and myth-making. She graduated from the National Academy of Fine Art and Architecture in Kyiv in 2004. A member of R.E.P. group since 2004, she is also a cofounder of the curatorial union HUDRADA, a self-educational community based on interdisciplinary cooperation. Khomenko is an initiator and program director of the Contemporary Art course at the Kyiv Academy of Media Arts. Her works have been shown in many exhibitions, including at the Lviv Municipal Art Center (2021), PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv (2018), MNAC, Bucharest (2016), and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki (2015).
