UFO, suburbs and books

Right near Lybidska metro is one of my favorite Kyiv’s examples of soviet modernism – “Tarilka”. It translates as a “plate” and looks like a levitating UFO 🙂

The architect of a building Florian Turiev, was born in Siberia, where his father, a genetic scientist, was exiled. Later he moved to Kyiv and studied at the Architecture Faculty of the Academy of Arts and took up painting, embracing a unique creative direction – the music of color. The Tarilka originally was designed as a futuristic venue for colormusical concerts; the proper acoustics required the room to be shaped as a plate.

I collect event posters. I got some new ones this month. The poster of Dziga Vertov’s classic Man with a movie camera, that was shown during the Cyclop festival of video poetry. I wanted to own the poster of this movie for a while already, I’m a big fan of Ukrainian avant-garde silent cinema. And the poster of the awards ceremony of 100 films in 100 minutes festival – an awesome festival of extremely short films.

Also I did some explorations of Kyiv’s deserted bedroom suburbs on a left coast. After they appeared in some recent music videos, it has doubled my interest in this area.
