On Orthodox Epiphany, which is celebrated on January 19, there is a tradition to plunge into ice-cold water, it has become popular again in Kyiv after the fall of Soviet Union.
There was some snow on the beginning of the week, but everything dried away on a next day, and it feels like spring again.
I was so inspired by reconstructions of Kazimir Malevich’s lectures (I wrote about it in here). I bought a book called ‘Malevitch’ by Jean-Claude Marcadé at Rodovid publishing house. I love their books, they have an awesome office on 17, Khreschatyk street (on the top floor) with a beautiful view from the window.
I went to a presentation of the book Art Barbican: Triangle 92, anthology at National Art Museum of Ukraine. During the Maidan revolution different artists had their own spot that was located on Khreschatyk Street, right in front of a Khreschatyk metro, they called it Art Barbican.
Many places in Kyiv take Halloween decorating quite seriously 🙂 During Halloween I’ve been at Molodist IFF awards party and after party, so I caught the Halloween spirit on the day after.
