Nadiia Rohozhyna and Ulyana Sukach-Kochetkova

аlЬmanaХ  is an alternative zine which is dedicated to Ukrainian poetry. Printed in Basel and hand-sewn, the book has already been exhibited at several exhibitions and was nominated at the Mystetskyi Arsenal. This collection contains selected poetry excerpts by Ivan Svitlychnyi, Olena Teliha, Vasyl Stus, Oleksandr Oles and Vadym Lesych. A number of poems by Uliana Sukach-Kochetkova, the book’s designer and layout designer, reflect on Russia’s Full-scale war against Ukraine. It has been illustrated by Nadiia Rohozhyna using ceramics, cardboard engravings, and drawings: «We find it significant that ceramics is used as a full-fledged participant that complements and saturates old texts with new narratives, while connecting them to the contemporary environment. It is important to note that all of the illustrations were created following the Russian invasion. Our aim was to preserve a certain gravity of experiences and thoughts that we wished to express in the most suitable manner for us, which is why we referred to it as “underground drama”.»
