Varvara Uhlik (1997) born in Dnipro, Ukraine, is a visual artist mainly working in the medium of photography and video. She studied Photography at the Royal Academy of Art, in The Hague (NL). In her practice, she often creates absurd and comic environments, as she says - it’s an easier way to process difficult feelings. By integrating fiction into reality - she focuses on the human psyche, society and the relationships within it. However, after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion, her work took a more personal approach, mainly focusing now on Ukraine and Ukrainian identity.
"Sonechko, Yak Ty?" photo series is a research on an identity of a modern woman grown in the post-Soviet environment - a research on my identity.
