This year the theme of the project – “I Think I go into our garden” and, according to the organizers, the Biennale map is a metaphor of the Botanical garden. A large part of the spaces involved in the Biennale, has never (or almost never) used for exhibiting contemporary art projects. Thus, the organizers try to say the problem of lack in Kharkiv platforms for art projects and to help cultural and educational institutions to find new ideas for development.
“It’s a bit like “shadow “Mriya” – not yet formally launched, the Biennale is already living, accumulates and organizes the field of meanings around it: this garden is gradually gaining more clear and expressive shape,” said Darin Skrynnik-Miska, sakuradori project.
