The PinchukArtCentre (Kiev, Ukraine) presents the exhibition of 20 shortlisted artists for the 5th edition of the PinchukArtCentre Prize, a nationwide prize for young Ukrainian artists, and the solo exhibition by Dineo Seshe Bopape, the Main Prize winner of the Future Generation Art Prize 2017.

The nominees for the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 are: Mykhailo Alekseienko, Iuliana Golub, Taras Kamennoi, Mykola Karabinovych, Pavlo Khailo, Alina Kleitman, Vitalii Kokhan, Yulia Krivich, Sasha Kurmaz, Larion Lozovyi, Roman Mikhaylov, Oleg Perkowsky, Sergii Radkevych, Yevgen Samborsky, Dmytro Starusiev, Ivan Svitlychnyi, Kateryna Yermolaeva, Anna Zvyagintseva and groups: Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey, Revkovskiy and Rachinskiy.

The exhibition focuses on the presentation of new works, produced with the support of the PinchukArtCentre. The range of subjects in the show is wide. Some artists deal with socio-political narratives of Ukraine as a country in conflict and the impact on its people. Others draw from self-exploration through the use of material, form and media. A third common subject in some of the shortlisted positions is the search towards future and the constructions of utopias.

The winners of the Prize will be announced by the International Jury at the award ceremony in April, 2018. The winner of the Main Prize will be automatically included in the shortlist of the Future Generation Art Prize 2019—an international art prize for young artists, established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009.

The first solo exhibition in Eastern Europe by Dineo Seshee Bopape (South Africa) includes a major soil installation specially produced for the PinchukArtCentre.

The new monumental earth piece reminds, in form, of ancient spiritual places and draws upon traditional fertility iconography. Ukrainian soil is used in a systematic formal transformation. The earth moves from suggesting human architectural construction into the natural flow of a topographical landscape, evoking the lost presence of water, to finally glide into a quiet bed of soil. On top of that Bopape plays with herbs, crystals, clay, gold-leaf and special collected samples of earth coming from a dozen of spiritual places around the world. The Ukrainian Soil becomes a host for synergies of signs, beliefs, energies and materials for which our language lacks an essential vocabulary.

Dineo Seshee Bopape was awarded the Main Prize of the 4th edition of the Future Generation Art Prize. Her art works were presented as a part of The Future Generation Art Prize @ Venice 2017 exhibition—an official Collateral Event of the 57th Venice Biennale organised by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and the PinchukArtCentre.
