заради життя

We often see volunteers who, with the help of weapons, raise funds to help the military. The artists in their work rethinking what was once a weapon and killed or protected people. Now it is all a tool for drawing attention to war, a war that has become part of our everyday life. I am glad that Mariupol Reborn brings together more and more people and helps to embody the projects directly related to Mariupol, but which are an integral part of our resistance to russian aggression.

The concept of the exhibition reflects the belief that weapons are a tool for both destruction and protection. Ukrainian soldiers use it to preserve life - the protection of our country and the people. Flowers, plants and other traditional tubes and sleeves are once again reminded of the insurmountability of life and hope for the Renaissance.

Заради життя

Головна мета виставки «Заради життя» – зібрати кошти для 25 батальйону 47 бригади, яка протистоїть ворогу на Авдіївському напрямку. Експозиція спонукає людей шукати промінь світла серед темряви, зокрема і через мистецтво, що допомагає зводити мости між сьогоденням і майбутнім над проваллям війни.
