Katya Libkind, ‘Where are Your Big Ears Dear Dead Grandma?,’ 2021 ‘A Letter From the Front’ (Лист з фронту), 2022

Libkind’s grandmother died at the age of 86 in Israel, choking on plain water. Reconstructing a nonexistent conversation on her birthday, the artist pays homage to her ancestor. 

This programme A Letter From the Front was originally commissioned and produced by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin, after the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. It is curated by Nikita Kadan with Giulia Colletti.
