This 3D exhibition by the photographer Oleksandr Chekmeniov will present online two series of works created in a closed psychiatric hospital in Ovruch in the late '90s: a colour series (reportage) and a black and white one (staged portraits). The exhibition will question the boundary between pathology and normality, and will show the social life and interaction in a psychiatric hospital as a social institution on the one hand, and the coercion and imprisonment of a closed institution on the other.

 

The event will be available online at DOCUSPACE. Everyone will be able to visit the exhibition virtually in the IZONE creative space. You can view the exhibition both on the computer screen in the browser, and the immersive version, using VR-glasses for the fully immersive experience.

The event will include audio descriptions, and be accessible for blind people and people with visual impairments.
