Izyum to Liverpool by Ukrainian artist Katya Buchatska.

Take yourself on a poignant train journey with this multi-channel video installation from Ukrainian artist Katya Buchatska. Filmed in real-time, this is an extraordinary window into the journey of escape many Ukrainians have taken since the full-scale Russian invasion in February 2022. You will start with views of liberated Ukrainian regions moving to apparently stiller Western cities.

Izyum to Liverpool is about the fragility of our environment, our lives and the landscape surrounding us. It is about the war in Ukraine. It is about something that can happen anywhere. Normal life can be changed in just one moment.

This work is about the loss of certainties. A one-way journey provoking a shift in the state of mind. Even if you are in a safe environment farther away from the front line, this feeling of loss and uncertainty stays with you.
