Anna Sarvira @ MOMA
Over two weeks ago, MOMA asked Anna Sarvira – a Ukrainian graphic artist and curator, based in Kyiv – to build a story about daily life in the Ukraine, when war was still ‘just’ a looming threat.
“The city feels tense and anxious,” Sarvira told MOMA, “maybe because of the conversations—people are talking about the survival kits, bombs, and Russian troops. Or maybe because of facial expressions—you can see the anxiety in people’s eyes. Or maybe because in the last few months there are fewer people in the streets and cars on the roads.”
You can see Sarvira’s striking work in the MOMA link below. Blessedly, as you’ll note in Sarvira’s Instagram, she made it out of the country alive. ‘I’m safe and fine, I’m out of Ukraine now. But I feel so much pain and anger! And so helpless’.
