Driven by a desire to broaden their expertise, Maxim relocated to Odessa, where they ventured into YouTube and honed their skills working with actors and professional lighting.
Story of experience of risk, relocation and/or exile
Artist’s account: After losing my home, equipment and job, I began to travel in search of a place where I could get all this. That’s when I met Oleksiy and found out about his Retreat Art House project. I then began my residency in a very beautiful place, Skole, which is located in the mountains of the Lviv region. While I was there, I was able to restore my strength and get creative inspiration.
Projects created during the residency period
During the residency, Maxim documented his daily life and that of the other residents, as well as exhibitions openings for further editing and publication.
