New Exhibition Opening: FRONTLIFELINE

Opening: Friday 4th April 6pm

Ranelagh Arts, 6 Ranelagh

FrontLifeLine is a photo exhibition of Julia Fobia, a Ukrainian photographer  (currently a combat medic in the Ukrainian army), and art interpretations of her photographs by young Ukrainian artists. This comparison is aimed to highlight the contrast between military and civilian life, and at the same time connect the two worlds by transforming the harsh reality into the expected peaceful future - with no armored vehicles, uniforms, and war. The artists participating in the exhibition also reflect how the war inevitably has an impact on everyone, no matter what they do, as they are 2 volunteers, a soldier, a veteran, and a refugee.

About the photographer:

Since 2014 Julia has been a paramedic volunteer with the Hospitalliers Battalion and later voluntarily joined the Marines battalion. Despite the circumstances, she has always found time for her passion – photography and has always found beauty in the least pleasant places. The photographs and Julia herself are another illustration of the dualism of everyday life in Ukraine.

About the curator:

As an artistic person, she has always tried to combine help and art, conducting art rehabilitation workshops for wounded veterans, organizing charitable art exhibitions for artists, and fundraising through selling her art.
