From the series “Ghosts”, 2018. Digital collage, 46 x 30 cm
In the series of works “Ghosts” the artist refers to the postwar destruction and modern landscapes of Minsk, problematizing the official canon of historical memory through the mythology and the “specter” of defeated fascism. Hramovich uses graphic elements of anti-fascist caricatures of Belarusian artists from the publication of the war times “We Will Crush the Fascist Viper”. These nondescript elements, removed from the context – the trajectory of the battle shell’s flight, the fragments of explosions and fragments of bodies, the hulls of the downed planes – remind us of the fear of destruction, of the ruins of Minsk.
