Yana Bachynska is a Ukrainian visual artist, curator, and film director whose practice focuses on queering grand narratives. He uses the method of induction, which means going from individual experience to reach the collective one, trying to achieve wholeness within contradictions. His films have been screened at Marseille’s International Film Festival, Ibrida Festival delle Arti Intermediali, International Video Art Forum in Dammam, and many more. Yana’s artistic practice was supported by numerous stipend and residency programs: Cité Internationale des Arts, 2022, Gaude Polonia, 2021, Coming out of Isolation 2.0, 2020. After obtaining a master’s degree in philosophy from Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, he obtained a master’s degree from the Academy of Arts in Szczecin. During that time Yana was also a co-founder of the NGO Art Platform and a senior researcher at the Kyiv history museum.
