Although dreams are subjective, Illya Chichkan and Mihara Yashiro at the Ukrainian Pavilion recreated the sense of displacement elicited by dreams. The lower level of the offsite pavilion was filled with sand while the upper level was left intact, lights dimmed, shutters closed – letting no outside light in – and filling sporadically with fog. The only real movement in the otherwise stagnant rooms came from two large kinetic works clanging and clashing, and the quiet whir and blur of the sweet, almost prepubescent girl roller-skating through the 18th century rooms. I?m still wondering how Wladimir Klitschko, who is the reigning World Heavyweight Boxing champion, decided to curate such a subtle and refined pavilion.
