A Liminal Square
Portraits from Kiev
by Tatiana Grigorenko
Kiev, late February 2014: Just days earlier, a despised president had been successfully overthrown in a popular uprising. But the revolutionaries are not going home. On these barricades they had found strength, encountered death, discovered hope and solidarity, founded a community. They refuse to let the square be taken away from them. But what comes next? They stand sentinel, holding their breath. In this liminal space, after the fall of the old order and before the rise of a new one, anything is still possible.
These photographs were made with a large-format view camera, applying a slow, methodical process to the study of unfolding political events.

One of the key Irish artists of his generation, Micheal Farrell (1940-2000) left Ireland for Paris in 1971; like many exiles, however, he kept a sharp eye on his native country throughout his career. His ascerbic wit and subversive views combined with exceptional draughtsmanship and ability to incorporate different artistic strands literally transformed the face of Irish art.
