Institution of Unstable Thoughts (1996)
Based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
An interdisciplinary cultural organization founded in Kyiv in 1996 by Olexander Gnilitsky (1961-2009) and Lesja Zajac, who work between Kyiv and Munich.
Gnilitsky incorporates painting, video, poetry, drawing, photography, kinetics, and many other available means and methodologies into his practice.
Zajac is trained as a film and sound editor and brings her extensive knowledge of animation and new media into the collaborative projects she realizes with Olexander under the umbrella of the collective they founded together and with three other members, the Institution of Unstable Thoughts, which has been active since 1996.
Their ideas are fluid and well served by their adept use of both traditional and new media.
