Annete Sagal
Kyiv, Ukraine


As an artist and individual, I strive for equality, stability, and sustainable life. Now, at the time of war, I feel the need to protect and promote myself as an artist and do the same for Ukrainian culture and artists as a curator. I consider myself an ambassador of the Ukrainian culture, with collage art in particular. Making art is, first, a conversation with myself. I listen, learn, negotiate with my inner child, and together we collaborate to produce a work of art in the form of collage, photography, poem, or even a sensual mixing of two tracks.

I am working with the problematics of sensitivity, human rights, injustice, feminism, and also the good and beautiful side of life. We are living in uncertain times, and I believe that ART is an occupation that will save the young generation.
