Julia Fareniuk | Chloe

Chloe was born in 1996 in Kyiv. In 2016, she began researching text layers of information and made her first collages. She graduated from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv with a degree in Psychology in 2017 and in 2019, created a series of collages «Moomy» and «Beloved», in which the collage describes the reality of poetry and fairy tales.
In 2020, she began making large-format collages without words, in which she tried to find a safe place in virtual reality. In the fall of 2020, Chloe began to explore time, combining visual images, and the following year began participating in the Kyiv Collage Meetings, CUTOUT FESTIVAL and Kyiv Collage Collective. Today, she uses the collage technique as the way that best conveys the feeling of excess information in the world and can convey the impression of nonlinearity of time. Chloe's main sources of inspiration are fresh issues of Vogue magazines, ancient philosophy, lectures by Merab Mamardashvili and the artistic heritage of culture. Chloe is also fond of motion design and works in the technique of digital absurdity.

Exhibitions:
2021 – Group exhibition in the CUTOUT COLLAGE STUDIO, (Kyiv, Ukraine)
2021 – Festival of New Ukrainian Culture «SPALAKH», (Kyiv, Ukraine)

In 2017, I started making sketch collages to have fun, to relieve stress from the foam of days. Each collage created was an intermezzo.
I was inspired by the opportunity to change the message and express my opinion in the words of others.
It reminded me of the materialization of fantasies. But the main goal was to find the absurd through the poeticization of the cargo cult.

Since October 2020, the size of collages has increased significantly, I gave up the text. I sought to build my collage reality.
It was an immersion in the controllability of the paper world, which became a memory, an escape into the environment
inherent in a particular idea. My large collages are like maps with built-in space, absurd unity.

In the spring of 2021 it returned to A4 / A3 format. I am now exploring the phenomenon of the glass partition:
the phenomenon of people's blindness to what is actually there. This phenomenon is central to the experience I have.

Collage - part of the direction of the aesthetics of relationships. Its format involves communication over time. In my works I consider social themes, the theme of the lost and the significance of the actual. I enter into a dialogue with the viewer. I do not have the dogma I want to convey. Furthermore, I suggest combinations, responding to which, you can become part of the creative process.
