The nucleus of Mariia Kulykivska’s work is her own body, its perpetuation, its transformation and its decay. Throughout her young oeuvre the idea of her body has transformed into architectural structures made from natural materials, such as salt, milk or sugar, dealing with ideas of production, construction and de-construction.
For at the exhibition of the 20 shortlisted artists for the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2013, Kulykivska created a new sculpture made of self-produced salt bricks she used to construct a landscape of 27 pillars, which by the very nature of the material and production will be in continuous decay.
