[Celestial Inheritance] – Halina Lazarchuk


1 in stock

“Celestial Inheritance” plunges deeply into the Soviet era, where the notion of a “happy” childhood was cultivated as part of the prevailing ideology. Yet, the artist keenly explores the facets of this culture, unveiling the darker undercurrents that often remained concealed behind the scenes.

The black pioneer dresses and scarlet tights not only symbolize unity and ideological indoctrination but also the shackles placed upon the children. These limitations on freedom of speech and individual expression are poignantly captured within the fabric, where children were deprived of the autonomy to make choices and express themselves.

The red pioneer ties, deliberately reimagined on the canvas, can be interpreted as symbols of repression and restrictions that were imposed on the society during the Soviet era. These symbols highlight the lack of freedom and limited access to diversity, encompassing toys and clothing, ultimately restricting the children’s opportunities for self-expression.

The human skull cradled in the hands of one of the pioneers emphasizes the somber influence of the Soviet system, where transgressors faced severe consequences. It serves as a stark reminder of the pressure and fear that loomed over the Soviet culture, affecting every individual.

“Celestial Inheritance” invites the viewer to reflect upon childhood in the USSR and the concealed aspects that existed beneath the facade of the cult of a “happy” childhood. It draws attention to the restrictions, the absence of freedom of speech and choice, and the darker facets of the Soviet system that still cast a shadow on modern society. Simultaneously, the painting underscores the importance of safeguarding freedom and individuality and the imperative to explore and comprehend the past to prevent a repetition of its errors.
