Ukraine war: Wembley exhibition shows ‘beauty’ of country

The “real beauty of Ukraine and its people” is being showcased in a public art display in north-west London.

Visions of Home is a collection of photographs, installations and digital works by artists from the country. It forms part of an annual art trail just outside Wembley Stadium, which is visited by millions of people a year. The exhibition aims to showcase a “resilient and hopeful country”, and to keep the war in Ukraine in the public conscience, curators said.

Ukrainian-born artist and photographer Ira Lupu, who curated the exhibition said she was worried the “abundance” of news coverage may have left some people “desensitised and distant to the tragedy” resulting from the conflict.

My dream is to develop something that opens up the real beauty of Ukraine and its people – a different take to the casual display of Ukrainian bodies we see in the global media,” she said. The display includes a series of photographs capturing people living in the Ukrainian city of Odesa, where 21 people were killed in a Russian missile strike in July.
