EVERYTHING IS CLEAR — EVERYTHING IS WRONG, 2023
Pencil on paper, 42 × 59,4 cm
The basis of the two drawings is the phrase in Russian "Everything is not so clear". Russian propaganda uses it when the government enacts vile policies. The most blatant example is Russian invasion to Ukraine. Yes, BUT everything is not so clear: NATO provoked us to do it, defending the Russian people in Donbas was vital, if we had not attacked, Ukraine would have attacked us first.
The text is written on two different images of the sky. In the first drawing, a bird flies, whilst in the second, an Iranian Shahed drone, commonly used by the Russian military for attacks in Ukraine.
Clouds obscure parts of the sentance "Everything is not so clear". So the viewer can read in the first image, "Everything is clear", following the second drawing with, "Everything is wrong".
