One day more – Art installation
One day more is a powerful artwork by Ukrainian artist Yevgenia Belorusets commissioned by EUNIC Brussels and the European Cultural Foundation, to support those who are working and living in the war zone. Produced in Kharkiv, under exceptional circumstances of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine, the artwork is transported across borders, finding its temporary home in the Citizens' Garden of the European Parliament in Brussels, where it is accessible to the public from the 6 September until the 29 October 2022.
The table, a sign of solidarity, hopes to become a place of gathering and sharing, and a place to contemplate the words of Yevgenia Belorusets' wartime diary. With entries from the diary carved into the surfaces of the table, these experiences are engraved into the hard metal as well as that of collective memory.
"Called One day more, this installation allows me to ponder the weight of a single day in the warzone. Words become one with things. In this war, the ruins of objects and cities will bear witness together with human beings. The surface of this object becomes rusted over: memory grows less distinct, but it does not vanish" – shares Yevgenia Belorusets.
