The couple of authors Vika Shumskaya and Vlad Yurashko in their exhibition project titled No Yesterday / No Tomorow examine the parables of violence in the collective consciousness, as well as the tendency of its keeping and museification. The authors draw on personal experience ranging from the end of the Soviet empire and consequential changes. For Vlad Yurashko, this period was marked by his work in army. Unflattering reality of army life, the part of which is the effort for dominance, accompanied by bullying and humiliation, is the frequent theme of his sculptures and paintings. He shows the gradual degradation of humanity in the environment, which presents a metaphor for the empire fall.
Some works of Vika Shumskaya are a direct reaction to the presence: the author was directly affected by the conflict which had broken out in 2014 in Ukraine, as several members of her family died during the conflict.
Using different media, from area paintings to objects representing old street signs, they transform interior to a special country. By its nature and history, the synagogue area becomes the part of the work where the authors are searching for a way from the circle of violence, oppression, and totalitarian regimes. They encourage a dialogue between the past and possible future because yesterday was not soon enough and tomorrow might not ever come to pass, the only option is to do so today.
