Nataliya Zuban (UA) is intimately familiar with clay. Hailing from Opishne, the centre of the Ukrainian ceramics production, she grew up surrounded by traditional pottery and folklore-inspired sculptures. The limitations of time-honoured techniques instilled Zuban with a lasting desire to experiment. After a MFA at the Lviv National Academy of Art and several international residencies, she obtained a PhD at Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland. At ekwc, Zuban has been working on a large commission for a Danish sculpture park inspired by the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals. The two-meter-tall abstract column of interconnected vertical tubes is open to the sky, allowing rain to fill the work. Because the tubes are like corresponding vessels, water levels in all tubes will be equal, in reference to the goal of achieving gender equality. You can see Zuban’s sculpture at the Anneberg Kulturpark in Nykøbing Sjælland, Denmark.
