Lesia Khomenko is a Ukrainian multidisciplinary artist. In her works she deconstructs narrative image and transforms paintings into objects, installations, performances, and videos. Khomenko’s interests lie in comparing history and myths and revealing tools of visual manipulation. She graduated in 2004 from the National Academy of Fine Art and Architecture in Kyiv. She completed residencies at the Center for Contemporary Art in Kyiv (2005-2007) and LIA (Leipzig International Art; 2008) in Leipzig, Germany. She is a co-founder of HUDRADA, a curatorial union and self-educational community based in interdisciplinary cooperation.
Her works have been shown in several solo and group exhibitions, including Fridman Gallery's current group show, Forward Ground, as well as the First Kyiv Biennale of Contemporary Art Arsenale 2012, National Art Museum of Ukraine, White Box Gallery in New York, Museum of Modern Art (MUMOK) in Vienna, and Zacheta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. She was a 2009, 2011, and 2013 finalist of the Pinchuk Art Prize and a 2012 finalist of the Kazimir-Malewitzsch-Award.
