What are barricades?

Artist Blog by Julia Kafizova

Until recently, I didn't take it seriously. As a child, when we played different games, we liked to build structures we called "halabuda". Sometimes we called them barricades, and we would hide in them for refuge. But we did not understand why we needed to protect ourselves; we led carefree lives as children. Only now, it has become clearer to me what barricades represent. My friend Arsen and I tried to build "barricades". Maybe they are not so sturdy, but we are trying to move forward. This series was created with my friend Arsen Malashchuk (@arsenmalash) in November 2022.
