Yulia Belyaeva is a Ukrainian artist who works with a wide range of media, including virtual reality, digital art and neon. She lives and works in Kyiv. In her artworks, Belyaeva touches on various socially important topics, such as new technologies and humanism, truth and post-truth, the contradictions of post-totalitarian society. The artist combines simple forms with complex themes, paying special attention to the composition.

“We live in an era of globalization and of the surcharge of information. Environmental crisis with its consequences on the soul is there. Nevertheless, the Man remains this being who wonders about ideas concerning Eternal and Beauty,” says Julia.

The purpose of her artistic work is to question these themes in documentary or intimate form using different mediums.




Video work “Rebirths” shows the development of the image in sculpture. I used scanned copies of famous sculptures: from the Venus of Willendorf to a porcelain statuette of the Soviet period. The video demonstrates that at all stages of human development, the global issues of life, beauty, struggle, and death were united. We can say that these themes unify times and epochs; they flow, develop, die and are born again.

It seems to me that a person in a difficult psychological state should look at their feelings and themselves globally, to understand that they are not the only one concerned with such issues as health, happiness, love, death. These feelings have always been reflected in art, it was with the help of art that a person transcended their fears and experiences. The video is also educational, because with the help of 3D technology it is much easier to acquaint the viewer with the world's masterpieces of sculpture. I deliberately did not include modern sculpture in this work, because I wanted to show something unifying, intuitively familiar to many people.
