In Mystery and Whimsey, Ukranian-born fiber and mixed-media artist Zaryana Bezu recalls her childhood in Kyiv, spent wandering the city’s aged, curved streets that were filled the legends, myths, and stories from Ukrainian folklore. Bezu’s installation of contextualized sculptures and poetry brings forth nature’s magnificent mystery that was called upon for guidance and protection and is a lens for understanding the complexity of human nature.
