Only careful examination of the distorted heads reveals behind the outer layer completely different, classical anthropomorphic images. These are etude sculptural portraits of friends and relatives of the artist, created during the last fifteen years. All this time they stood on the shelves of the artist’s studio, and finally they were captured here with translucent plastic. Over time, this kind of process eventually happens in our memory. According to Nazar Bilyk, such “lamination” documents personal memories and shows that knowledge of even a close person is always vague and incomplete, and can only be obtained by getting rid of perception stereotypes.
