Yana Bachynska aka Jan Bačynsjkyj

Yana Bachynska aka Jan Bačynsjkyj (born 1991 in Lviv) is a Ukrainian visual artist, curator, and film director whose practice focuses on queering grand narratives. He uses the method of induction, which means going from individual experience to reach the collective one, trying to achieve wholeness within contradictions. He graduated in philosophy from the National University of Taras Shevchenko in Kyiv (2013) and multimedia at the Academy of Art in Szczecin (2019). He is the co-founder of Queer.War.Archive (2024) and Art Platform (2013) through which he was actively involved in inhibiting the processes of gentrification by creating a non-governmental cultural center.
