Anton Baibakov and Oleg Sosnov - In Search of Silence

The project is a collaboration between composer and sound artist Anton Baibakov and director, curator and collector Oleg Sosnov. It is a search for a universal language, a means of expression which aims to restart the mechanism of stopping war.

"In Search of Silence" is a powerful and thought-provoking audiovisual triptych that explores the impact of the war in Ukraine on individuals and communities. The project brings together the work of three Ukrainian photographers - Oleksandr Glyadyelov, Maksym Dondyuk, and Vladyslav Krasnoshchok - who have documented historical events since the start of the full-scale invasion.

The expansive soundtrack created by Anton Baibakov emphasizes the monotony of absolute evil and the emptiness that war leaves behind, counteracted by the deprivation of sensitivity and empathy that can come from perceiving the world solely through news feeds.
