This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition “Reality of Illusion. Oleksander Hnylytsky” (February 23 — March 26, 2017).

The exhibition was constructed not as a simple final retrospection. It had a specific conceptual core, reflected in the title – the reality and illusiveness of the world in their intermutation and convergence. It is this core that combines incredible variety into a cohesive artistic world of Oleksandr Hnylytsky. The artistic path was depicted not in the linear form, but in the conceptual form instead – the exhibition was disintegrated like a puzzle where separate fragments, cycles, blocks and meanings joined and intertwined with unexpected logic, generating a complicated “exhibitional performance.”
