The new ex­hi­bi­tion at Bursa Gallery was cre­ated by Ukrainian con­tem­po­rary artists in col­lab­o­ra­tion with civic ac­tivists. “De­green­ing” fea­tures pho­to­graphs of how Kyiv pub­lic util­i­ties have dam­aged green spots by trim­ming or felling trees, as well as dig­ging up or as­phalt­ing lawns. The ex­hi­bi­tion’s creators want to raise the is­sue of plant­ing green­ery in Ukraine: It is rather con­sid­ered as a dec­o­ra­tion than a source of oxy­gen, which also strength­ens the soil and pro­vides shadow in ur­ban ar­eas.

“De­green­ing.” Bursa Gallery (11B Kos­tiantynivska St.) Jan. 17 - Feb. 10. Tue-Sun. 12-8 p.m. Free
