УYY is an acronym for Україна Yelena Yemchuk, meaning ‘Ukraine’ in the Slavic language followed by the name of the author of this book, born in Kiev. Given the misleading similarity between У and Y, the title may seem at first glance to be ‘why-why-why’. The publishing project brings together the author’s photographs, paintings and personal archive to bring out the essential elements of her wide-ranging and heterogeneous research. The time of the story is disjointed in fragmented visions, fleeting appearances and games of shadows. Україна Yelena Yemchuk is like a daydream that unfolds backwards. From the last to the first, each chapter provides an improvised compass to avoid getting lost in a labyrinth of exceptions and coincidences. The book is an invitation to step outside the boundaries of common sense, to surrender to the vertigo of memory, to engage in an inner, intimate dialogue with the author through images.
