As artist in residence for the In Flanders Fields Museum, the Ukrainian artist Nikita Kadan (Kiev, 1982) created two art works which link the history of Ypres to the war he faces every day.

The Veil of Irpin & Tryvoha

Since July, the Veil of Irpin is on display at the In Flanders Fields Museum, while Tryvoha is installed at St Martin's Church.

On 26 September, Bart De Baere, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, talks to Nikita Kadan about his life and work. The M HKA not only owns work by Nikita Kadan, but also the installation 'In Flanders Fields' created by Berlinde De Bruyckere as artist in residence of In Flanders Fields Museum in 2000.

The artist talk is followed by a visit to the Ypres works of Nikita Kadan. A reception concludes the evening.
