In Memoriam Wassyl Slipak

Go to: VASA Front Page #32

Wassyl Slipak was an opera singer from Ukraine, a soloist at Paris National Opera, who volunteered to defend his homeland when the war in eastern Ukrainestarted in 2014 started.

He was killed by a sniper on June 29, 2016.

Video artist Yaroslav Kostenko and painter Iryna Ilyinska dedicated their project to Wassyl Slipak.

Iryna Ilyinska’s Singing diptych is a painting depiction of a traditional Ukrainian carpet with nightingales and flowers. Nightingales are the best singing talents among birds, but birds are also associated with human souls descending down to the Earth from heaven. The depiction of a rose is a symbol of the Sun, love and life. The artist uses the colors of traditional ornament to underpin the symbolic values of his work.

The video projection is accompanied by the piece compossed by the Viennese composer Karlheinz Essl (Mozart-Lamento), a recording of nightingale’s singing, sounds of machine gun shots and fragments of an aria sung by Wassyl Slipak.
