Marichka Lukianchuk is an art filmmaker from Ukraine. In 2021 she graduated from Interdisciplinary Arts Studies at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands. Her short films were featured in international film festivals. She currently holds a residency at Harun Farocki Institut, Berlin, and works on her middle length artistic film about the war in Ukraine. She also does visual arts and writing, and combines her artistic practice with teaching art film to youth.
Throughout her practice, Marichka creates complex worlds and layered narratives, which can be perceived on different levels. She fulfills it through working with symbolism and connecting personal and global in her approaches. Marichka sees opportunities that lay on the verge of art and psychology and believes in the importance of uncovering and connecting archetypal appearances to the times we are living in. She uses poetic and mythopoetic language to reach the audience and speak about social issues, individual and group experiences, and paths on a common human ground. Important aspects of her work are Ukrainian narratives and identity from historical and cultural perspectives.
