“Making Sense” is an online exhibition using a 3D rendered space to showcase a collection of digital and oil paintings, pastels, drawings, sound pieces and video artworks, as well as a live video stream on Twitch scheduled for 15 January which will discuss the art making process including a multilingual chat section for interconnectivity and audience engagement.
Emiliya Shcherbak, Feel the Sunset
The artworks are reflective of one class of students working in mediums that they are naturally drawn to, and for a majority are purely personal works that did not belong priorly to another exhibit, or created for a 3rd person audience. They are excerpts from a collective of young, progressive artists showcasing pieces as they develop.

Since this collective is multicultural, it is beneficial in this case to have an online exhibit during the pandemic as it gives a strong global perspective on where different artists are coming from, without the inhibitor of having to be fully immersed - to be in the country the artist is working from.
Evgeniia Tiulina, Attachment Issues
Coming out of a year when interaction had become limited, learning new ways to connect and showcase works became a focus for young artists. Many of the artworks featured follow these themes of “disconnect”, isolated individuals captured in frame. Although they all differ stylistically, they come together as a collection of doubts and as acts of self-realisation.
Aliya Aliyeva, Wonderland
We also wished to include some live events, to bring more of a sense of time - considering we are all in different time zones - and space to the collection. To give the viewer a chance encounter with the artists, to see some process, and act as a substitute for the lack of in-person interaction that has carried over to 2021.
