This is an invitation project. The guest reception project and the project of memories of the era of space competitions between the countries that fought for the world championship. Nowadays, we are accustomed to the idea that outer space can be accessible to everyone if you are rich enough and physically healthy. The world-famous entrepreneur Elon Musk, who creates electric cars, develops new technologies and moves the whole world into the future, reminds us that we can all dream, and no matter how vast our dreams, they can come true! We would like to personally thank Ilona for the opportunity to see how his dreams come true in reality, it inspires us to our desire to create, and we take this opportunity to visit the museum. The Kmytiv Museum will become a home that hosts guests from space for a while. In the company of astronauts: Alan B. Shepard - Jr., Neil Armstrong, John Glen Jr., Dr. Sally Ride, Dr. Gion S. Blueford - Jr., and cosmonauts: Yuri Gagarin, Valentina Tereshkova, Herman Titov, Aleksey Leonov, Leonid Kadenyuk. Each of them has come a long and long way, from a dreamer as a child to a real hero - the conqueror of the universe. We will welcome the guest according to the Ukrainian tradition with an open soul and bread. A series of audio sculptures will complement the journey into the cosmic world of art, which will immerse the visitors of the exhibition in the atmosphere of flight and conquest of unknown spaces of the vast universe.
We hope that Elon Musk will probably be a traveler in our region and, if possible, visit the party.
The idea of creating the project belongs to the artist Oleg Kharch. - “Even in my early teens, I had a desire to learn about astronomy and space. Stars, moon, black holes in distant nebulae attracted my attention. And of course the superhumans are astronauts. They were important and heroic because they reached out to space. It occurred to me that I had long since become an adult, and never brought myself closer to that childhood dream. And I will no longer see the starry sky up close. So I decided to bring them closer to myself in a different way - to invite all the astronauts to visit. Now Elon Musk has become a kind of bridge to his childhood dream. When, a simple boy from an unknown land becomes a successful conqueror of space in far and near America. Unknown. Will he hear my invitation - “Wellcome Elon Musk! Ласкаво просимо Ілон Маск! ”. But I want to remember the conquerors of the vast expanses of the universe. We have no right to forget about them.
