«Tailings Dam» is a solo exhibition by Daniil Revkovskiy and Andriy Rachinskiy as part of PAC UA. PAC UA is a programme aimed at commissioning new works by Ukrainian artists by investing in creation and providing curatorial and institutional support.
The new work by Daniil Revkovskiy and Andriy Rachinskiy takes the shape of a Museum of Human Civilisation which is established in the future after humans go extinct. The Museum is dedicated to the future archaeology of a tailings dam in Kryvy Rih. A tailings dam is a system of special facilities for storing radioactive, toxic and other non-recyclable waste from mineral processing. The work touches upon the issue of man's responsibility for natural resources and chimeric forms that the imprint of human activity on Earth may acquire.
