This time my online kitchen was joined by a guest from overseas, Tatyana Ostapenko - a painter originally from Soviet Ukraine currently living and working in Portland, Oregon. Her paintings record the daily lives of people who usually don’t make it into official historical records. Through her body of work, Tatyana attempts to heal trans-generational trauma and questions traditions.

What stands behind the symbol of a Babushka or a Barbie? How does it feel to bring a meticulous studio work out onto a facade of a building? What's the smell of wild strawberries? That and more during this Kitchen Conversations!
