The classic training in painting and drawing at the National Academy of Visual Arts Kyiv comprises the study of the human body using the example of ancient sculptures. Their standard bodily proportions should train the artistic gaze in the ability to transpose what is seen into a depiction of the human being. Students learn based on uniform, supposedly universal and timeless male bodies, not on particular bodies or those marked by history and the present. From each of these objects of study, Lada Nakonechna molded one body part, the knee, in paper mâché.
