A phenomenon which occurs whenever a word of one language has no correspondence in another language,” – that is the definition of the concept of “lacuna” in linguistics. In other words “lacunae” are the gaps in the lexical system

This made me wonder that even in the one given language there are many omissions, problems, lacunae in the mutual understanding between people. Is it possible to communicate without distortion? Is language as a tool suitable for this?

It reminds me of the attempts to inform extraterrestrial civilizations about humanity by sending different media, symbols, signals into space without even having any idea who is the recipient. In my project, I reflect on the voids and contradictions that arise from human relationships.

Katya Yanova is an artist working with various media, including photography, small sculpture, installation, video and sound.

In her artistic practice, she explores the image of the modern person who experiences emotional instability. She analyzes the nature of sensory experience, revolving around truthfulness and fiction.  Recent projects address the role of cultural identity and collective trauma.
