Mary. Student. Kyiv.

We spotted Mary outside Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev. Mary is original from the city of Chernihiv in northern Ukraine, but studies graphic design in Kiev. She loves going to galleries with friends and to the many parties in Kiev. Her favourite club is Kyrylivska 41 – known as the “mysterious” club because it doesn’t promote its parties to the general public, post no signs outside its building and have no name. People only know it for its street name. Since its opening in August 2020 it has with its star line-ups of top international djs, queer-friendly approach and respect for all types of visitors introduced new quality to the capital’s electronic music scene attracting local ravers to its industrial building in the city’s old Podil District. Unfortunately Kyrylivska 41 was closed due to Covid-19 when we were exploring Kiev, but it is definitely a place we are going to check out in august when we return to this amazing city in eastern Europe.
