Oleh Kotsarev: “Contents of a Man’s Pocket” (LEE project) – a panel

What lies at the bottom of Oleh Kotsirev’s bottomless pocket? At first glance: “excise stamps / wine corks / leopard-print corsets / crumpled business cards / faded kisses from yesterday / withered under the sun / tickets to places with unknown names / scraps of other people’s books”. If we reach deeper and look more closely, we will also find touching memories, keen observations of everyday life, aphoristic sentences, linguistic games, surreal pictures – in short, the whole reality will be revealed to us as seen only by a child, transformed as only a poet can transform.
