Focusing on the barrier of language and the complexity of translation, the work is about the impossibility of understanding and the unwillingness to understand. It is thus the borders and boundaries of language that Kirill Kto takes aim at. As he says, “there are two borders of misunderstanding: you see unfamiliar letters and you do not understand everything completely. Signifier and signified become equally incomprehensible. Even it’s a familiar language, still it is not clear”. Kirill’s work, although colourful and bright, is in fact the symbol of alienation.
