20 August 2019


On August 20, 2019, the presentation of an international project on preservation of private memory in digital culture "SOUND iD *heritage of Volodymyr Perzhylo" took place.

Within the SOUND iD project, it was created an open online mediaarchive of Ukraine folklore collected within Ukraine, Poland, Russia (Zhovtyi Klyn) that includes audio and video recordings inaccessible before. 

Volodymyr Perzhylo (1939-2018) was a singer, a composer, a conductor, ethnographer, and folk lore expert, a priest. He was born in the town of Oleshychi,  Lubachiv district, Rzesow region (Poland). As a 9-year-old, in 1946, after the "Operation Vistula," Volodymyr and his family were deported to the Soviet Ukraine and settled down in the village of Mali Lanky of Peremyshliany district. He dedicated his life to research and preservation of Ukrainian national lifestyle and folk lore.

Another part of the project is the residency that brings together curators, artists, and researchers from 4 countries such as Belarus, Slovakia, Poland, and Ukraine. They include artists and researchers interested in implementing projects at the intersection of new media art and promotion of cultural heritage. 

At the presentation, curators and residents shared their experience of implementing the project and talked about current approaches to address archive materials and records.
