The work was created on the basis of wall painting made by the author for OURS exhibition in Yermilov Center (Kharkiv, 2014). It portrays a tragic episode from the life of miners: the moment of the mine explosion, staying on the verge between life and death, and was created under the influence of dramatic events in Ukraine during the last two years. The Big Bang Practice metaphorically visualizes the social explosion, which happened in the country, a fracture which divided the people. The clash of perpendicular planes is like a clash of opposite opinions.
