展示会場

<ブリガリア 国際交流企画展>に参加。

私はブルガリア出身のアーティストです。1995年にイギリス、レディング大学の美術学部を卒業しました。
私はウォーター・ターワー・アート・フェスという、アーティスト主導で運営し、美術を介してコミュニケーションをはかる場を年々拡張しています。
また、西洋と東洋の文化の仲介役のように私自身を捉えており、ブルガリアや他国での日常生活の中でいかに自身の位置をみつけるか美術を通して探求します。
探求するテーマとして女性的な問題は私の重要な1つです。もう一つは経験やアイデア、記憶の共有です。近年、絵画や映像や写真の他に、日常的な状況からインスピレーションされたパフォーマンスを取り入れた作品を制作しています。

I am an artist from Bulgaria, have graduated Fine arts in Reading University, UK in 1995. During the years I have got to the point of extending my practice as an artist into making artist run initiative for making a platform for communication through the arts. The festival I have made is called Water tower art fest. I see myself as a mediator of the western culture and eastern in a way, dealing with art helps me situate myself better in the everyday life being in Bulgaria or elsewhere. The questions of feminine expression are an important one for me and I do explore it in my paintings and videos. Another topic of mine is the sharing – experience, ideas and memories.

So in the recent years in my art I incorporated performance and life situation as a main inspiration to the work I am doing with different mediums- painting , photography and video.
In my recent art practice, I have overextended myself into making an overall event structure integrating creation as part of living in urban areas. Throughout the years, different places are in the focus of my attention where art deals with different aesthetic functions, not necessarily connected with the common term of beauty. To deal with artistic interventions nowadays, you have to offer constructive change, with more than just a day resolutions via commercially engaged activities. My main objective into making these events has always been that art has a function in the society and we delegate it back wherever it has been misplaced.
