ARTIST STATEMENT

I work in the field of "invisual " art  in sociopolitical and  cultural  context focused on the Bulgarian  frame work. I express the unacceptable condition of totalitaristic  monopoly on the Bulgarian art scene. I make my graphics from my old period animated and intervened  with objects, drawings, fire, contemporary writing, corresponding with the exhibited space. I do also performances and actions which show with sense of humour and a bit of sarcasm the present situation of an artist in Bulgaria who is independent  and not in the cage of art system or monopoly. My installations  are result of my research of artistic freedom and hope to change the situation through artist interactions and collaborations.
