Raycho Stanev UTOPIA, LANGUAGE AND IMAGE
UTOPIA, LANGUAGE AND IMAGE
24 January – 9 February
opening: 24 January, 19:00
23 Marko Balabanov St, Varna, Contemporary Space
What new knowledge do you obtain when you move to a new place? Is it possible to catch the unattainable only by changing your surroundings? What kind of language we use to express ourselves. The thought is generated, structured, materialised, transformed into movement. A kind of movement that creates an image of the wind and will lead you to a childhood utopia and its transformation in time. A composition of static objects that create a feeling of movement in the mind of the viewer, thus constructing a new temporary space. Utopia.
The installation consists of three parts:
1. Language – a foil stroke against a wall illustrating the thought.
2. Image – video documenting the “as-if-it-were-the-wind”.
3. Utopia – a series of nine objects related to the cosmic utopias of the childhood.
