SELF-HARM / САМОНАРАНЯВАНЕ

Solo exhibition photography by Ivaylo Stoimenov 22.11.2022 -09.12.2022 / САМОНАРАНЯВАНЕ Самостоятелна изложба фотографии на Ивайло Стоименов 22.11.2022 - 09.12.2022

A roam of the unconscious, before the ego takes place.

Всеки участник получава негативна плака, върху която оставя своя отпечатък. Нараняването се случва предварително, преди появата на образа, което позволява първично, инстинктивно действие, допир до неосъзнатото. Несенсибилизиран филм позволява пълно отделяне на образа от околното. Инфрачервена светлина засилва концентрацията, разкривайки характерния за серията поглед,
и създава високо контрастно изображение. / Each participant receives a negative plaque(light sensitive film), on which they are to leave their mark. This way the “harm” comes before the image is taken, before the self even exists. This allows for pure, instinctive action, working as a kind of unconscious therapy, outside the boundaries of the ego. Blue-sensitive emulsion allows for complete separation of the image from the background.
Bright infrared light increases concentration, exposing the series’s characteristic look and creating a distinctive high-contrast image.

Introspection / Интроспекция

Solo exhibition, painting, by Vasil Vassilev-Vaso in [a] cube contemporary gallery. The vernissage is from 17:30 to 20:00 on October 20th. The exhibition will run until November 2, 2022.
The artist about his exhibition:
Introspection is a contemplation of the self, it is an observation of things within the self, a kind of reflection of feelings and emotions... which quite predictably led to this exhibition. My new works are my new reading of painting as a matter, as an experiment, and a conscious search for the spiritual invisible substance between the corruptible and the incorruptible... these things are the main problem that preoccupies me at the moment...

Самостоятелна изложба, живопис, на Васил Василев- Васо в галерия [a] cube contemporary. Вернисажът е от 17:30 до 20;00 часа на 20 ти октомври. Изложбата ще продължи до 2 ноември 2022г.
Артистът за изложбата си:
Интроспекция е съзерцаване на собственото Аз,  това е наблюдение на неща вътре в самия себе си, вид рефлексия на чувства и емоции… които съвсем предвидимо доведоха и до тази изложба. Новите ми творби, са с мой нов прочит за живописта като материя, като експеримент, и съзнателно търсене на духовната невидима субстанция между тленното и нетленното... тези неща са главния проблем който ме занимава в момента...

Синкретично / Syncretic

Solo exhibition by Svetlozar Stoqnov-Svesto / Самостоятелна изложба на Светлозар Стоянов-Свесто 29.09.2022 / 15.10.2022

The author about his exhibition:

I follow my life path and feel gratitude when it touches the endless spiral of art. The reflections from this touch, have different manifestations, but can be gathered in one place, in a syncretic implication. 

Syncretic is the name of an exhibition featuring painterly abstractions, photographic prints and short poetic texts that share common intersections - the artist, the topos, the associative references between them. 

The pictorial abstractions, in the context of this concept, deliberately reflect a rather broad pictorial register - from more typical and balanced compositions to more challenging and eccentric plastic experiments. The eclectic suggestion is reinforced by the deliberate use of a variety of technical approaches in the construction of the individual works.
A syncretic relationship between image and text was already present in my first exhibitions - Gallery of the SBH, Shumen 1993, Nava Gallery, Sofia, 1994, etc. Now I again use short authorial texts, which I avoid calling poetry because I do not perceive myself as a poet, but only as a seeker of intellectual extrapolation. 
The series of artistic, photographic finds called "Accidental Painting" I also started as a joke, as a panacea against the pandemic. The serious conclusions came a little later, when I realized that even in the most absurd, ugly and creepy places, there can be hidden bits of a noble aesthetic. As long as you find it, feel it and frame it... 

The exhibit Syncretic, presented in a cube contemporary is a confluence of three elements in static contact, but the idea is kinetic and can evolve in different aspects and new directions. 
The exhibition is supported by the National Cultural Fund under the Creative Scolarships Programme and the Programme for the Recovery and Development of Private Cultural Organizations.

Авторът за своята изложба:

Следвам своята житейска пътека и изпитвам благодарност, когато тя се докосва до безкрайната спирала на изкуството. Рефлексиите от този допир, имат различни проявления, но могат да се съберат на едно място, в синкретична импликация. 

Синкретично е името на изложба, в която се представят живописни абстракции, фотографски принтове и кратки поетични текстове, които имат общи пресечни точки - автора, топоса, асоциативните препратки помежду им. 

Живописните абстракции, в контекста на тази концепция, преднамерено отразяват доста широк изобразителен регистър - от по-типични и балансирани композиции до по-предизвикателни и ексцентрични пластични експерименти. Еклектичното внушение се подсилва и от целенасоченото използване на разнообразни технически подходи, при изграждането на отделните работи.
Синкретична връзка между изображение и текст имаше още в първите ми изложби - галерия на СБХ, Шумен 1993, галерия Нава, София, 1994 и т. н. Сега отново използвам кратки авторски текстове, които избягвам да нарека поезия, защото не се възприемам като поет, а само като търсач на интелектуална екстраполация. 
Серията от артистични, фотографски находки, наречена "Случайна живопис", също започнах на шега, като панацея срещу пандемията. Сериозните изводи дойдоха малко по-късно, когато осъзнах, че и на най-абсурдните, грозни и страховити места, може да се спотайват късчета самородна естетика. Стига да я откриеш, усетиш и кадрираш... 

Експозицията Синкретично, представена в a cube contemporary е средоточие на три елемента в статичен контакт, но идеята е кинетична и може да се развива в различни аспекти и нови посоки. 
Изложбата се реализира с подкрепата на Национален фонд култура по програма „Творчески стипендии“ и "Програма за възстановяване и развитие на частни културни организации"

Homo technicus vs Homo sapiens

Solo exhibition by Tsvetelina Dimitrowa 05.07.2022 / 15.07.2022

Homo sapiens, also called intelligent man, is a species of large mammal distinguished by its desire to understand and influence the world around it. In its quest for perfection, it develops a sense of beauty, aesthetics, and a desire for self-expression that leads to cultural innovations such as art, literature, and music. It disappeared in the early 20th century as the next species, Homo technicus, emerged through evolution. After the emergence of the new man, the development of technology, digital devices, artificial intelligence, social applications, etc. began.
The exhibition includes 11 photographic reproductions of famous artists such as Van Gogh, Michelangelo, René Magritte, Frida Kahlo and others. Each of the works includes as part of its body computer components that Tsvetelina Dimitrova assembled herself. Some of them are: eye, ear, brain, heart, tongue, thyroid gland, etc.
Homo technicus vs Homo sapiens is an addition to the author's previous project - Homo technicus. The aim of the new project is to evolve, creating many themes to think about the interaction between humans and technology. The presentation of the classical paintings and the imposition of the parts of the Homo technicus project juxtapose the man of the past (Homo sapiens) and the man of the present/future (Homo technicus).

URANIA...

Solo exhibition by GALINA ALEKSANDROVA - RED 26.05.2022 / 17.06.2022

"Urania is the muse of astronomy, geometry, and poetry. Translated, it means celestial. It is often associated with universal love. Urania inherits the strength and power of her father Zeus and the beauty and grace of her mother Mnemosyne.

The paintings in this exhibition , continue my search and interest in the vast and immeasurable spaces - galaxies, universes, the cosmos. Spaces filled or empty with vacuum or energy keep me curious. In this exhibition, unlike the previous one, I am much more specific because some of my paintings have titles - Uranus, Mars, Aether Wind, Urania... With my cosmogony I recreate the world with crystal clarity, with love and with an inner alphabet that interprets all the mysteries.

In the paintings you will see my thought structures, energy and warm light. Highly expressive they have movement and a life of their own because abstraction is the path of the soul." The exhibition will run until June 17th.

MY BRAIN IS NOT MY BRAIN - MY BODY IS NOT MY BODY

Solo exhibition by Vania Valkova of 05.10.2021 / 20.10.2021

The graphics installation + video projection.     

 

Composition of digital graphics, mixed technique (50x50 cm, foamboard boards. The visions on the boards are the result of computer-generated images and photography of real pictures from the MRI magnetic resonance imaging of my brain .

+ real video from filmed incisions of the brain

+ art animation.

+ stickers in black with the elements (thought codes) mounted on the floor under the

+ info cards (7x10 cm.)  with "thought codes" and contact information and a website with the images themselves,online.

 

The project is inspired by the recurrent Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MRI) study of my brain and the cervical spinal cord.

While lying motionless in a narrow tube of the MRI device, with a reduced amount of oxygen, being subject of a powerful magnetic field, my mind creates different visual forms and hearing perceptions. In the work I show part of 2D computer transformations (pressure, bending, twisting, drawing, vibration, cold and hot pressing and blowing) of two simple two-dimensional shapes, creating an emotional-visual code as a result of these perceptions. During my study, my body is not really my body. I'm losing gradually its physical perceptions: for Above-Below, Left-Right, Heat-Cold, Narrow-Wide, Little-Big, Pain-No Pain.

 

COLOR CODE in the project

- black - sinking, limit, inability to move, restraint and weight sensation, fatigue, leg stiffness, arms, head, neck, crushing sensation and crushing of perceptions

- cyan – electronic, digital color = alienation, artificial perceptions and distance

The abstract art contest ‘21x21" 2021

Group exhibition of 14.02.2021 / 26.04.2021

The third edition of the abstract art contest ‘21x21’ took place during the pandemic. During the lockdown period the works travelled to Bulgaria for a long time, but eventually the final exhibition was of great quality and went on from March 14th to April 26th, 2021. There were works from 89 artists from Bulgaria, Latvia, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Poland, Portugal and Ireland.                                                  
The jury consisted of: Romil Kalinov - artist, Elena Krasteva - scientist and photographer (first place winner of last year’s edition of the contest), Desislava Deneva - artist (second place winner), Anelia Raikova - artist and first place winner from 2019, Morena Stefanova - Archaeologist, Research Associate, Egyptian Department  at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Onnik Karanfilian - artist, Stoyan Kutsev - artist, Teodora Burgudjieva - writer, Todor Raikov - artist, and Geya Antonova - designer. The judging process was, as always, fully anonymous.
First place is awarded to Tsvetelina Stefanova for the work ‘Her phases’. Second place is shared between Biser Lazarov, Darina Zlatareva and Martina Karaivanova. This year the inaugural prize ‘Friend of the Gallery’ goes to the established graphical artist Ivan Ninov, and the audience award goes to Elitsa Baramó.
We thank all participating artists for the excellent works they sent, as well as the jury for its diligent work in assessing them.
The purpose of the ‘21x21’ contest is to capture a moment in time for abstract art in Bulgaria and aboard, and to gather in one common space artists and explorers with similar interests.
We hope that in 2022 we will see you again for the fourth edition of the ‘21x21’ contest in gallery [a] cube contemporary.

Passing and Remaining Landscapes / Parallel Realities project

Solo exhibition by Elitsa Baramó 18.02.2021 / 08.03.2021

Parallel Realities Project

On the expansion of consciousness and the laws of contingency

The abstract pictorial compositions are superimposed with author's photographs of nature and the traces of man in it, connected with visual symbols and their presence in the linguistic semantics. The message refers to the creative energy of the word, the creativity of self-knowledge, self-reflection as a path to the other and the identity. Parallel reality as something not so distant, an alternative for relaxation in a stolen pause.… as a reflection in the show cases superimposed on reality or the lights on the wet asphalt. Awareness of what is before our eyes… for joy of light and search for signs without unnecessary fatalism.

Parallel realities realize simultaneously all possibilities. Without undo. Where is the beginning of this all-embracing probability, or where is the entrance to the garden with paths going apart? - They may be the physical side of rebirth, when you can (or cannot) choose a new life.

What should be the relationship original vs. copy?.… And other questions-answers.… The original is one-of-a-kind, it inspires. It can be the object of mimesis (imitation) and cultural continuity. Dummies are a convenience, in which the copy has a cognitive and educational function. But if we lose the thread, the copy displaces the original. The archetypal position is already taken by the copy or by the copy of the copy, etc., a hall with mirrors, in which only the reflection of the original has entered...

Passing and Remaining Landscapes project

 

Reflections on the perception and selective nature of memory.

There are landscapes which pass and landscapes which remain. Sometimes we have no control. But it is up to us to decide how we perceive things: as a part of life that will pass or a place and a state in which we want to stay.

Landscape is a synthesis between man and the environment. It can also be a quantum reflection of time in the changing matter or in the immaterial, such as memory is.

The PASSING landscapes are vaguely specified, almost on the fiction’s fringes of their reality. They bear no references to any events and personal experiences. The REMAINING landscapes are fixed more steadily in the memory and they are objectified as a reality that can be proven. They are related to introspection and our internal metrics.

But if the contemplator and the landscape are at rest, the landscape remains and there is someone to observe.… When no one is watching, there is no landscape too.
.…Greetings from Schopenhauer.

OUTSIDE! / DEHORS!

Solo exhibition by Elena Krasteva 28.01.2021 / 17.02.2021

Еlena Krasтeva is the winner of the first prize in the second competition 21x21

Help, I'm suffocating! Let me out, open windows and doors! And break the locks, they're everywhere! I see my leg fluctuating on the doorstep... Am I going to cross it, or am I just going to imagine how it is somewhere else? Everyday life, which seemed banal to me, becomes suddenly mysterious. And even the graffiti on the walls of the city unveils hidden paintings. The light brings change, and suddenly everything comes to life and makes sense... Objects abandoned in the deserted streets testify that there was once life here. Traces of an ancient human presence just like in Pompeii or elsewhere in the world. There was life here, let him come back!

 

Michel-Albert Vanel

Au secours, j’étouffe ! Sortir, ouvrir les portes et les fenêtres ! Et faites sauter les verrous, il y en a partout ! Je vois mon pied hésitant sur le seuil à sorti... Vais-je le franchir, ou seulement imaginer l’ailleurs? Le quotidien, qui me semblait banal devient soudain mystérieux. Et même les graffitis sur les murs de la cité révèlent des tableaux cachés. La lumière apporte le changement, et soudain tout bouge, et tout prend du sens… Les objets abandonnés dans les rues désertées attestent qu’il ici, autrefois, il y eut une vie. Traces d’une ancienne présence humaine, tout comme à Pompéi, ou en d’autres lieux. Là était la vie, enfin qu’elle revienne!

DREAMS

solo  exhibition by KARINA POPOVA 05.12 / 20.01.2021

The works I present in this exhibition and in this special space, gallery [a] cube contemporary are an installation of porcelain objects and a series of drawings with ink. This is a true and personal story, but inspired by dreams. Maintaining a surreal connection between reality and fiction, through mirrors and reflections, duplication of reality is conveyed in my visual searches and discoveries. In our dreams, ideas are born, unreal things happen, and yet they are an unsolved and profound mystery to all of us. Every idea in art is first born in a certain language and its role is unchanging. In the drawings, words have their place in free and poetic form, following smoothly the curves of ink, which often only leads to the creation of the works.

MEDITATION ON AN OBJECT

solo photography exhibition by IVAYLO STOIMENOV 15.11 / 04.12.2020

     Meditation through photography

     When concentrating on an object there could essentially be four different phases of experience. In the first step (the one we focus on in this first part of the project) the object ''gets all the attention''. The meditator focuses entirely on the object, depriving himself from everything around, until he gets completely absorbed by it. The subjective feeling of Self is starting to disappear and only the object remains. This intense state of perception is what the author is trying to visualize in a two-dimensional space.

     With the 'Meditation through photography' project you are assigned a visual guide. Ivaylo Stoimenov’s work stems from the analog medium, managing to penetrate the objects of his depictions in a way that seems as if the two-dimensional is trying to turn itself ‘inside out’ in the viewer’s perception. The direct composition of the photographs fully captivates the senses, while the perfectly calculated formatting brings peace to the mind. Every image has a strong focal point which increases concentration. These three immutable constructs guide the viewer into a conscious deprivation of the materiality of the outside world.
While the relation to the visual concentration of Mark Rothko’s pieces is clearly apparent, Ivaylo’s work is also reminiscent of the minimalist style. The author himself has taken an ascetic direction, freeing his work from even the slightest hint of logorrhea. In the "Meditation through photography" project the visual language translates the meditative practice in a simple and efficient manner."

LOOKING BACK

Fine Art exhibition DESSI DENEVA 14.07.2020 / 04.08.2020

Desi Deneva won a second prize at this year's 21x21 Abstract Art Competition and this solo exhibition is her prize. LOOKING BACK Maybe the pandemic tried to "waste" time... and it is as if modern thinking finally desacralize the harmonious image of human interaction and nature. Their silent plot has lost its power. In fact, harmony has long given way to chaos. I think that's where my natural critical reflex is, looking for a foothold in the psychologicalization of the phenomena of life. This is in contrast to the intrusive images that are aggressively present everywhere and sift through the aesthetic sphere of human perception. Electronically generated reality not only complements, but also replaces the traditional real material environment. But there is something else – in a situation of plurality of personal positions, of sociocultural traditions, of philosophical paradigms, of utopian perspectives, where does the autonomy of the author's address take place? So now I found a breath to look back, but not nostalgic, but again to ask myself the question of truthfulness in art. Yet each of us, daring to analyze our own thoughts and feelings, and their influence on ourselves, finds ourselves in a double situation. On the one hand, he discovers not only his own emotions, on the other hand, it becomes more interesting when he discovers their impact on others. The phenomena are considered not only by the iterate, but to "feel" (which is the verbatim meaning of the Greek word "empathy", that is, to be resyed). You've been contacted. I think this is where I should get rid of the polemic situation about the steadfastness of personal taste and coercion from the outside. I will share with you: I am still curious to build on my own spiritual world. The lucid metaphysical archetypal references emerging from the unconscious and recreated into creativity have always tempted me. The established connections, in different contexts, entangle each other in situational rebus. The plastic ditch of paintings is populated with allusions to real objects, integrated in a personal way. Their specificity helps me to more legibly express my ideas on the canvas and provoke me for new work conversions. They initiate a transcendent limitlessness over the world of "familiar" visible reality, yet are a testament to the time they occur. In this exhibition it is sealed from ten years ago, but I perceive it with the criticality of my experience, with a look forward/beyond.

SHARED SPACES

# Solidarity_In_Culture "Shared Spaces" is carried out with the support of Sofia Municipality, under the initiative "Solidarity in Culture". The Architect project is a part of the short film “Shared Spaces“. The painting compositions of the project exist in a new reality; they are set in motion and are accompanied by a sound track of conceptual texts by Baramó in Bulgarian and English. The paintings do not illustrate the texts, nor do the texts explain the paintings. The team will release some fragments before the final production, in the sense of shared spaces. Existentialistic texts are very relevant in the current situation, when we are facing the challenge of self-knowledge. It is a road to meaningful communication with oneself; everyone is in search of one’s personal Virgil... The artist shares her vision of the Fluxus ideas reborn and further developed in the new context. Welcome to “Shared Spaces” in June 2020, and feel invited for a glass of virtual wine!

PENTIMENTO

Fine Art exhibition SVETLOZAR STOYANOV-SVESTO 25.05.2020 / 20.06.2020

Pentimento is an artistic approach that involves superimposing a new image on an existing one to change all or part of the work. One idea replaces another idea, after some rethinking. The moment of "repentance" has come, as is the literal translation of the word. For me, even more interesting are those cases when, for one reason or another, there is no final erasure of the previous layer and in this process, between the images, a special connection can crystallize....

INVISIBLESUN

Fine Art Solo exhibition by ENIL ENCHEV 21.01.2020 / 13.02.2020

There are two songs with the name Invisible Sun and both are of my favorite bands, the more famous is the Police, but the one I listened to as I drew and gave the name of the exhibition is the Invisible Sun of The Prodigy. The minimalist canvas of three chords and the short canto, repeated repeatedly, are the most accurate reflection of the feelings that I previewed in the paintings... Many times, I have said that abstract art is like music – just a feeling conveyed by color, I mean instrumental music, not the opera or the songs where the libretto and lyrics tell a story...

WALKING MAN

“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Everyday, I walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But by sitting still, & the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.”

Soren Kierkegaard

And I decided to go ... Todor Raykov

FACE TO FACE

exhibition - painting and video STANISLAVA STOYANOVA and RADOSTINA DOGANOVA In his phenomenology of perception Merleau-Ponty places the vision at the center of perception. Vision is seen as an act of accomplished co-being, where I and The Other consolidate their co-existence, their mutual inter-dwelling in the unity of the present. The gaze is this intentional “aboutness” which relates to the existence of The Other, indicating not only to his objective availability but also to his spiritual existence. The conceptual exhibition “Face to Face” aims to problematize and discuss the place of the gaze in the current reality, to situate the gaze and the vision as necessary phenomenological constituents in the realization of the intersubjective relationship with The Other, as well as acquainting The Otherness, The Strangeness, and The Marginalized – from social, cultural and humane perspective. Central moment for the investigation of this cultural otherness is the painting “Eyes” by Radostina Doganova, which is inspired by the stay of the artist in India and her contact with the cultural, social and religious differences between the Eastern and the European culture. In unison, the series of paintings “The Waves” by Stanislava Stoyanova, along with the short videoinstallation “Time Passes”, problematize the complex relationship of the artist with the sea and its crucial part of her life – on the one hand, as a symbol of inspiration, on the other, as an inmost dream about the gaze of her beloved one. Stanimir Stoyanov – Goldsmiths, University of London Stanislava Stoyanova is a visual artist, who lives and works in Sofia, Bulgaria. She graduated from National Academy of Arts, Sofia in 1988. She has a variety of international participations – including exhibitions in Italy (Venice, Florence) and London (Bulgarian Cultural Institute).

Her main interest is painting. She has a variety of exhibitions in Bulgaria and worldwide. Her works are exhibited in private collections and galleries in Australia, Germany, England, USA and Slovakia.

THE ARCHITECT PROJECT

solo exhibition Elitsa Baramova-Baramó 25.09 2018 -13.10.2018

​Amidst stardust the Architect constructs the potential of every handful of earth. The individual is conceived as a monolithic whole, and the debris of time builds the personality as a test of free will. It is an elevator to the luminous and accomplished self. Regardless of the inter-floor zones where everyone can make a stop, each person is worthy in the perspective of his development. One can get old like a cathedral, with one’s back turned to the fear of the unknown, aware of the different forms of life. Day changes to night, then morning comes again; if may be spring now, and it will come again ... the eternal cycle leads us along the spiral around the axis…

SHIFTING THE SPACES

solo exhibition Mario Nikolov   16/06/2018 - 02/06/2018

The exhibition "Shifting the Spaces", which I present at the Sofia Gallery [a] cube contemporary, is my first independent performance in Bulgaria since 2013. Five years! To explain at least a small part of my attitude to art, I will paraphrase the great Man Ray: "Which I can not paint, describe or photograph. And vice versa. But my heart is in painting ... "
Through the means of geometric abstraction, I am not trying to contradict either reality or the different projections of realistic art, but through my paintings I hope to look at the world beyond its material dimensions and to illustrate metaphorically the mismatch of spaces and their confused perspectives that we have to go through most of our lives. Today we see unexpected "tectonic movements" of cultural, aesthetic, moral, spiritual level that become more intrusive, more meaningless, more aggressive ...
With this exhibition, I go back to where Vassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Pitt Mondrian, Franz Kupka and other "brothers" went, trying to recall what they were, to share their preconceptions, to if not the world, at least your thoughts and feelings. In colors ...

WHIMS

solo exhibition  Svesto 02.11.2017 / 19.11.2017

 have long experienced curiosity about all those extravagant manifestations we call whims. My desire is to digging, to what extent the wayward impulses have an impact in different life and especially creative situations. unmotivated desires and surprising twists can be existential fateful, like this, most often we mean with phrase "whims of fate". And how the fad influences the contemporary creative act, which is a complex cultural implikaciâ of imagination, cognition, experimental insights, coincidence, passion... It seems to me that under its influence on this paradigm we must add the risk. When the artist rejects the approach of gradual construction, ignores what he has created so far and radically changes it, hoping to achieve a new, different aesthetic. Sometimes it really happens, which makes me think that the whims can also be benevolent.
