I create experiences through installation, sculpture, music. Born in Sofia, my cultural upbringing is balanced on a thin string separating east and west, keen to both but not belonging to either. Merging this dichotomy into a lucid identity is a source of perpetual movement animating my practice. Working on a transnational level, I examine divergent histories to create a multidimensional perspective of reality. The consolidating element is bringing viewers out of assumed roles super-imposed by the status quo and the facilitation of a new self-awareness informed by the action of breaking-through national identities.
I work with ephemeral mediums – light and sound – and bind them to architectonic structures. My practice augments perception and reconstructs reality maintaining an idealism pertaining model of the world. Each piece calling for a critical and attentive mode of apprehension.
