Georgi Tomov Georgiev





Georgi Tomov Georgiev (1983) is an artist focusing his work on installations. Being born in Sofia, his cultural upbringing is balanced on a thin string separating east and west, keen to both but not belonging to either. A duality inherent as a technique in his practice, weaving the matters, both metaphysical and factual, into a singular state. His pieces create alternate perspectives unto awareness and investigate the linearity of time. They rise above visuality to synthesize the transience of thought. A multidimensional approach, which explores the coexistence of divergent instances of perception. This process raises questions how and by whom are our realities constructed and perceived. It is a method able to undo the status quo superimposed by the current state of society, dissolving established cultural notions, while inducing vivid cognition. Thus, the spectator is allowed spontaneous and intuitive attainment of subtle concepts.

Georgi works with ephemeral mediums — light and sound — acquiring an abstracted understanding of the essence of an object or space. The purpose of his practice is not mere reflection, but rather augmentation of perception, facilitation of change: a poetic reconstruction of reality maintaining an idealism pertaining model of the world; a manifestation of an internalized dialectic process of perpetual movement of the artist.
