The exhibition accentuates the importance of space as the major tool employed by artists. Space is what the artist faces every time he/she sets about working, trying to overcome it and change it in an attempt to create something new and unique.
Branko Nikolov, Delia Chausheva, Momchil Georgiev and Simeon Shivachev are artists from different generations, whose perception of the world and means of artistic expression are also different. Hence, the exhibition is characterized by the diversity of the media employed – Delia Chausheva participates with drawings, Momchil Georgiev and Simeon Shivachev participate with paintings and Branko Nikolov – with video art works. Each artist chose “his/her” wall in the exhibition hall, where he/she creates a space of his/her own. The result of that is an installation representing a blend of various artistic forms, an installation, built by each artist’s individuality.
