Action: Contemporary Art Boryana Rossa works in public collections
17 May 2005 - 05 June 2005
The purpose of the “Action: Modern Art” is to supply the newly established collection “Modern Art and Photography” and to promote the latest trends in Bulgarian art. The Sofia Art Gallery staff are convinced that the mission of their institution is to appraise, select and store the best examples from the past and the present day of art. In our circumstances this function is even more important given the lack of a Museum of Contemporary Art. Several generations of artists have been employing the new means of expression for some twenty years now, however, their works have not been and are not included in museum collections. This disturbing fact inspired our vigorous effort to conserve this art. Unfortunately, because of shortage of money we have to rely on donations from artists. The exceptionally valuable donation “Vanitas” of Nadezhda Oleg Lyahova was displayed within the framework of this project in October 2005.

MEETING POINT Svetlin Balezdrov. "7"
04 April 2005 - 24 April 2005
My three-dimensional abstract work aims at influencing the subconscious and provoking contemplation, e.g to tune the spirit to those peculiar states, typical for the Eastern mysticism. The Asian thread in the project could also be traced in the treatment of the material. Each module of the ensemble is folded only by on single piece of paper without infringing its integrity. Despite my explicit interest towards the East, I belong to the cultural tradition of the West and I think that my work is seriously influenced by the constructivism and minimalism.
MEETING POINT Nikolay Zanev. Derailed
15 March 2005 - 27 May 2005

The artist makes the art object and the critique dependent by critically exposing texts in the gallery space, offering free interpretations of them. His methods include appropriations of already existing objects, photography, pictures and manipulated objects.
