MEETING POINT VIA PONTICA Performance, installation, lecture
10 February 2004 - 01 March 2004
Via Pontica – the spring flight of the birds is a term which focuses the efforts of the authors in the direction of a sensual, time-bound natural art. Studying the field of the symbolic they rediscover the sign of the paleo-maze. Its complex structure represents a harmonious agreement of opposites, which build up a whole and at the same time something different. The ROAD provokes them, passing through, to start artistic attempts within the natural motion. It seems as if down to the most obvious way of moving of the bi-pedal creature – simple walking. Stimulating a process of personal studying, their art turns into a sign. The artist, in the act, literally turns into a carrier of a symbolic meaning, using mechanical inventions, which in various ways impede or determine the motion and create a hybrid walking form: a man + construction. In a maze, in spheres, with stilts, with unordinary “shoes” on the feet, feet fixed with concrete in a Russian weeble, the authors pass the distance from the impossibility to the attempt, in the search of the common way or the possible directions to go.
GEORGI PAVLOV - PAVLETO 1913 - 1995
05 February 2004 - 28 February 2004
The creative work of Georgi Pavlov-Pavleto is frequently said to imply feelings of lyricism and immediacy. His style bears resemblance with that of the School of Paris, typical with its clear and pure colors and highlighted linearity. His landscapes, depicting views of the capital’s suburbs are among the best creations in the genre.
IVAN B. IVANOV painting

MEETING POINT Samuil Stoyanov Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
18 December 2003 - 15 January 2004
Opposite or complementing, incompatible or logically interrelated are the paintings in this exhibition? The fact that on one canvas two formally anonymous images are situated does not always mean that they do not have a unified logic. “Vecherni novini” (“The Evening News”) contradicts one “accidentally caught frame” from the street traffic to another “accidentally caught frame” from the news of the Katar television. But maybe nothing is accidental. Under what logic “Rocko and Rock” combine the portrait of a Bulgarian boy and American actor? The narrative of the works is apparent, but there are many alternative possibilities for new “reading” and interpretations, which increase with each subsequent look. Maybe the laconic contradiction of formal values in a “Picture without a name” is far less definite.

STANISLAV PAMUKCHIEV '93 - '03
04 November 2003 - 30 November 2003
The exhibition of Stanislav Pamukchiev is a synthesis of his creative search during the past ten years. It features works that best express the author and most thoroughly disclose his credo. In the gallery’s halls works from the five main cycles can be seen: Ashes /1993-1996/, Precipitated time /1998/, Spaces /1999/, Relicts /2000/, Passing /2001-2003/. The author’s aim is the separate stages to be shown, the change of language form figuratively expressive to informal to be underlined, to be traced the directing towards the object and spatial composition and the return to the figurative.
