MEETING POINT VESSCULPTURE Vessel Tanev

04 March 2004 - 22 March 2004


 

Vessel has its clear, overall concept of the sculpture he creates. He works with high technology materials such as brass, phosphor bronze, stainless steel, textolite. His art uses the expression language of industrial production. He utilizes universal machine details and his works remind of industrial design products. The conceptual idea is leading in their creation. The fulfillment is fully based on the principles of mass circulation as per exact preliminary project. As absurd as it may be, their flavor is hidden exactly in this potential re-productivity of the works – an advantage provided by modern technologies. 
The presented sculptures are easel works intended for the interior.







SOFIA - A HUNDRED FACES

03 March 2004 - 27 April 2004


 

The exhibition is dedicated to the 125th Anniversary of proclaiming Sofia the capital of Bulgaria and 75 years from the establishment of a municipal art collection that laid the foundations of the present Sofia Art Gallery.
The gallery’s rich painting collection treating the topic of Sofia includes more than 350 art works (one third of them is shown in the exhibition), purposefully collected for more than six decades. The landscapes and compositions offer us the opportunity to compare more than 100 artists from different generations, representatives of all stylistic trends in Bulgarian art during 20th century – the way they saw Sofia, their preferred urban topics, the city changes from swarming streets and squares to the quiet nooks and outskirts. One city with one-hundred faces. 
The exhibition is accompanied by a bilingual catalogue, with colorful and black and white reproductions of all paintings treating the theme of Sofia from the gallery’s painting fund, and a reference about the artists – bearers of the awards of Sofia in the 40s of the 20th century until present time.

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.
Using the natural environment, hidden or public places, with their specific expression they turn these into the artists’ playground.

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. 
The exhibition features paintings from the Chiprovtzi Municipality, The Stara Zagora Art Gallery, Sliven, Pazardjik, Burgas, Kazanluk, Sofia Art Gallery and private collections. 
The exhibition is organized on the initiative of Stara Zagora Art Gallery, with the support of the ‘Malki Bulgarski Hora’ National Organization, National Initiative Committee, the municipality of Chiprovtzi, the National Business Post. 







IVAN B. IVANOV painting

01 February 2004 - 28 February 2004


 

The exhibition at the SAG presents one of the artist’s latest cycles that synthesizes his search in the direction of the abstract but creating associations imaging.







MEETING POINT Jury Staikov & Toma Vasharov The evolution is a trademark of human Evolution

20 January 2004 - 27 January 2004


 

The project includes two short video films with duration of 3 and 6 minutes as two parts of one video-installation. The video with duration of 6 minutes is a background of the shorter movie, which bears the main concept. 
More accurately, the concept is displayed as a game and undisguised irony through elementary and easily identifiable metaphors. The idea of the impossible revolution stays in the center. 







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.
