The year of 2004 is connected with 800 years from the taking over of Constantinople by the army of the Fourth Crusade. The Ivan Duichev Centre of Slavic and Byzantine Research commemorated the event by the Speech and Image exhibition, with one more activity from the agreement concluded in 2003 with the Sofia City Art Gallery aiming to popularize art created in Bulgarian lands and on the Balkans (in 2003 engravings by Hristophor Jeraphovich were shown - a donation by His Holiness The Patriarch of Serbia Pavle, and also works by the contemporary Serbian graphic artist Velko Mihaylov).
Speech and Image includes more than 150 exponents, directly entered the Professor Ivan Duichev Centre of Slavic and Byzantine Research or through the Elena and Ivan Duichevi Foundation after the year 2000, and private persons. They have not been published yet in catalogues or other editions. This is valid for Pavel Panov’s private collection (registered as № 1 of the ‘Stara Sofia’ Municipal enterprise, Sofia Museum of History) and Roumen Manov’s and Petar Hristov’s collections. There are only two panels dating back from 12th century, taken out of the cover of an old-print book, go out of chronological timing of the period between 15-20th century. The rest of the exponents comprise not only 19th but also 20th century.

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

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.
