INTRO

THE NATURE OF RELATIONS

IRINA BATKOVA
Curator BUNA VOL.2

We all live in both cultural and ecological communities with socially diverse relationships between people, places, culture and nature. Ecology emerged as a concept in the 19th century and studies the interactions between organisms and their environments, but much of its theoretical structure emerged only in the 20th century and includes a wide variety of subfields. The development of the philosophical analysis of ecology, which had been limited to population, community, and ecosystem ecology, included explanations of relevant concepts and relationships between ecological diversity and stability, the nature of laws and theories in ecology, and strategies for building models.

The modern idea of self-care involves more than protecting individual rights and freedoms; it also involves protecting the ecological well-being of others including the natural environment with which we are constantly connected. The nature of all these relationships is subject to constant rethinking and is the subject of various inherently human activities, among which art stands out, always managing to provoke human cognition with unexpected discourses and perspectives. 

The Presence of the Absent or Stirring the Thought

ALEXANDER VALCHEV
Curator of urban interventions

Today, hysteria over history and its interpretation is peaking. Everyone claims expertise on what belongs in public spaces, with extreme voices dominating and manipulating public opinion. Serious discussions and efforts to reach consensus are missing, leading to easy destruction and replacement with mediocre imitations and kitsch. The endless focus on the past for national pride has overshadowed everything else.

My project for the Buna Festival addresses two main themes: the presence and significance of contemporary art in our lives, and rethinking the connections between the present and the past, human and nature through public art.

Urban art has always sparked controversy, often used politically to legitimize power or for beautification with dubious aesthetic value. Granite and bronze monuments are polished to represent "eternal" values.

The works in this project counter these trends with irony, acknowledging that everything changes. They focus on contemporary themes and materials without imitating the past.

Dreams are advertised, but objects are sold. Sofia Dimova's dog Hugo enjoys universal attention, yet no one remembers its owner.

What we do matters today, because tomorrow "today" will be yesterday. People will look back on it yesterday, and we may have failed to fully experience it, rethink it, and write down the important things to pass on to those after us.

    KopfDerHund / Musical performance / 20:00 22:00

    Ivan Kostolov - electric guitar 

    Nicolas Henri - bass guitar 

    Krasimir Kostov - vocal

    In parallel with my main pursuits in the field of painting, I am also actively involved in experimental music and sound art. The theme of the current edition Buna provokes free authorial interpretation and interdisciplinary projects. For this I would like to participate with a musical performance within the festival together with my band KopfDerHund. The performance includes a performance of electric guitar, bass guitar and vocals with effects and musical arrangement and projection of author's photographs on the theme of man and nature. The music I've been working on with my band KopfDerHund in recent years is characterized by flux elements, references to classical music, experimental jazz and sound art. The emphasis is on free interpretation at the time of music creation. The duration of the performance is 40-50 minutes. More about Kostov's authorial approach and the series of photographs in the article by Yovo Panchev: They are still here.

During PURE /youth/, the audience activates certain "living paintings", becoming a common composition with them. Each viewer's personal story interacts with the installation, so that visitors imperceptibly begin to explore the images they have built based on the sensations, feelings and emotions they experience "here and now".

    KOKIMOTO Collection
    As an artist, I am relatively well-known to the general public with an inimitable style and personal signature of expression, but with my passion for collecting, I remain still unknown.
    For my urges to collect designer designer toys, you get snippets of information from various sources. You learned about my attitude to the preservation and storage of artifacts from the "Kingdom of Bularia" through my project in development, entitled "Superman", presented until recently in the space of KOP - Sofia. However, few relatives, colleagues, like-minded people and art connoisseurs are allowed access to my collection of contemporary Bulgarian and foreign art. But it's growing every day, and its overall profile and quality make it necessary to share it with a wider audience.

    Institute of Contemporary Art - Sofia

    A conversation with the artists

    The thesis of this project is that an art-ecosystem relies as much on the balance between common artistic interests, priorities and respect for the other/the other as on the ability to find yourself in the whole - both the group and the stage; to control the frustrations of career, age, competition from without and within; to develop and maintain the ability to see oneself and one's practice as a point in which both the concreteness of the ego, of the Self, is concentrated, and the entirety of the complex and delicate ecosystem of interrelationships with other scenes and groups, with colleagues, friends is concretized , partners both here and there - around the world. 
    ISI, the Institute of Contemporary Art - Sofia is one of the longest existing and active non-governmental organizations dealing with visual art in Bulgaria. It was conceived in 1993 and was registered as an NGO, an association of art critics and artists in 1995. Its history is closely related to the development of our art scene in recent decades, its self-education, opening and positioning in the world, with some of the most its notable appearances in local and international contexts.

The emphasis is precisely on them, because their existence is an invariable part of human existence - it enchants our senses and introduces us to the magic of the ecosystem. They are not just green creatures that grow in our landscape, they are the living lungs and roofs of our planet, our dreams and inventions. Plants are a major part of the Earth's ecosystem and play an important role in the life of the planet both on land and In the water. Their developmental phases are an important aspect of the life cycle that reflects their adaptation to the environment and their ability to grow and reproduce in close proximity to humans.

    Nikola Tsvetanov, curator Sofia Dimova

    The replacement of ideological and value paradigms appears in two different aspects in my city - either grotesque or comic. Over time, farces become part of the habitual behavior of people who adapt to them. The replacement plays with you, asking you questions and offering answers. I explore what happens visually and coded, focusing on the sense of the eternal that tests reality as a reflection of the social behavior of newcomers to the game. Laws, norms and values only change if something in the game changes. The feeling of replacement is wild, sweet, diverse and sometimes bloodthirsty. I cannot confirm whether this becomes part of the consumption structures of modern man, but it is clearly available with collected qualities in public life. The provocation I feel is not theatrical, but rather comic, dynamic and with its history.
