Between the Past Which is about to Happen and the Future Which has Already Been


 The exhibition is the first solo presentation in Dobrich by Krassimir Terziev, who is aclaimed for his work in contemporary art, the moving image and the post-digital condition.

Terziev’swork focuses on how our perceptions change by the influence of mass media and new technologies, how notions of past and future, history and mythology change, and the borderlines between personal, group and public space merge. Those topics are embodied in the form, choice of medium and display of the works. Differing from traditional logic in the arts, they do not master a personal visual language, but are full of internal references, quotations, familiar images and motives in a way that communicates directly with everyday life. Large part of the works included in the exhibition have been part of solo and group exhibitions by the artist. Among them are: Si tu veux voir le monde, ferme tes yeux: Part 1 (2015), Argos Centre for Art and Media, Brussels; “Disconsent” (2014), Centre for Contemporary Art “The Ancient Bath”, Plovdiv, curator Iara Boubnova; “Cosmopolis” (2013), ICA-Sofia, curator Iara Boubnova; Rencontres Internationales (2012), Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin/ Centre Pompidou, Paris/ Reina Sofia National Museum of Art, Madrid; Cinema like never before (2006/2007), Generali Foundation, Vienna/ Academie der Kunste, Berlin, curators Antje Ehmann/Harun Farocki.
