The Bulgarians Are Coming – Water Tower Art Fest in London
Bulgarian Cultural Institute, 188 Queens Gate, South Kensington, London
24th October 2013
Standpoint Gallery, 45 Coronet Street, London
The Bulgarians Are Coming – an exhibition dedicated to free exchange of ideas and collaborations between artists from different nations. The idea behind this show is provoked by the UK press prediction of mass immigration in 2014 by Bulgarians and Romanians with granted work permits. The artworks to be shown are from international and Bulgarian artists, all participants of the Water Tower Art Fest – an artist run initiative. Water Tower Art Fest is the biggest international art event in Bulgaria with its seven years history in the development of contemporary arts in alternative spaces with socially engaged artworks from national and international artist’s participants. The collaborations made during the festival have extended themselves outside Europe, making an independent network for artistic exchange and communication.
Artists include: Alexandra McGllynn (UK) Andrey Vrabchev (BG), Andy Broadey (UK), Anna Simeonoff (BG), Arran Poole and Mark Summers (UK), Caitlin and Andrew Webb – Ellis (UK/Canada), Claire Halpin (IRL), Emil Mirazchiev (BG), Galya Yotova (BG), Gareth Bell Jones (UK), Herve Constant (UK), Hitomi Kammai (JAPAN/UK), John O’Hare (UK), Juan DelGado (UK), Kenneth G. Hay and Seetha- Moorland Productions (UK), Marieta Tsenova (BG), Nia Pushkarova (BG), Remi Rem (UK), Vessela Mihailova and Tiago Martins (BG/Portugal).
This exhibition will feature two of my prints from the Micro Aviary Series and my dvd Sentinel will be screened at Standpoint Gallery on 24 October.
