Souvenirs from the Future

    Dec 21, 2020 Jan 9, 2021
    Opening: Monday, December 21, 6 - 9 PM

This year's edition of the Christmas exhibition of ICA-Sofia is focused on the "surprise" and is intended to be entirely in the spirit of 2020.

Visitors will be able to acquire a work from one of the participants in the exhibition, without knowing whose work they are receiving. Viewers will have the opportunity to choose between identical packaged gift boxes, which contain puzzles in the format of 29.7x21 cm, consisting of 120 pieces, in an edition of 3. Each artist has provided the image for participation, but even they themselves will not know which their puzzles are. The event will take place on 21.12.2020, depending on the anti-epidemic measures it will be either at the place or online.

Aksiniya Peicheva, Alexander Valchev, Antoni Rayzhekov, Valentina Sciarra, Veneta Androva, Vikenti Komitski, Voin de Voin, Valko Chobanov, Dan Perjovschi, Denica Milusheva, Dimitar Solakov, Dimitar Shopov, Zara Alexandrova, Zoran Georgiev, Ivan Moudov, Iskra Blagoeva, Kalin Serapionov, Kalina Dimitrova, Kiril Prashkov, Krassimir Terziev, Lars Nordby, Lubri, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Mariela Gemisheva, Maria Nalbantova, Martin Penev, Martina Vacheva, Miryana Todorova, Mitch Brezounek, Nevena Ekimova, Nedko Solakov, Nikola Mihov, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Radostin Sedevchev, Rudi Ninov, Sophia Grancharova, Stela Vasileva, Stefan Nikolaev, Tihomir Stoyanov, Iara Boubnova, Yasen Zgurovski.

The exhibition is part of the 2021 annual international program of ISI-Sofia entitled "Superpositions*". The programme is guided by the principle that interdisciplinarity is a major vector in contemporary art practice. The series of exhibitions examine the connections between art and fields such as: politics / poetics; science and technology; popular culture; gender and social movements; ecology and migration. The discursive couples are reflected in the structure of each exhibition - a dialogue between two authors - one from Bulgaria and one guest.

*Superposition is a fundamental principle of quantum physics, according to which every elementary particle exists in all its theoretically possible positions simultaneously; but when measured or observed, it gives a result corresponding to only one possible configuration.

The exhibition programme "Superpositions" is supported by the National Fund Culture / Annual Programme for Support of Professional Organisations in the Field of Arts National Fund Culture logo
