Untitled (Moon Paradise)

2013 – 2020
Photo montage, wallpaper on wall

Photo wallpapers were a fashionable genre in interior design in my childhood (to be precise I am talking about Socialist Bulgaria in 1970s). Some of the most popular templates were the sceneries from exotic landscapes with palm threes. I was fascinated by the opportunity such wallpaper gave to travel to faraway lands without leaving your kitchen or living room. During the same period science fiction allowed me to travel to worlds outside the earth confines. Today, a few decades after the second world (the so called Socialist countries) seized to exist, tourism still seduces with opportunities for temporal escape to tropical paradises, and development of space technologies still promise the conquests of new planets, while more and more spots on Earth resemble lunar desert due to ecological disasters or military conflicts.

The work was fist show at my solo exhibition Cosmopolis at ICA-Sofia gallery in 2013, curated by Iara Boubnova.

Audio-guide production: Martina Yordanova, Kalin Serapionov
