Decadent Eclipse, installation view, KK Projects Gallery, New Orleans, 2019
Site-specific installation, Inkjet print on canvas, mattress, tread, wooden blocks, 205 x 142 x 25 cm, 2009
A combination of large-scale photographic print and found object, this installation focuses on the idea of cross-cultural pollution. Borrowing elements from both traditional Bulgarian and popular global cultures, the image depicts a domestic scene gone sour: a woman (the artist herself) and her children are simultaneously eclipsed by the detritus of western overabundance and crushed by the weight of their own culture’s traditions.
“Decadent Eclipse” was presented at KK Projects Gallery in New Orleans, LA (2009). Curator Natalia Mount.
