ADATA AiR – Artist-in-Residence Programme / NATURA STATICA (29 Sept. -20 Nov.)
Temporary installation in public space
Location: Northern shore of Maritsa river, on the alley between the bridges of Pobeda bld. and Vasil Aprilov bld.
Opening: 29 Sept., Sunday, at 4:30 pm, with an introduction by the artist
The installation is meant to stand as a playful and visually attractive space, where visitors can get lost in the labyrinth like interior. The rich floral motifs on the different types of curtains connect the feeling of home with the forms of nature, thus creating a bond between the natural and the human made. The translucent textiles mark the thin border between private and public, interior and exterior, large and small space.
Kopacz Kund is a Bucharest based interdisciplinary artist working with sculpture, installation, photo and video based art, either in natural environments, or recently in the studio. He has studied nature and land art at the Eszterházy Károly University, Visual Art Department in Eger, Hungary and at the University of Art and Design in Cluj, Romania.
His main topics are the relationship between Nature and human, the notion of landscape and the concept of the Anthropocene.
