Bulgarian art space Swimming Pool is opening its inaugural exhibition Balconia at their Sofia location, running from April 25 to May 31.
The premise of the space —a terrace pool atop a modernist building at the heart of Sofia —works swimmingly with the themes of its inaugural exhibition: a vacation spent at home, on one’s balcony. A “dated domestic setting — infused with fragmented memories” marks the exhibition, which invites not a change of geography and a redefinition of it.
The group exhibition brings three different artists contributing work: Stefania Batoeva expands on a new exploration of a fictional Club Caligula in dense paintings; Emanuel Röhss presents synthetic sculptures composed of found objects; and Yves Scherer plays with simulacrum and privacy in his latest works.

It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up.
