Gery Georgieva‘s solo exhibition The Blushing Valley is on at Sofia’s Swimming Pool, running December 9 to February 11.
Looking at the valley and exploring its multifaceted interpretations (from warm sheltered areas to metaphor and melancholia), the works explore the concept of ‘woman’ as it relates to it: “Mother Earth, The Rose Queen, daughter of a nation, field worker, Disneyland princess, valley girl. Wearer of blushing dusks, calming lotions, radiant creams…”
The exhibition is an installation of video and object assemblage, which picks apart Bulgarian consumer culture, cultural and symbolic appropriation and a language of ‘fantastical, almost hallucinatory clichés and archetypes’ that allow an opening into the intimate and embarrassing.**
Gery Georgieva’s solo exhibition The Blushing Valley at Sofia’s THE SWIMMING POOL opened December 9, 2017. and is running to February 11, 2018.
