The installation Red Sleeping Beauty is the culmination of three weeks of intense work in response to the environment of the old school and found material within it. It consists of found objects and original paintings and drawings, the combination of which adresses the following: What is an image? What is an object? What are the limits between the two? How can a transformative narrative be suggested by their combination in a space, especially when it is an unconventional space, beyond the confines of the gallery?
The paintings themselves are abstracted lanscapes that, together with the overall title and their placement, suggest a vague narrative which the audience is invited to use its imagination to complete.
The installation is a large-scale collage. Each element exists in relation to one and other. The border between each element is an active border. It is an aesthetised collision.
Place: The building of the school in Gorna Lipnitsa – 2nd floor.
Time: 6.30 pm.
