DESCRIPTION
In this exhibition, Mariana Vassileva made her first joint venture of intergrating two funtions by the needs of each work phase. DNA BERLIN developed its approach as a communicating and distributing agent of her production, a role that would framed the artistic context of Mariana Vassileva and the process of collaborative production by means of artwork presentation and artist archive composition. The solo exhibition of MARIANA VASSILEVA „FOLD & BREAK“ that is firstly presented at the DNA BERLIN, is compiled from 5 brand new works and one work produced in 2012-13. A wire cage with a loose end on one side suggests either escaping or breaking in. A multi-channel video installation presents the viewer with a composition of hands of different ages, tapping on a surface. In the absence of facial expressions, the hands reveal the personality and its momentous emotional state. A sculptural trio of air-propelled ties performs a piece about power and impotence. A video shows a person, swirling vigorously around himself a burning bundle at twilight. He creates a universe of his own with his private “sun” circling around him and casting a shadow, which frenetically runs around him, as he stands in one place. This new video work „Turnovo“(2013) is directly connected with her new installations. These works of Mariana Vassileva that are filmed in her hometown in Bulgaria, inspired, influenced from and about the story of her parents, are presented for the first time to the public at the DNA BERLIN.
