(English) On Focus: The Interior

(English)

2015

BORYANA ROSSA

VIVA! Art Action! Performance Art Festival, Montreal

“On Focus: The Interior” is a homage to the “Interior Scroll” by Carolee Shneemann - perhaps one of my favorite feminist performance art pieces. However I belong to a different generation, therefore I can not just make a piece that celebrates earlier fellow feminists without adding something to it, or re-interpreting their work in a current context.

ULTARFUTURO

Intervention in the garden in front of the monument "1300 Years of the Bulgarian State," Sofia, Bulgaria Desctription : This action was meant to bring attention to the fate of the socialist monuments  in Bulgaria. Some of them (like the Mausoleum of Georgi Dimitrov)  have been demolished, some not maintained well. The monument "1300 Years of the Bulgarian State" is the biggest in Sofia and the most neglected nationwide. It is to commemorate the entire Bulgarian history since the  establishment of the medieval state in 681 A.D.
