Our goal is to meet interesting people, to share information and to make nice collaborations in a cozy athmosphere.

16.01. – 30.01.2018

Opening: 16.01., Τuesday, 6 pm
„Gifted”, Ivan Denkoglu St. 24, Sofia

The exibition includes
the drawings from the series “Insects’ secrets”,
prints and artists books.

„The insects don’t have dreams.
These silent observers don’t know good or bad, beautiful or ugly. They do not involve.
They are witnesses who do not judge. The Insects live here and now.
In the world of the insects future and past are incomprehensible. Their law is the one of the pure survival and existence.
They perform the life in front of my eyes
and their movements reflect the sadness and the celebrations,
the beginning and the end. In the insects’ shadows I see my face“.

Boris Pramatarov

The exhibition is supported by Jameson Irish Whiskey
