For the second installment of the experimental platform that was launched at the beginning of this year, we are ready to announce our next attempt to challenge the conventions of art making (and putting it together).

CHAIN REACTION, is a wish to start a cycle of reactions based on various sensory and perceptive testimonies, where each artist delivers a site of his/her own practice. In a visual plane or through the formation of ideas, the crew has been put up to meditate upon a line of thought that remains personal and yet is in tact with the task. Anonymously the invited artists have been asked to create or deliver a piece that is in direct relation to a piece they will receive from Æ, and later pass it on to the next one, and so on, until the chain turns, until meaning emerges/dissolves. How do we create visual narratives in a group? What is the importance of the past in talking about the present and imagining the future? Can we solve a mystery—an ancient one?

The start of the chain has been set by someone who doesn't need much introduction—Luchezar Boyadjiev. Further along in the chain we will have a debut appearance by the prodigy kid Simeon Markov, as well as a far away intervention by the Sydney-based artist Catherine Bell. The chain will also include the talented Iskra Blagoeva, the master of pen/pencil Stela Vasileva, as well as ever so challenging reinventions of the techniques of painting brought by Rassim.

A new born performance duo will spin down the Chain Reaction at the opening of the show, formed by Desislava Ilieva and Voin de Voin.
We hope to see you and the experimental platform PART 2.
