Kiril Kuzmanov

Brief info

In his practice, Kuzmanov is interested in ‘how the ideas as ‘objects’, expressed in a certain language, media and scale gain their status and how that status culturally and psychologically influences our experience’. His interest in the relationship between the artwork (the object/image) and the 'ideas' is embodied in the creation of a specific environment of discourse, which represents an integral part of the work itself. Some of his works associated with particular space are: Project 0 (2010-2014), The Trap Quarter (Kapana), Plovdiv; (Dis)appearance of the Content 2, Women’s Market and Sofia City Art Gallery, Sofia, 2013; Ongoing Line, work in progress compound with Antarctica, 2011-; Who Controls the Controllers, Tiananmen Square, Beijing (2009-2011); Untameable is the Wind, connected with 11 countries in Asia, 2008–. Among his large-scale works and solo exhibitions are: What Is Passing through me, I Pass Trough It, (2009)-2015, Architectural Association, London,(2009)-2015; Ice-Cream and Aviation, 2014-2017; Chapter 36/50, ICA-Sofia,(2013)-2014; Exhale, Rayko Alexiev Gallery, Sofia, (2008)-2011; Feeder Head, Vaska Emanouilova Gallery, Sofia (2008)-2010.

He is the recipient of various awards and scholarships such as the Grand Jury Prize of St. Cyril and St. Methodius International Foundation, 2006; KulturKontakt, Austria, 2012; and the BAZA Award, 2013.
