Title: “How we live”
Artists: Rada Boukova e Lazar Lyutakov
Curator: Vera Mlechevska
Organized by the Ministry of Culture
Bulgaria takes part in the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia with the exhibition “How We Live“, by Rada Boukova e Lazar Lyutakov, curated by Vera Mlechevska.
The exhibition is the result of a nation wide open call for curatorial projects, which was organized by the Ministry of Culture and attracted interest from the artistic community in the country. “How We Live” is a visual dialogue of two individual works by Rada Boukova and by Lazar Lyutakov, which reflect on the concept of centuries-old craft traditions juxtaposed with large-scale industrial production of standard and accessible commodities that intrude into the contemporary living environment. The works were developed specially for the space in the Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, the history of which dates back to the 17th century and relies on semantic and visual opposition to the architectural and historical context of both the building and the city of Venice.
