“SELF-PORTRET IN A BOOK, THREE DAYS WITH THE PRESENCE OF THE AUTHOR”

September 21, 22 and 23
opening: September 21, 7 p.m.

The last edition of the book* « Self-Portrait» contains photographs, texts and interviews from her 20 years of artistic experience. Among the authors are Iara Boubnova and Demna Dimitrova, while the design was made by Kiril Zlatkov.

Mariela Gemisheva is undoubtedly one of the most Important names in Bulgarian fashion design. What’s more, she is an artist who uses the language of fashion in contemporary art, and a creator of clothes that become a form of art. The models in her fashion shows are elevated to the status of walking sculptures. Through them, the artist speaks about the feminist revolution, about the vacillations and contradictions of contemporary femininity, but also about the complicated dialogue between various social and cultural spaces.

________
Ass. Prof. Mariela Gemisheva is a fashion designer and performance artist, a maker of installations and art objects, a lecturer in Fashion Projects at the Fashion Department at the National Academy of Art. She is famous for her many memorable and innovative experiments in the sphere of fashion and art performance. She posed in front of the camera of Alexander Nishkov for his Self-Portrait (2008). Mariela Gemisheva defines art as “a practice, a piece of communication, a process, a restlessness – a dynamics that you can use to measure your everyday rhythm” (Self-Knowledge – an interview with Vladia Mihaylova on fashion, art and the contemporary woman, Intelligent life, Spring 2008)
Provocation is a key element of her works, which the American curator Roger Conover defines as “unimitable in her ability to turn any limitation into an advantage” (In Search of Balkania catalogue, Roger Conover, 2002.)

* The catalogue signed by Author can be found for the price of 47 BGN on September 21, 22 and 23.
