National Gallery Kvadrat 500 presents the exhibition WE/RE NATURE BORJANA VENTZISLAVOVA - 17/02/2022 - 17/04/2022
The exhibition, entitled Ghost Lights, consists of a series of photographs depicting both natural landscapes and elements of civilization — an ATM, a petrol station, a gun shop, etc.—and, in all, is the light symbolizing man and his presence/absence. According to Borjana Ventzislavova, ‘Light is a particularly important symbol: it can be a beginning but also an end, can be hot or cold, sustain life, but also destroy it.’ In her film, ‘We The Nature’, the artist gives nature a voice that sends its messages to people, calling for a change in the way we treat the environment and its resources once and for all, before it is too late. The ‘We Are/Were’ installation, which transfers elements of nature and light directly into the gallery, is also on display.
The topic of ecocide is poorly covered in Bulgaria. Borjana Ventzislavova’s works draw our attention to the fact that causing substantial damage to the environment, the destruction or loss of the ecosystem of a certain territory to the extent that the life of its inhabitants is or will be seriously impaired and endangered, must be legally terminated.
