Union of Bulgarian Artists / Exhibitions / ArchiveWhere the text is transforming into image (Geophilosophy) - exhibition of Dorit Feldman


15.06.17 - 28.06.17 | Gallery - bookstore "Sofia Press"

The artist presents a series of 15 works created in the last few years and also four photographs taken in 2017. A part of the works is related to specific places in Bulgaria and was created specifically for this exhibition. The collection is also enriched by a video installation called „The Words of the Earth“.

The works are related to the concept of „geophysics“, which combines the territory as a geographical location and its meaning, and was introduced in the 1990s by the French philosophers Gilles Deliez and Felix Gatari.

According to the curator Shirley Meshullam, the exhibition presents „reflective-conceptual foundations“, a combination of images, texts, historical documents, ancient maps and ideas borrowed from disciplines such as theology, philosophy, archeology, poetry, and modern ideas taken from modern researches.

Dorit Feldman is undoubtedly a conceptual artist whose works are primarily aesthetic. She captures the uniqueness of her homeland of Israel, but at the same time her artistic vision is consistent with global conceptual and visual ideas.
