Radoslav Maglov, the autor: "We will talk about the body as food, about the exhibition, opening, discovering, closing and hiding, distortion and transgression. We will extend the nostalgia for New Year's holidays with crack; we will burst the baloons full of air from 2017. Sharp your teeth, other sharp objects, pins or safty pins."
"Hoc est enim corpus meum" - a phrase with biblical origin in Latin, which in common translation reads "(For) this is my Body”. Words pronounced for thousands of years that have passed beyond their direct meaning, beyond their marginality. Maglov's latest project summarizes the image simultaneously in a conceptual and radically plastic manner, using universal values specific to the generalized truths that have reached us trough a dead language. The installation of the same name, located in the grand hall of the Raiko Alexiev Gallery, contains a group of sculptural objects that can be viewed as a whole but also as separate works - essences.
