Kosyo Minchev

08.12.16 - 23.12.16 | Gallery "Raiko Alexiev"

8th of December, 6 p.m.

The sculpture exhibition of Kosio Minchev in "Raiko Alexiev" Gallery is called "Coarse", which in English means: rough, uncouth, rough, raw, rough, coarse, crude, rude, vulgar, and even obscene. Perhaps the author has not translated the title only because he couldn’t find the exact equivalent of what he wants to share with the audience. But it is obvious that this exhibition is neither clumsy nor even less vulgar. We should really be radical literalists to catch this apparent author "discourtesy". Surely, however, this issue stance for refined way of thinking that is not random and this sculpture may seem rough, but above its surface appears inevitable question of why this is so.
