Comunicato stampa

ALMANAC INN presenta Total Devotion, la prima personale in Italia di Stefania Batoeva, artista bulgara di base a Londra.
I quadri prodotti per la mostra continuano un corpus di opere dove i soggetti perdono la loro consistenza simbolica e figurativa. Le forme collassano, suggerendo, invece di definire, il momento in cui un'immagine si solidifica. Corpi fluttuanti, molecole, frammenti si stratificano, trovando il loro equilibrio in una logica interna di ripetizioni e deviazioni. La linearità della narrazione è rotta in una
circolarità e in movimenti tra temporalità e mondi

I confini tra corpi sono persi, dissolti in proiezioni e stratificazioni. Lo spazio è definito da superfici ridistribuite e instabili, proiettando forme e figure, campiture sull'orlo di diventare paesaggi. Sensazioni emergono tra questa architettura, dove l'euforia di nuove riconfigurazioni e desideri formano l'immagine.

ALMANAC INN presents Total Devotion, the first solo exhibition in Italy by London-based Bulgarian artist Stefania Batoeva.
The newly produced paintings in the show continue a body of work where subjects lose their symobolic and figurative consistency. Forms collapse, implying, rather than defining, a moment in which an imagery is solidified. Floating bodies, molecules, fragments stratify, finding their balance in an internal logic of repetition and deviations. The linearity of a narrative is broken into circularity and movements between temporalities and worlds. Boundaries between bodies are lost, dissolved in projections and layering. The space is defined by reshuffling and unstable surfaces, projecting forms and figures, fields on the edge of becoming landscapes. Feelings emerges in between this architecture, where euphoria of new reconfigurations and desire inform the image.
