There is a moment when things you love to do become a nightmare. And then there is a moment when this very nightmare might become an opening. Whether a nightmare or a blessing, it doesn’t really matter to me. Because I prefer flying in Hell over crouching in Heaven. I can subvert my work only from the inside. And that is what I mostly expect from myself approaching this long-durational workaholic meditation.
Six hours of performance divided into eight acts, each assigned to a creative activity – from poetry to teaching via drawing, song or video – Avoiding deLIFEath is a total and multiple performance/exhibition. The famous, prolific and singular Bulgarian artist presents a multimedia show anchored in reality as well as artifice, which dares to pose the head-on question: how can we avoid death over the course of our life?
