=Изложба “Жега, жажда, живот”
This was one of the main activities on d program of d 16 edition of Balkan Youth Festival, Sandanski, Bulgaria. Regular the organization makes this exhibition in Hotel Sandanski but as we decide for this year better place for the type of art that was presented the place for this year was pretty visited coffee bar in Sandamski, named ICEBERG.
On the second day of the official start of this year festival [08.09.11], in d morning, in 11:00 o’clock all d volunteers, members of d music bands & d other participants @ BYF we went to ‘Iceberg’ for d official opening of d exhibition and d most lovely morning coffee.
The day before, me with d technical group of volunteers @ BYF visited Iceberg and arrange d place with our art works. This year there were two artists presenting their art pieces in a front of d BYF audience and d local young people from Sandanski that are customers at Iceberg. The first artist Blagoj Cicerkov is young photographer. He’s 18 years old and in d beginning he was working with d camera only as a hobby, but after he start with journalism and writing articles for different media this becomes his first job.
For this exhibition he do a special tour around d Balkans and visit Macedonia, Greece and some parts of Bulgaria, or cities as Ohrid, Struga, Thessaloniki, Sofia and Varna and tries to do special shoots for this year topic: heat, thirst, life. ..
The second author/ artist that presents his art works at BYF is me. For this year expo I decide to present them one of my conceptual art photography projects called „[3e]“ (tree) where I shoot one trees street in France (Montpelier) decorated with some spherical balls. ..I also present one project „animated friends“, acrylic on paper-board and the last part of my expo was mix of some visual/ graphic posters.
Emilia Marinova, the director of Balkan Youth Festival, open this year exhibition with positive words first for Us. d artists, then for our art works and for d end of her speech for d volunteers and congratulations for all of us, participants of this year edition of d festival. Blagoj was pleased to be with Us this year and to share his photography, and me, I was pretty much surprised how is possible so many people to have need for coffee in d morning. 🙂
Few media, including d national TV station were interested in our exhibition, and hopefully we’ve done a good thing with our works and our messages. Balkan Youth Festival is d best place for meeting young people from d Balkans and Europe and sharing our experience!
