"Inner Journeys" april - june 2013

Born in 1964 in Bulgaria. Lives and works in Berlin.

Mariana Vassileva’s body of work includes sculptures, videos, photographs and drawings. Her creations are inspired by personal experiences and feelings she underwent on her move from East to West. Her videos take the viewers on meditative journeys through space and time. Curator Ralf Bartholomäus explains that “with simple but nevertheless symbol-laden pictures of great beauty, the artist succeeds in transporting such complex themes as fear, escape, orientation and the search for freedom. At the same time, Mariana Vassileva always manages to subliminally counteract the seemingly harmless casualness of her works.”
