Garden City

 24.04. - 26.05.2015

Vernissage: Donnerstag, dem 24. April 2015, um 19:00 Uhr

Garden city is the first joint project of Nikolay Sardamov and Ventsislava Vasileva. Despite working in different fields, they have collaborated for years, so it is no surprise how natural, easy and harmonious the interplay between jewellery and photography is in this presentation. As an element of urban environment, city parks are not only social, but also personal
space in terms of emotional experience – space where different moods and needs are projected. Following their own rhythm, emotion and aesthetics, each author builds their own image of the “garden city”. For Nikolay Sardamov the “garden city” is an aesthetic experience, a place inspiring with the harmonious interplay between the natural beauty of plants and their geometric subordination. In order to develop this sense of symbiosis between geometric and organic in this collection he again uses the circle as the main starting element. Through its multiple and systematic repetition the base forms of each piece are created. From these base forms Nikolay Sardamov builds up complex, unexpected and exciting compositions. At this level the geometric presence seems no longer to be in the lead, whereas the sense of organicity gets stronger. It is most easily detected in the delicate and harmonious finale – an aesthetic combination of rock crystal and gold.The “Garden city” collection includes necklaces and earrings. The pieces are initially built in wax and afterwards cast in silver. Ventsislava Vasileva’s “Garden city” is a place of solitude. A place where silence allows you to be alone with yourself, to hear your own thoughts. A place which energizes you with its aesthetics and tranquility. There you can “stop” for a moment. And
then “go on”, taking away images, fragrances and noises. Ventsislava Vasileva presents her “garden city” in a series of eight photographs, including large format portrait photographs and landscapes as well as background fragments in small format.
