Alice in the Land of the 40's

01.07 - 08.07.2011
An exhibition by Antoniya Marinova
Opening: 01.07.2011 at 18:30
Arosita

"Alice in the Land of the 40's" is a fairy tale of forty-year-olds stories. The exhibition has been provoked by my encounters with death. "Forty" is a figure bearing specific message. It accompanies us from the moment of our birth till we die. On the 40th day we introduce the body to the society; we don't celebrate out 40th birthday; 40 days we fast; 40 days after death we see the soul off on her way to afterlife. So many "40" occasions in our lives to bring joy, smiles, hopes, dreams, consideration, fears and memories. 40 years old are the women who sat before the lens allowing me to catch a glimpse of their lives and tell this tale. The films with which the exhibition was shot have expiry date August 1970. All imperfect details are accidental but all perfections are intentional.

In memory of my mother and with gratitude to my sister.
