Immemorable Landscapes

Bulgarian society has seen great social and economic turmoil since it radically turned its back on communism. ‘Immemorable Landscapes’ offers a revaluation of an era whose impact is still so palpable. Researching period architecture, specifically the use of concrete, Mila Chorbadzhieva takes distinctive details from monuments that have stood neglected for decades and casts them in a mix of concrete and resin, to be reintroduced as architectural elements or decoration. Mila says of her visual reminders: “To confront, accept and know our past, to shake off the shame and negativism – this seems to be the only way to move on.”
