Nika Neelova

Fragments Shored Against The Ruins

Vigo Gallery
12 April – 3 May 2013

Nika Neelova creates current sculptures that derive from selected past and hypothetical future naratives. Exploring the notion of the ruin, the work is addressing segments of existence that have or must collapse, referencing the disillusionement and the disintegration of utopias that ensues from their confrontation with reality. Often remi- niscent of the past, the pieces are also presupposing a future in which this present shifts into a state of disrepair.
