5 BOXES (space and shape)

The boxes, presented in this show are conceived before and apart from the texts and all of their knowledge and terms gathered from the internet. This actually bonds them even better and introduces the viewer to a particular state of predetermination, state where one remains a mere reflection of another self. These reflective voids retain the function of an inner light. As it slides over the form, this hidden light emerges from the deepest, endless darkness. It produces shape, and consequently image, one and the same and permanently different.
Several highlighted phrases from the text (based on Wikipedia), attached serve as a “legend”, which could serve, if necessary, for a more literal reading of the effects that can be monitored in the discrete objects of the exhibition.
The other text is an interview with Nicola Tesla, the Bulgarian translation of which was also recently published in the internet. The presentation of these two texts in reference to the work of Stela Vasileva can be interpreted widely. As it may seem, again, in a very eloquently gracious way things look the way you see them only because of the qualities of light listed here. But let’s stop using text explaining all that, when we don’t need to.
