Red White and Cynthia Schwertsik

Invited for a Residency in Balcik, Bulgaria at the Black Sea we were confronted with numerous Monuments of the communist area. Somehow these large-scale sculptures have always been strangely misplaced, but now they seemed almost comically with their outdated aesthetic.

Through performative acts we revived the figures, imagining them in action and referenced the pathos of the poses.
