The 120-year-old Military School in Veliko Tarnovo will turn into be an art gallery for a month before getting demolished. The unique exhibition prepared by Larisa Ivanova and Nikolay Panayotov opens today and will be displayed till the end of August.
The venue might a bit challenging to access, since you have to go through fences, excavations and trenches due to ongoing construction works for new city development plan.
The works of Larisa Ivanova and Nikolay Panayotov are expressively entwined in a network of murals, graffiti and installations. The paintings are not static – they reach beyond the frames and spill out across the walls, on doors and floors, transforming themselves into a game of emotions and imagination.
The creative duo fully utilizes the space for their „1+1=1” exhibition. Originally the exhibition was intended to be held in the Old Post Office building, but they could not obtain permission, so the duo had to be creative and decided to use the Old Military School premises instead. The fact that the building is about to be demolished served as an extra inspiration for them.
