Gery Georgieva

*New Commission in partnership with Outset Contemporary Art Fund

Gery Georgieva (b. 1986, Varna, Bulgaria) new piece of live work will transform the premises of the Oval Space with a multimedia installation. Taking inspiration from the wellspring or public tap as a traditional site of encounter and intrigue, she will explore the relationship between heritage, folk culture and individualistic empowerment through the figure of the diva. Featuring a soundtrack of new musical collaborations with Endgame and Junior XL as well as a selection of Bulgarian covers, the artist will use her own voice and body as a site for these considerations and reconfigurations. Selected solo exhibitions and projects include: Swimming Pool Projects, Sofia, Bulgaria (2017); Hunter / Whitfield, London, UK (2017); (AND/OR), London, UK (2016) and Frieze Film commissioned by Random Acts Channel 4 for Frieze Art Fair (2015).

This event coincides with Never Be Another You, a solo exhibition by Gery Georgieva at DKUK, Peckham until 17 June.
