In a TV interview in 2003, Berlin mayor Claus Wowereit famously said that the German capital is “poor but sexy”. His phrase has since gained wider international recognition and been adopted by contemporary artists around the world -- a personal slogan occasionally contradicted by the sensationally high sales of some of the artists’ works. To launch its 2011/12 season, the Sariev Gallery has chosen this slogan to present a group of Bulgarian-born artists living in different European cities who work in a variety of genres and media. The works selected are indicative of the artists’ main areas of interest – a number of them were created especially for this exhibition.
