Half-Truth / 1-Year Warranty – Pravdoliub Ivanov / Daniel Knorr.
Pravdoliub Ivanov’s Half-Truth is an installation in two parts, which was first shown in Sozopol (1999), then in Sofia, Switzerland and Germany. During the Night of Museums and Galleries, the project will take the form of inscriptions sprayed immediately in front or around all of the Night’s locations.
Daniel Knorr’s 1-Year Warranty also comes in two parts. It was first shown in Skulpturenpark Berlin Zentrum in 2007. During the Night, one part of it – a “mother label” made of enamel with the artist’s name, the work’s title and the phrase “Public Space” will be mounted on the façade of the Sariev Gallery, while the same sign will be stencilled onto façades throughout Plovdiv as the artist’s “stamp of approval”. The work is a commentary on the contemporary graffiti culture.
