Veronika Tzekova’s project kopCHETATa project
/installation in public space and flashmob/
The project is specially developed for Kopchetata – a popular place for meeting people in the city. The artist uses small round seats lined in the square in front of the Plovdiv municipality building to visualize a new approach to language as a form of communication and vehicle of content. Through different ways of writing, fonts and their attribute series CDoupbles (portmanteau from couples and doubles) and SyllaBLEndings (portmanteau from syllable and blendings) uncover possible meanings in various words and word combinations in Bulgarian, English, French, German and turn them into a specific concrete poetry. The words are chosen to construct unexpected links in a space where the bisector is connected to happiness, meaning to speech, the end to heaven, creating to giving and many more.
On the 15th and 16th of September at 6 everyone will be welcome to the square to read their chosen word or words as part of the collective reading flash mob lead by the artist.
Veronica Tzekova is the first Bulgarian artist presented by the Open Arts Foundation as part of the In Situ European platform for art in public spaces.
