Mira Yankova

7-20 March 2011

Three five-minute videos of Mira Yankova made for her exhibition in gallery "Arosita" deserve not to just be "viewed" as another video, but to be seen with that intense concentration of our perception, which is needed to understand the visual puzzle, which modern multimedia art often offers us. In these videos, the author intentionally chooses the art genre of video art - movements and sound are conceptually present, refracted through the search for the static image and composition. Therefore, these videos are as if closer to classic works of the "fine" arts than to typical film dynamics. The aesthetics of the frame is contemplative, given in a hidden consistency, such as with the simultaneous hiding and the revealing of the female body in the video FoxTrap.
