Krassimir Terziev

Krassimir Terziev is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher whose work spans a diversity of media, including video/film, photography, painting/drawing, and text, questioning the boundaries between reality and fiction, while exploring the manifold transitions and tensions between a globalized world, dominated by overwhelming multiplicity of symbolic imagery, and its material groundings in technological, physical and human ‘hardware’.

He holds a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Sofia University (2012) and an MA degree in Painting from the National Academy of Arts, Sofia (1997).

In 2015 he had a solo exhibition “Between the Past That is About to Happen and the Future That Has Already Been” at the National Gallery, Sofia, curated by Iara Boubnova. Recently he showed work in exhibitions at Structure Gallery (Sofia, 2017), Argos Centre for Art & Media (Brussels, 2017, 2016, 2015), Gaia Gallery (Istanbul, 2017), SARIEV Contemporary (Plovdiv, 2017, 2016), Osage Art Foundation, (Hong Kong, 2015), Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow, 2015), Moderna Galerija (Ljubljana, 2015).

He is the author of the academic monograph “Re-composition. Author, Media and Artwork in the Age of Digital Reproduction” (East-West & ICA-Sofia: 2012) and at the moment is a fellow in Advanced Academia Programme of the Centre for Advanced Studies - Sofia.
