Gallery Hristo Tsokev
Curated by Deyan Boyev

Within the saturated cultural events programmed for the Gabrovo Biennale 2022, part of the new partnerships the Hristo Tsokev art gallery initiated is with the artist Lars Nordby. He presents new original artworks for the gallery.

His creative work strongly expresses the current social theme in the area of art. The inequalities, divisions, and greed often provoke the author's sensitivity, who recreates them through installations, performances, and photography. Lars Nordby examines the obsessive human search for identity and ideological affiliation. A severe concept of his creative inspirations is the theatrical one and its presence in everyday life. His approach toward the idea and the material for creating the artwork and the plot is strictly conceptual, containing many reference points.

These predispositions are qualitatively creating a new situation for the Gabrovo audience. It will have the opportunity to see an approach to art that is charged with aesthetics and a considerable amount of intellectual material. Nordby's philosophy, the analytical type of consideration of a project, and the classical style of a gallery space all come together into a synergy, which experiments with impressions, associations, and emotions.
