De 28/10 a 26/11 Toby Christian apresentou “The News”, sua mais recente exposição individual, na galeria Swimming Pool (Sofia, Bulgária). Composta por instalações feitas a partir da reutilização de jornais, a proposta do trabalho surgiu a partir de uma conversa de Christian com dois outros artistas sobre notícias atuais em um restaurante em Liverpool, Inglaterra, na qual os mesmos afirmaram que preferiam não acompanhar os acontecimentos atuais – uma vez que estes costumavam os deixar dez esperançosos com o mundo.

A afirmação levou Christian a refletir sobre a rapidez e efemeridade da informação – o que o remeteu a uma lembrança carinhosa de sua infância, quando sua mãe o ensinou a fazer fogueiras a partir jornais velhos enrolados em formatos de nó.

“The News” foi concebida a partir do intercâmbio de ideias entre o artista, Max Slaven, curador e diretor da David Dale Gallery (Glasgow, Escócia) e Viktoria Draganova, diretor da Swimming Pool (Sofia, Bulgaria)”, marcou a primeira exposição individual do artista no pais e conta com a curadoria da David Dale Gallery (Glasgow).

Toby Christian presents “The News”, his first solo exhibition in Bulgaria.

From the 26th of October to the 26th of November, Toby Christian presented “The News”, his latest solo exhibition, at the Swimming Pool gallery (Sofia, Bulgaria). The exhibition consisted of installations created through the reuse of old newspapers – a concept that came to Christian during a conversation between himself and two other artists during a dinner at a Liverpool restaurant. While discussing current news and affairs, one of the artists mentioned that they had stopped following current news and affairs, due the fact that they tended to induce a state of anxiety on the both. 

The statement caused the artist to reflect upon the speed and ephemeral nature of news and information in our current reality – a thought that also reminded him of a fond memory from his childhood, when his mother taught him to build fires from old newspapers tied up in knots.

“The News” was conceived through a series of exchanges between the artist himself and Max Slaven, curador and director of the David Dale Gallery (Glasgow, Escócia) and Viktoria Draganova, director of the Swimming Pool (Sofia, Bulgaria), and marked the artist’s first solo exhibition in the country and is curated by the David Dale Gallery (Glasgow).
