VALENTIN ANGELOV/PETKO ARNAUDOV
14 February – 2 March 2017
“Lost Islands” is the title of Valentin Angelov and Petko Arnaudov’s show
that is going to be exhibited from the 14th February to the 2nd of March 2017.
“It’s a well-known fact that islands are becoming extinct. All the virgin ones are now private, and the other ones are no longer wild and beautiful. They say there are no more to be found. So it seems like we are left with the lost ones. Many of these islands were at first found, but later on lost again due to the negligence of their discoverers.
Finding a lost island is difficult. Some of them are so misty, they’re almost invisible, others were found and then simply forgotten, like the Oblivion Island and there’s even one that’s jealously guarding its existence – Phantom island.
Lately, people have trusted science so blindly. They insist on hearing facts, having evidence and they constantly want precise coordinates for everything. Skeptics even argue that lost islands do not exist. But that isn’t the truth. The very fact that they’re hiding from us already proves they do. Not to mention that even the ancient Greeks have talked about these island lands – the Antipodes.
Confused in the hectic anthill of our time, we seem to have forgotten that there are islands made of peace, love and hope, waiting to be rediscovered.”
