Ivan Moudov, Stones, 2013
In order to unveil the new project room Casa Cavazzini Museum of Modern and Contemporary art will host Stones, solo show of Ivan Moudov, one of the most well-known artist of the Bulgarian scene. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with RAVE East Village Artist Residency and produced by Vulcano, shows a dozen works made by the artist in the last years as well as site-specific installations created for the museum. In summer 2012 Ivan Moudov spent several weeks in Friuli, in Trivignano Udinese, at RAVE Residency, a farmhouse where live animals saved from the slaughter. On that occasion, the artist projected the work Stones, that will be hosted in the garden of Casa Cavazzini until December and will be a disturbing surprise for the visitor. All the museum will be used by the artist, who envisioned a relocation of his works in order to trigger a forceful short-circuit between the context of the exhibition and his works. A bilingual catalog will be presented at the finissage of the show. The book collects the pictures of the works installed in the museum, texts and interview on the artist, as well as the special project Full Page, and shows the activity of RAVE Residency. RAVE is an international artists residency program hosted in a farmhouse in the countryside of Friuli region (I). It promotes research, production, dialogue and dissemination of contemporary art, in an innovative and experimental art project based on biocentric and anti-speciesism approach. RAVE was created by the artists Isabella and Tiziana Pers in collaboration with Giovanni Marta, and it is a project by East Village Association in partnership with L’Officina, Trieste, Comitato Trieste Contemporanea-Dialogues with the Art of Central Eastern Europe and Hope. Main partners: Vulcano, Venice, and Altevie Technologies, Milan.
Ivan Moudov (Sofia, BG, 1975) is one of the most important artist in the Bulgarian scene. He works primarily with video, photography, installation and performance. His work investigates the relationships of power and constraint between people and institutions showing the traps hidden in the conventions and social rules.
