Little Bird Place Gallery presents the solo exhibition “Objects of Heaviness” by Alexander Lazarkov.

The young visual artist questions the notion of “weight” both physically and metaphorically-psychologically. To what extent are we dependent on physical phenomena, to what extent do we recognize them and how clear is our relationship with them? The works are the result of numerous experiments with materials, techniques and the challenges of their (im)possible interactions. As an inventor, Alexander Lazarkov is leading us on the path of unsuspected certainty.

Alexander Lazarkov is graduating in Graphics from the National Academy of Arts, Bulgaria. He is excited about experimenting with ideas and means of expression, constantly surprising with new approaches and interpretations of topics from the fields of biology, ecology, chemistry, physics and psychology. In 2020, he won the Cubos del tentaciones competition in Bilbao, Spain. He is also one of the residents of Little Bird Artist Residency in the village of Leshten(Bulgaria) in 2020 (Joint initiative of Little Bird Place and Art & Culture Today). In 2021, Alexander was nominated for the prestigious BAZA Young Artists Award. He has already realized several solo exhibitions.

In his words: “This exhibition is inspired by Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, written in 1915. Every day we immerse ourselves in a world full of temptations for our perception, which is ready to absorb everything like a sponge. This brings the question – What do we really see and why do we see it? We will hardly ever understand the whole answer to this question. But in order to try partly, we need the basic principles, constant and variable, to explain to us what is happening around us. Here comes Einstein’s Theory and how it places gravity as one of the constants in our universe. And the fact that everything around us has a mass, and when the mass is the leading constant everything else is guided by it.

In the exhibition I visualize the basic principles and interactions between gravity, the objects dependent on it and their analogy with us.

Everything is subject to gravity, but most of all we ourselves and what we give weight and importance to. This raises the question of what we find heavy and whether we are talking about physical or metaphorical weight?”
