“The Artist residency in Leshten motivates me to create three-dimensional, dynamic projects. Created from paper and plaque – waste taken from an industrial zone for recycling materials. They are the material itself for the artwork. Thus, the pollution cycle is interrupted, saving harmful emissions from the incineration of unnecessary rubbish. Part of the artwork is fresh, sterile and anesthetized, the other part is saturated, colored and amorphous. A contrast is created between the architectural and natural environment. ” – Svetli Evgeniev, 2021
