The Tsarino Foundation is an international collective of artists and an architect. While restoring a formerly abandoned village in the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountains, their primary purpose is to function as an art platform.
After running a number of full board group residencies in the past, the foundation is now in the process of setting up a more independent residency programme. The pilot runs for one year. Interested? Contact us!
Olivia Funes Lastra covered all four sides of the gallery with translucent paintings, combined with a text inspired by a landscape. She rubbed, scrubbed and scraped the fabrics with pigments, and used the sea to create rhythm.
We offer accommodation and studio space in seven houses renovated on a very basic level. The general facilities include an outdoor kitchen and a solar-powered charging station for equipment and batteries.
View documentation of wildlife and vegetation caught on camera in and around Tsarino, such as lizards, tortoises, (wild) cows, sheep, mules, donkeys, beetles, spiders, mosses, trees, flowers, bushes and other plants.
