The Razklon Gallery is now officially open! Watch the reveal here. Miná Minov is showing his work Cheapest trophy from the local trophy shop (2012 - 2020) until 03/07/20. Visit our online catalogue for more information and pictures.
Our first furniture experiment using materials from the village instead of locally bought pinewood. We salvaged old beams and planks (oak and beech) from a collapsed house to make a small wooden table for the L-shape, modelled after original tables found in Tsarino.
Due to COVID-19, we have had to delay the official opening of our new exhibition space. However, we are now accepting proposals! The Razklon Gallery will open in June. This way, we hope to continue functioning as an art platform, hosting artists from all around the world.
Finished! The showcase is called Pазклон Галерия/Razklon Gallery, ‘razklon’ meaning 'split' in Bulgarian. The official opening will take place in March and we will soon release an open call for work to be shown in the showcase this year. For more info, see Razklon.
We also gave this room a ceiling, and we fixed the holes. To keep the original wall decoration intact, we only painted the renovated parts. Stay tuned! Spoiler alert: there will be furniture.
Recently completed welding the showcase and putting in the glass! It is now ready for transport to its final destination.
Almost done building the stone base! It is built according to traditional methods, resembling the characteristic stone structures that can be found throughout the region, e.g. in houses or walls.
This room now features a well-needed ceiling and freshly painted walls. We used the traditional technique of mixing lime with water and applying it with a broom.
We gave this room a new wooden floor to add to the warmth of its exposed clay walls.
We are busy building a small showcase, situated by a fork in the road between Chorbadzhijsko and Tsarino. We will use these black flint stones to incorporate signage into the sides of its base, indicating the direction to the three villages connected by the road: В, Ч, and Ц.
We are busy renovating the interior of the infamous L-shaped house! As a premature finishing touch (we aren’t finished yet) we also did some fresh exterior detailing.
Construction work was recently completed on the restoration of a large house in the heart of the village, using traditional building methods and materials such as oak wood and natural stones.
