No Man's Land
An exhibition by Dessislava Terzieva
8 December 2022 – 23 February 2023
For the series “Illegal Аliens” (2022-), the artist transported Bulgarian idioms and store titles onto abandoned stand alone structures in Detroit. The exhibition in Swimming Pool features documentation of the “Illegal aliens” in Detroit. While the photographs look somber and distant, they question whether representation is possible at all, or is it rather demarcating the ghostly presence of these texts that exist as foreign entities in the space they inhabit.
