Miryana Todorova


Miryana Todorova is a visual artist who lives and works between Sofia and NY. The major concern in her work is questioning the politics of public space and how people occupy it. Her projects combine painting, performance, video and public interventions to examine the body's articulation in space in relation to temporary structures and potential collapse. By creating versions of movable architecture, she aims to expand the boundaries of personal space. Her interactive situations performed on the street encompass notions of utopia, absurdity, and constant negotiation. Miryana holds a MFA Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts, NY. She has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Europe and the US including: ‘Making It’ at the Deutsche Bank Gallery, NY, Art in Odd Places Public Art festival ‘Pedestrian’, ‘Dwelling-in-Travel’ during the 16th Week of Contemporary Art, Plovdiv, ‘NY Temporary’ at the Center of Photography and the Moving Image, NY, ‘The Bulgarian Pavilion’ at Credo Bonum gallery, Sofia, ‘Object Not Found’ Parlour project, Venice, and ‘Geometry of Time’ at the Regional History Museum, Plovdiv. Her most recent solo show ‘Movables’ opened up in June 2012 at Frosch&Portmann Gallery, NY. Miryana is the recipient of the Gaudenz B. Ruf Award for New Bulgarian Art, category ‘Young Artist’ and was a participant in the 2012 residency program at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
