Their works are distinguished as a concept, structure, form, and their combination of materials (plaster, metal, concrete, stone, wood, resins or paper). They allow to be traced the process of creating an artwork – from designed, through the transformation of the material and the creation in object. Directed towards the abstract, the young artists, cross over the border and break the "classic" view of the form.
Different in temperament, aesthetic and plastic searches with minimal handling and clear expressions, the authors make their provocation to the viewer, affecting the various levels of sensory perception and imagination. The sculptures, conceived as conceptual projects, reflect a variety of creative interpretations. They cover a wide range of physical and spiritual quests, about the purity and synthesis, putting questions to the unexplainable, initial of creation for the immutable link with nature...
The (Un)known young artists looking for field for the realization of their projects with the idea that they should be fulfilled in scale and exposed outside of the gallery and museum spaces where the "objects"- will be in symbiosis with the surrounding urban and park environment. With this exhibition they show something new and different, highlighting the possible alternatives and provide a new direction for understanding of the trends in contemporary Bulgarian sculpture.
