Abstract:

  • Boyadjiev’s is an exhibition organised by FACT for ISEA98Revolution and hosted by the Department of Fine Arts.

    In Revolution for All, Luchezar parodies the seductiveness of power in his computer-controlled video installation. Starting with an over-exposed projection of a famous photograph of Lenin orating to the revolutionary masses of St. Petersburg, during the October Revolution of 1917/18, the piece captures anonymous faces entering the exhibition space, with visitor 666 finally replacing Lenin himself.
