Upstairs at the Bluecoat 7pm
The theme of the 2010 Liverpool Biennial International exhibition will be Touched. Touched will present artwork that affects the viewer through addressing a total context – mind, body and place; relatedness in space and time.
Invited artist Daniel Bozkhov will be in Liverpool on his first research visit for the international exhibition. The talk will be an opportunity for Bozkhov to discuss his artistic practice in an informal setting, focusing on recent projects and sharing his initial thoughts on the theme of Touched.
Daniel Bozkhov is a Bulgarian born artist who employs variety of media, from fresco to performance and video, and works with professionals from different fields, using different strategies to activate the public space. Bozhkov enters the worlds of genetic science, department mega-stores, world-famous tourist-sites, as an amateur intruder/visitor who also functions as a producer of new strains of meaning into seemingly closed systems.
