The project that Neno Belchev will present at Espai sant Marc on the 24th of July is “About some features, specifics and consequences of “street” video art with “poor” quality in one frame”
The project ironically combines the creative approaches of video art with street art and actionism in urban environments. Examining their different aspects, the project aims to find new public language. It uses the different opportunities, which are offered by these seemingly different media through its innovative approach to them in a way that aims to maximize the impact. Technically, the project works with handy and found materials, thereby reducing budget expenses to a minimum. It elegantly avoids the hooligan approach in street art and puts social messages in a new context.
