BRIGHTON PHOTO FRINGE


4UZHBINA is a photographic installation, created collaboratively by the artists Krasimira Butseva and Lina Ivanova, for Brighton Photo Fringe 2018.
The word 4uzhbina, {chuzhbina}, describes a non-existent place, an illusory location, which cannot be found on any map, nevertheless it could be accessed by anybody. It is simply an invention of the tongue, existing only in the spoken and written Bulgarian language. The term contains simultaneously the essence of a no-man’s land and a dolce vita.
The artists exchanged material and processes at a distance, while one of them was in the UK and the other visiting their native country Bulgaria. A discourse on memory, experience, family history and ancestry was instigated by this separation and resulted in interventions on show here.
