In his newest artistic work between performance and exhibition, Ivo Dimchev is going to explore seven of his favorite creative activities: teaching, writing, painting, writing songs, giving concert, filming, giving an interview. Each of these seven activities might morph and transgress along the way. The visitors can come and go any time and witness this unusual laboratory. They will be able to see also an exhibition of videos, sculptures, paintings and photos by the artist.

There is a moment when things you love to do become a nightmare. And then there is a moment when this very nightmare might become an opening. Whether a nightmare or a blessing, it doesn’t really matter to me. Because I prefer flying in Hell over crouching in Heaven. I can subvert my work only from the inside. And that is what I mostly expect from myself approaching this long-durational workaholic meditation. IVO DIMCHEV
