The Fall of Dürer’s Hare

Sofia From 6 February to 15 March 2020

Presentation
The exhibition presents works which can be defined as belonging to the genre of scientific illustration, and are a result of the author’s observations and studies in the field of entomology (the scientific study of insects) and, more specifically, lepidopterology (the scientific study of butterflies), ornithology, and botanics.

The main goal of the artist is the objective, realistic, and unambiguous presentation of specific animal and plant species which have been classified in science in separate taxonomic categories due to stable characteristics which distinguish the particular species and facilitate their classification. In nature however beings live and die without caring about their belonging as species– this is a concept resulting from the human striving to get to know natural phenomena which exist naturally, without any need of definition.

The specific technique of the presented works (tempera), the meaning of the details in the image, and the analytical approach to the represented objects are strongly influenced by two interdependent, yet diverse artistic traditions. On the one hand, the technical realization and the striving to present the idea of something refer to the tradition of icon painting of the Medieval Byzantine art. On the other hand, there is the Renaissance interest in nature and the desire for its authentic representation. “The Fall of Dürer’s Hare” is a part of the title of one of the works in the exhibition which can be referred to as belonging to the genre of scientific illustration. It represents a particular kind of bird but contains in itself various references which relate to Dürer’s famous work.

Among the works which will be presented, there are some which, with their content and some technical features (for example the use of ground wood panels as a base, characteristic for icon painting) cross the boundary of scientific illustration and while using its visual toolkit, express the author’s views about the broken connection between man and nature.
