About The Artwork

Kiuranov’s “Untitled”, (Diptych - 2 x 75/144 cm) is a pop-art work. It encompasses visual codes from both popular and high culture. The composition is based on the kinetic image of a ballpoint pen which, when turned up and down, presents in turn a picture of a woman first dressed, then naked. That kind of images were being smuggled into socialist Bulgaria from the West, in rare ballpoints, holograph pictures, etc. They were highly valued in mass culture and became part of the popular city folklore. Such images functioned as a kind of visual dialect of the highbrow art language, which could then take them up to a new context. The work is a diptych, in which the change of the pictures is photographed at 13+13 stop shots. The fact that the composition is monumental, the per se artistic value of the modules, and the highly professional photography, conceptualize the triviality of the original image and transform it into a contemporary work of art. The intentionally faded colors work for the intended retro-effect and add a historic time dimension. In all, we get an esthetization of the banal in the form of a new conceptual object.
