LIGHT MATTERS. Public presentation by Vadim Fishkin, Goethe-Institut Bulgarien, Sept 9, 2017.

Organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia and Goethe-Institut Bulgarien, with financial support from the Programme "Culture" of Sofia Municipality – 2017.


Vadim Fishkin (born 1965 in Penza, USSR) lived in Moscow until 1996; he currently lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

His work explores the relationships between science, personal experience, desire, and the imagination, between metaphysics and pragmatism, and between the artificial and the real.

The artist succeeds in uncovering subtle connections that arouse viewers’ curiosity, yet leaves them guessing about the ultimate meaning. Fishkin’s main area of investigation is science and its study methods as he uses technological advances for essentially poetic purposes and many of his works are informed by his distinctive sense of humor.
