Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1992, she lives and works in Paris.
bilyana furnadzhieva Nature is the first human reality. Attentive to
the sonic and formal variety of the natural forces and phenomena bilyana
translates them into a visual and sound narrative.
The lines, colors
and shapes in her artworks are intended to pacify the relationship of
man to his environment at the time of a significant ecological threat.
bilyana creates a unique language in which opposing parts collide - neat
elements, made by herself and raw elements, found during her moments of
exploration. She gets comfortable with subjects, materials, mediums -
from drawing, collage, sculpture to musical composition and editing.
"nature is our primary reality. I have always been moved by the variety of its colors, its multiple shapes and its fascinating sounds. I delve into myths to find traces of the ancient witches. in my opinion, the role of the witch today is to get inspired as much as possible from forces and phenomena and to translate them into a visual and sound narrative.
crystal sound is presented in the form of sculptures and musical performances, reflecting my desire to link physical form and music. I started out with the idea of making peculiar and unfamiliar objects on my own in search of unexpected sonorities. the research of the specific resonance of the sculptures is achieved through the use of porcelain and pure metal oxides, which create new timbres, specific to each object. the works presented combine precise elements, made by myself and raw elements, found during my moments of exploration.
composed through the use of scores, my musical pieces are conceived as questions - answers
between soundtracks, recorded instruments and live played parts. the pieces interact with
the noises and the sound context, an evocation of passing time, the ephemeral and the
transitory. the rhythms played are for me the primary language that makes our bodies vibrate."
