Message to Japan

Thank you for welcoming the “Field Trip Project” and providing us with a platform to connect and dialogue. The project’s intentions are good and genuine. People care, they haven’t forgotten. They want to help the way they know best—through art. I hope my work can provide, even briefly, moments of optimism, beauty, wonder, and play.

Artist information

Atanas Bozdarov is an interdisciplinary artist and designer who focuses on deconstructing the ways in which we read and interpret systems and structures. From quoting fragments of architectural blueprints or game sequences, to generating musical motifs from non-musical sources, he constructs incomplete and surprising structures in order to question our understanding of the working systems around us. He has exhibited at the Athens Institute for ContemporaryArt, AGYU, XPACE, Art Gallery of Mississauga, Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, as part of “Art School (Dismissed),” and “Wade” co-presented by YYZ Artists’ Outlet. Bozdarov holds a B.A. from the University of Toronto and Sheridan College, and currently lives and works between Toronto and Brampton.
