Biography

Georgieva’s practice merges glitzy pop aesthetics and digital culture with her Eastern European heritage through performance, film, sound installation, and music-making. Scrambling references, and with a predilection for sparkling veneers, Georgieva constructs an ambiguous artistic vernacular. For the multi-media installation Solo Romantika (2014), a silver lamé drape curtain used in pop stars’ tours draws to reveal a video projection in which a figure is covered in glitter. As her alter-ego Vera Modena, Georgieva performs a cappella laments over Bulgarian beats, using the presence of her body to explore notions of authenticity and belonging.
