These Stones

Made in Sofia, Bulgaria, These Stones deals with local histories as spatial manifestations in the public realm.  Through a series of recorded interviews the work traces the changes in urban landscape which took place in the city over the last decades. The interviews serve as the starting point for an exploration of both personal and collective memory in a post soviet society. It unpicks the complex relationship between national identities, the commemoration of historical narratives and the public debate around monuments within this particular context.
