Kamen Stoyanov´s works revolve around the social realities our time: migration, uses of public space, urban life. For his photographes and videos Stoyanov selects emotionally charged imagery full of narrative allusions. On a black wall we see only a section of a shirt with a fly, hands and an accordion. Just as fleeting as the sounds. like a memory that is vanishing, a faceless person plays here. In this reduced video the fate of all street musicians seems captured in a black space, confirming the exchangeability of all streets.
