Doll, 4 photographs, sound, stone object, 2007
This project deals with the cafeteria and pastry shop Tiger Steps in the TZUM (Central Department Store) in Soﬁa. TZUM was the most exclusive shopping mall in Soﬁa. It is situated in the very center of the Bulgarian capital. It has already been known as a so-called shopping paradise during socia-list times. Even Sundays, one could buy goods here which cannot be found elsewhere. After its pri-vatization the new owners of the mall built a new cafeteria and pastry shop that displays a real tiger in a cage of glass. The female tiger named Schakti has spent already four months of its life in here. In the installation a tiger-doll tells this curious story in an ironic way from the tigers point of view. Objects and photographs are proof to the truthfulness of the story.
