“Through the Pupil”

The exhibition of Hristina Milanova’s black and white photographs was initially to be accompanied by music created by her together with the English composer Sam Williams to emphasise the temporal and environmental aspects of two of the key aspects on which her works revolve: organic and architectural constructions.

It is the temporal structure that underlies both artistic facets: in the motif chosen for his photographs, the natural forms stand out for their geometric configuration. On them he introduces an action that leaves its mark on the image only possible by playing with the mechanical possibilities of photography, i.e. with the exposure time. This time factor, typical of music, adds geometric lines to the image, which again insist on this structural ingredient, pointing out that it is also the basis of the musical composition. There are also symbolic references in the inclusion of natural elements such as water and wind in the musical pieces and in the images of knotted strings. The latter, as we are told, elude the bonds imposed by power that subdue freedom of action and thought, but this interpretation, not being expressed in the work, gives play to this icon: its semantic richness lends itself to relating it to union or to oppression. In this case it is the eloquence of this image that dominates over the artist’s intention.
