Rada Boukova


Rada Boukova was born 1973 in Sofia. She lives and works in Paris. Whether it is video, photographs, installations, objects or exhibition projects, she explores the remains of the ideological, economic, and social changes. For her, art is a game of forms and colors, but also a carefully chosen word or word pun, which is rooted in simple but unexpected formal analogies.

Selected solo exhibitions include "What energy do we put into transforming things, with undisguised pleasure", Sariev Contemporary, Plovdiv (2018); "Magic Spring", Dream Art Fair, London (2017); “Alice Georges”, One night stand gallery, Sofia (2017); “The Sky Is a Color”, Sariev Contemporary, Plovdiv (2014); “Start a New Victory”, FUTURA, Prague (2013); “Un Sage est sans idée”, Patricia Dorfmann Gallery, Paris (2013); “Colour Blue”, Stork Gallery, Rouen (2012); “Me and a German Girl”, Patricia Dorfmann Gallery, Paris (2011); “Still life”, Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia (2009).
