UniCredit Studio showed the face of love

UniCredit Studio showed the face of love

The Copy/Paste exhibition was opened at UniCredit Studio. The photography exhibition is by the young photographer Kseniya Margaret and can be seen at the gallery for contemporary art UniCredit Studio.

Copy/Paste is Kseniya's unusual attempt to prove that when two people love each other, they are in symbiosis. Using a mirror, the photographer took photos of 20 couples in love and entwined their images.

The exhibition is part of Month of Photography, which has been supported by UniCredit Studio. 

We have been a partner of Month of Photography for seven years now.  Each exhibition that we show is more exciting than the previous one.  We are particularly happy to host Kseniya’s debut exhibition, because she has a great talent and her works are particularly interesting.  UniCredit Studio’s mission is to support young artists in Bulgaria and their art,” said Giacomo Volpi, Member of the MB and Director of Retail Banking at UniCredit Bulbank, at the opening of the Copy/Paste exhibition.

We will have the change to enjoy 3 debut exhibitions during the last couple of days of Month of Photography. One of them is Copy/Paste by Kseniya Margaret.  The exhibition shows us the “joint face of love” and is worth the visit at the nice UniCredit Studio,” said Yuriy Treyman, leading coordinator of the European Month of Photography.

I am genuinely grateful to Month of Photography and UniCredit Studio for the opportunity to exhibit my photographs. I came up with the idea of Copy/Paste after I noticed that the couples that had been together for a longer period begin to look alike.  And I wondered if we fall in love with people that look like us or if love makes us look like our partner. I still don’t have a clear answer myself, but the exhibition shows the whole that consists of a male half and a female half,” added Kseniya Margaret.

Her project Copy/Paste was launched in January 2018 and over 100 couples that are in love applied. Following a very difficult selection process she picked out 20. Interestingly, no matter how different the individuals are, the mirror helps you realize how similar they look in fact.

You are invited to see the debut exhibition by the young photographer Kseniya Margaret at UniCredit Studio (7 Sveta Nedelya Square, Sofia) until 27 July.

After the opening of the photographic exhibition, the guests of UniCredit Studio enjoyed a DJ party featuring DJ Pascal Junior and DJ Fabrizio Parisi.
