ЮНАК [juˈnʌk] - YONAK
Bloomberg New Contemporaries / Royal College of Art

A brave fellow is bound to have wounds.

ЮНАК [juˈnʌk] is a word often used in Bulgarian folklore to describe a brave and intrepid youth.

The work depicts a series of “unnecessary memories” from the artist’s childhood. Reminiscences, not related to a significant event, unnecessarily stored in his mind. Ephemeral dreams of past moments. A futile gaze at a stranger’s face or a meaningless peer at motionless object.

YONAK was part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2019.
