Mirian Kolev

Experimental music

Name: Mirian

Where are you from? From Svishtov, but I live in Tryavna.

Describe yourself in 1-3 sentences (1-3 Words): I may have a few different modes that I change frequently. Sometimes I’m in a very chill-out, lazy mode and sometimes I switch it into a very dynamic mode.

Who is “Artist”? A person who creates something.

What is extinct? I don’t think there is such a thing.

What should exist? Everything that exists, obviously must exist.

How do you feel about mistakes? I feel sorry for them. When it comes to me, I try to learn from them and I can recommend that to everyone – it’s good to be aware of your mistakes.

Superpowers? My ability to disconnect from my surroundings.

What is art for? I think it serves, mostly, to form a feeling in people and to make them think about something. I think good art is art that you can immerse yourself in and forget about the surrounding world, or at least for a moment.

Mirian Kolev lives and works in the Balkan Mountains, and presents his work throughout different geographical areas in Europe and Asia. He often collaborates with visual and performance artists and other musicians, and participates in multidisciplinary projects. His music is minimalist, atmospheric and discreetly psychedelic, and improvisation is an essential part of each of his live performances, making it an expressive soundtrack of time and space. At times his music is bleak, at times cosmic, and melancholy is often present in it as well as in the world surrounding him.

Ole Meergans (*1988) is a visual artist and lives in Berlin. He studied sculpting at Berlin University of the Arts, visiting Manfred Pernice’s class. In joint exhibitions or in projects in public areas, he deals with classic sculpting, room installations and the architectonic space. Meergans is interested in art in buildings, above all from the former GDR, and the issue of figuration und abstraction. Geometric, preformed concrete blocks without any use – similar to those in the Berlin prefabricated housing estates – can be found in his works, together with figurative or even deformed busts of gypsum or bronze, or 3D-printed. He is a member of the COLLCOLL artists’ collective, which has set itself the task of organising discourses on reclaiming the city, participation and self-empowerment through artistic intervention.
