Nikoleta Nosovska’s project is part of the exhibition LOCAL BEAUTY, Review of Bulgarian Design 2022 “Auxiliary Set”. The project is part of the “Free-Range Superheroes” series, is inspired by the traditions and customs that awaken her imagination to be rewritten and redrawn in a contemporary visual language and with a personal touch. She is inspired by the folklore image of the Kukeri, who are nowadays seen as heroes with distinctive superpowers. Powers that partly come with eating. “Auxiliary Set” unites the old grandmother’s plates with the new superheroes who give up plastic to return to the roots of divine beings and myths. The set is a visual collaboration between past, present and future.
