Raya Stefanova’s project is part of the exhibition LOCAL BEAUTY, Review of Bulgarian Design 2022. The project Fountain 01 and Fountain 02 is a clash between the solid and the liquid, the permanent and the fleeting. The series of fountains made for the exhibition is composed of basic structural forms, contrasted with an unexpected and delicate material such as the beeswax – resistant to water, but not to time. It is locally sourced and entirely biodegradable, leaving no negative footprint in the environment. The project is an ephemeral expression of the typical forms of fountains in Bulgaria, but unlike them, the objects in the exhibition are temporary.
