Miroirs Brisés 

Miroirs Brisés /Broken Mirrors is an exploration of the images that belong to us through our experiences. Those that have shaped our Paris. The Paris that we share but yet belongs only to our memories individually. A dichotomy that brings us freedom and solitude. A choice to live in this transience that opened our eyes to the poetry of its grey skies. The one that tempts us to get lost in its streets. The one that invites us to burn our lungs with ashes. The city is a mirror to our inner world, fragmented in a collage of images, sounds and language. Much as this is a multi/authored narrative, we invited others to share their Paris in a series of narratives that intertwine into one story. Based on the collected stories, we’ll create an ephemeral video installation, that extends this multi-authored film into a multi-layered, collective experience. This is an invitation not only to observe but also to co-create and discuss the role of the city within and beyond.


„Pastiche is an artistic work in a style that imitates that of another work, artist or period or such that consists of a medley of pieces taken from various sources. Every young artist inevitably creates pastiches. As Jean-Luc Godard famously said, “It's not where you take things from — it's where you take them to.” Kalina Lukanova The short movies that Kalina would like to share with the public in Sofia constitute a collage of impressions, connected to the discovery of a city- Paris, and the disconnection, the departure from that same city. The first short movie “Quatre ou cinq choses que je sais d'elle” was shot during her stay in Paris and depicts the contemporary Parisian society through the eyes of four characters. The second short was filmed in Lisbon in the period following her departure from Paris. This exhibition is an attempt to reconnect the pieces that Kalina is made of, a pastiche in itself, after 10 years spent away from her hometown - Sofia. Kalina Lukanova graduated from the Paris College of Art Academy, Paris (2017). Her debut work is the short film “Quatre ou cinq choses que je sais d'elle”. In April 2018, Kalina organized her first exhibition - “Miroirs Brisés” in Paris.
