Pages of a Diary

exhibition by Sevda Semer
Vladimir Iliev Collection

Five years ago +359 Gallery and Sevda Semer showed the exhibition “One Perfect Day”, which presented eight visual diaries drawn every day during 2017. The diaries resulted in a book with selected drawings and text by Stefan Ivanov, as well as a limited series of prints – from them, Sevda learned the screen printing technique at Sito Studio. In this exhibition at Charta Gallery, these editions are presented, as well as the eight author’s videos for the diaries.
