Nedko Solakov

Nedko Solakov (born 1957) is a storyteller par excellence. He tells stories with humor and irony shown in cycles of
drawings in ink on smaller format paper. In his narratives, Solakov deals with universal subjects as well as
autobiographical elements. Here, the collapse of the communist system at the end of the 1980s proved to be a
crucial moment in shaping his work. Since 1990, when he was presenting his work "Top Secret", which was also on
view in 2007 at Documenta 12, for the first time, Solakov has enjoyed an international reputation in the world of
contemporary art.

He has exhibited extensively in Europe and the United States. His work was featured in the 48th, 49th, 50th and
52nd Venice Biennial, Manifesta 1, Rotterdam, documenta 12. He had solo shows at
The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Sofia City Gallery, Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Museu do Chiado, Lisbon, Stichting De
Appel, Amsterdam, CCA Kitakyushu, Japan, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina SofĂ­a, Madrid, The Israel
Museum, Jerusalem, Kunsthaus Zurich, Casino Luxembourg, Rooseum Malmoe, O.K Centrum Linz, Kunstmuseum
Bonn, Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, and Institut Mathildenhoehe, Darmstadt. Among his recent projects are solo
exhibitions at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, Fondazione Galleria Civica Trento.
