Sofia Bachvarova is a recent graduate from the New York Academy of Art with a specific interest in on-site installations, which include oil paintings and sculptural elements as well as sound and video projection. Bachvarova is interested in the visceral connection between her ‘spellbound time traps” and the “experiencer”, i.e., the interactive viewer. For her current site-specific installation at 70 Spruce Street, Sofia Bachvarova takes inspiration from Egyptian mythology and architecture and recreates a tomb-like space for the “weighing of souls”. It is love lost and love won that each “soul” must revisit on their way to entry or departure from the present.

Because of the dynamic nature of this project, I am always looking for new and interesting architectural sites to present the work in, as well as collaborating with fellow artists on sound, dance performance and writing for this ongoing project.
