Civil Position

Civil Position

Boryana D Rossa. Civil Position, 2007.

Description:
“Civil Position” is a public intervention in which the artist knelt down at Eagle’s Bridge Square at Sofia Center for about two hours, with handcuffs on her hand and a switcher on her head. The leaflets spread around declared the artist's appeal for pro-active society. The posture and the attributes were inspired by a police action at the same place. “Civil Position” is a comment on the political passiveness of contemporary Bulgarian society, but also a symbol of the civil position of the individual towards a state that has no concerns of people’s needs.
