Blurring the boundaries between performative action and installation, Bakalov develops a series of methods to introduce the audience into a poetic universe by addressing them one-on-one through different senses. “PURE” is designed as a guided parkour that investigates the influence of imagination and narratives on our perception of reality and their impact on the relations that compose “Мe“and the “other things“.

PURE is the second part of the ETERNIA trilogy, inspired by Baruch Spinoza’s “eternity” concept, and is closely related to the birth and the death.

PURE is a collective ritual that measures the essence of our human condition through experiencing of increased intimacy and inevitable intensity.
