From industrial patrimony to cultural legacy

From industrial patrimony to cultural legacy

Exhibition in the context of CIGRE Biennial 2018 in Paris

Event labeled “Europe for culture”2018_Electra_CIGRE

The exhibition “From Industrial Heritage to Cultural Legacy” presents the works of Elena Paroucheva, a Bulgarian environmental artist. The artist is invited by CIGRE (International Council of Large Electric Networks) in Paris, but also by the organizers of cultural events in Plovdiv, the European Capital of Culture 2019.
Visual artist, Élèna Paroucheva (Елена Парушева) works in environmental art, performances, sculpture, art in situ, painting, landscaping, etc.
Born in 1959 in Yambol (Bulgaria), she graduated in 1983 from the fine arts of Saints Cyril and Methodius University of Veliko Tarnovo. Creative in a totalitarian country, where artists are forced to conform to the official art, Elena is part of the intelligentsia who will confront the regime and help to overthrow it.
In 1999 she created an artistic movement called “Electric Art” and develops projects to transform electric pylons, wind turbines and relay antennas into works of art.
Noted as an environmental artist, the artist is invited to congresses, conferences and symposiums on the theme of sustainable development and aestheticization of energy networks (power lines, wind turbines, relay antennas …) and their integration into the landscape. (Paris, Santiago, Rotterdam, Oslo, Seoul …)
