‘Steps’ by Freddie Darke - in participation with 'Ritual and Revolution' for The Old School Art Residency 2018, Gorna Lipnitsa, Bulgaria

“I collected very loose and informal interviews with locals in the village, particularly interested in daily habits - no matter how small or seemingly irrelevant. I talked to people of all ages.

I wove these characters and narratives into a large collage/installation that became, through the process and on its completion, a humble attempt to celebrate the ‘magic in the mundane’ - the potential meaningfulness of the repeated act. With a fairly simple allusion to the notion of the butterfly effect, I hoped to illustrate a form of value for our everyday rituals.” - FD
