Text by Nadya Genova Opus Probect 93 exhibition
"Opus Probect 93" features six members of the Edge Group. As with all previous projects, again the group works out every detail of the organization, implementation and the financial provision of the project. The Edges find like-minded people and support in state-owned enterprises that live their last moments before privatization. They receive for free dozens of wooden frames that are used as the basis for furniture doors, four beds from a furniture exhibition, construction scaffolding, hundreds of kilograms of apples and a free access to the hall of the Union of Plovdiv Artists.

The beginning is simply a conversation in which a strong match of attitudes, feelings and intentions is established. Their exchange is giving and taking of cues, narratives, ready-made solutions and the pleasure of this shared game is carried over into the materialization of the ideas. “Opus Probect 93” is a symphony of the appropriation of an object – turning it into a "Probect". Against the background of numerous semantic interpretations of the apple as a symbol, in this case the authors do not fix a specific one. The apple is present in different forms – plaster casts, real fruits dipped in paint, photocopies of apples placed directly on the glass top of a copier, drawings on paper. The goal is to test materiality in different variants. Thus the Object becomes the Probect of the Edge Group.
