Vera Hadzhiyska

With the Name of a Flower

Vera Hadzhiyska is a Bulgarian multi-disciplinary artist based in England. She works with photography, audio and video installations. Vera’s work explores past and present historic and political events in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Her latest series "With the Name of a Flower", investigates the forced name changes of the Bulgarian Muslim population in Bulgaria. Vera is interested in how these historical events have affected the cultural, religious and national identity of these people and their descendants. How memories have been preserved or purposefully omitted from family narratives, resulting in a shift of identity and sense of belonging of the younger generations. The project consists of a self-portrait series, video pieces, a sound installation and archival documents.
