Upon the invitation of Swimming Pool Gallery, ten artists from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam went to Sofia and did a show in the nick of time. In one night at Wolfart, they remake their work in the light of this new occasion.

It’s not like good things only happen for a reason. Some simply need the occasion. Honour the accidents that put gifts in your hands. They’re breakable, beware! Eggs in a pool. Assets in a nest. Sounds in your head you might not forget. Taking a trip can do this to you. Few days in a new city are hardly enough to know it. But, pressed for time, you may stumble accross things and bump into people, or hear the best tunes in town in the last place open late. In this spirit pieces get made. They grow when, after some rest, you take them out again for a night.
