Installation view of The Last Fortress at City Hall Gallery, Lom, Bulgaria.
The displayed work at the exhibition differs from the final version. The resources in the poor town of Lom were minimal, and it was impossible to find any place to print the text onto the porcelain plate.
However, instead of viewing this as a setback, the artist embraced this uncontrollable aspect of the situation as an opportunity to incorporate the economic disadvantages of the town into the artwork. Thus, the absence of the printed text on the porcelain plate became a meaningful part of the piece, serving as a tangible representation of the town's economic struggles. This unintentional outcome became a significant and integral element of the final artwork exhibited at the show.
