“I am a storyteller, seeking to explain the world without expecting definitive answers. My aim is to create a reduced image.

The human is the centrepice, what they have been through, felt, thought. Intertwined with family, society, reality and imagination. Landscapes and interior spaces are just the technical medium used to reveal the presence, absence or trace of the people.

I tell stories that I don’t know.”

Desislava Unger, 2020
