About

Pol Parrhesia [Polina Stoynova Pol – BG 1978] works within the field of visual and action art, aiming to create an experience of the invisible. She investigates the subtle braking point in which perception has an opportunity to change. Formed in fine arts, graphic design and audiovisual, her work takes shape in the creation of objects, spaces and contexts for intimacy, curatorship and cinematography.

Since 2016 she collaborates in the sociocultural and educational project of the neighborhood association ‘Pedro Esquivel’ in Santa Lucía (Cádiz) and begins her study of natural beekeeping in the Apijanda Learning Community. Together with Karmit Even-Zur and Jorge Gallardo she co-creates and develops Bee Time Artist Residencies.
