Solakow works in various media and art genres and many of his works ending in a spatial installation. A theme that runs through his entire oeuvre is the artist's position and work within society and the resulting - sometimes political - questions that Solakow comments on in a humorous and sometimes absurd way. A typical technique here are small handwritten notes or drawings that Solakow attaches to the walls of exhibition spaces or builds up as a series of pictures, for example in his contributions to Documenta fair 12 or the 52nd Venice Biennale. In their spatial arrangement, these fragments form a kind of archive that - comparable to the works of Ilja Kabakow - transfers the artist's experiences from a personal to a political level. One example is the work Top Secret (1989-1990), in which Solakow documents his life and in particular his collaboration with the Bulgarian secret service on index cards.
Signed, dated and numbered. With pencil on black paper, is not well to be seen on the photos.
