    It shakes everywhere | 2012

In “It shakes everywhere”, Ventzislavova looks at the shock of recurring earthquakes, a premonition of catastrophe to come. The instability of nature is used as a metaphor for the volatile real estate and economic situation. Stability is taken as a precarious state that must be maintained. The people in the photographs stand in their pajamas at night, in front of their houses, which are as similar as the people themselves. The tremors cause a brief reversal of the situation: the public space of the street becomes a safe and private place.
