"Katarina Balunova starts her research, full of conceptual echoes, from an objective statement: during the last years our cities endured an epochal transformation by growing beyond measure and invaded the spaces of nature. She paints urban plans where the geography of imaginary cities is the record of conflicts not only external. The walls of those houses, skeletons or structures of our identities, that saved us from the decay of time are now frail and vulnerable and longs for a new stability. The maps of the artist are icons of the house as the last fortress of defence, safety, quietness and privacy."
