Young Ambassador is in the lagoon city for the glass art residency

Martina Lorenzon

Almost for fun, a few weeks ago I sent my candidacy as Ambassador with the aim to document Constantine Zlatev's experience at Abate Zanetti School of Glass and when I was contacted I was frightened: I believed that the comparison with an artist and his ideas may be complicated for a novice photographer like me. Ten minutes spent with the artist and his beautiful wife Hana were enough to change my mind.

Ten minutes spent with the artist and his beautiful wife Hana were enough to change my mind.
I realized that artists' personality and life are directly reflected on his creations and Constantine is able to create true and intense artworks, that should let us meditate and not just entertain. In fact, as himself told me: “the art mustn't make people play, but meditate”.
“MorAmmo” is the title of the work that the Bulgarian artist created during the days spent at Abate Zanetti School, where he live an art residency thanks to his participation to the Arte Laguna Prize.
The artwork represents the transposition of the meaning of brutal objects like arms and bombs.
After making a rifle play “Chifte Kavali”, making the viewer reflec inevitably, Constantine created bombs made of coloured Murano glass: in this way the public is forced to admire something that is usually considered as terrible. It seems that the artist would like to communicate us that the only bombs that could save us are innocuous and coloured bombs and not those ones we learn everyday about.
The word “MorAmmo” reminds of Murano but for the autor it also means “More Ammunitions” and “More Amore” (more love).
As someone has already said, only the beauty can save the world and this artwork simply reminds it.
