Within the installation ‘COME AND LOOK. I(t) kicked the bucket. I(t)’M lying there, totally snuffed!’, the public was invited to take one zăerc (What is a zăerc?) from the installation, in order to later photograph it its the new space (public space, inside the apartment, uncertain space, selfie with the zăerc, etc.).

Below are the photos received from the public and exposed as part of the installation and within the exhibition “What About Gregor Samsa” @ Galeria Anca Poterașu, Bucharest. MANY THANKS to all the participants !

DEVIS GREBU in the opening of AFTER ZĂERCS exhibition

Master Devis Grebu honoured me greatly by opening my exhibition AFTER ZĂERCS @Signum Gallery in Bucharest:

EN: … she is a sort of locomotive, a locomotive that doesn’t crush the truck or the barriers when they meet, but who simply — I would say– plants flowers behind. She is multiple, has no limits, has this curiosity of the genius to insert, to intervene in all areas, in all matters … and succeeds, and does them very well, in my opinion even better: out of the ordinary. I am so happy for her evolution. It was 11 years ago that we met for the first time. (…) This exhibition is a more special exhibition, since it also has its humor, having been started out of a language problem …… ever since her childhood.

She uses many different materials here, which she either combines or suggests. In the paintings that she does with oil or acrylic on canvas she still suggests combinations of diverse materials. I do not think that one can define her, figurative, surrealist, abstract? I look at her paintings and they could be abstract, but also surrealist or figurative. Because you discover – if you want — in each of the paintings elements that are specific to these categories. I think this is actually a quality. Better yet, not to be integrated under a specific dome. Neither I, in what I do, I don’t think that I could fall under a certain (…) and maybe I an subjective because I see in her the same ambitions, the same desires.

IN-TRIGÂ : AT HOME EVERYWHERE

EN:

Through the In-Trigâ: AT HOME EVERYWHERE video-performance (see The Small In-Trigâ Dictionary) I try to redefine my territory and my identity, assuming a status on the border between public and private, in the context of ongoing social political influences over my personal life. The promenade in which car I carry my zăercs is a propagation of the self in constant movement: between aesthetic and social, between the organic and the artificial, between life and death, between nature and culture, between art and everyday life. The First In-trigâ presents through the form of a funeral march the simplest, most common and recurrent activity in my life: the daily walk with my dog, in the fields near the village where I have my studio.
