The In-Trigâ box was shown in relation with an exhibition of my litograph engravings and thus had the purpose of revealing my creative and making processes. These digital prints were inserted in a wooden table-box and could be taken and viewed by the visitors. 

UN-FINISHED exhibition @Colony Art Gallery, 2014

‘COME AND LOOK. I(t) kicked the bucket. I(t)’M lying there, totally snuffed!’ – part 2

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 !

BUCHAREST ROADBLOCK

The project“Bucharest, Roadblock” was realised in 2010-2011 during my studies at l’ecole d’art de Grenoble, within the workshop entitled «Cosmetique et politique» (coordinators: Abdelkader Damani, Slimane Rais).
