THE IN-TRIGÂ BOX installation : print on A4 (both sides), wood
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
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 !

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.
