Building networks
[performance in the flat and balcony where the artists lived, Iasi, performer: Bogdan Armanu, camera: Silvia Amancei]
-series of twelve digital black and white photos-



Knowing that for an artist is very important to build around himself a speculative professional network of influential persons in art, I am writing a letter towards the western institutions in this intention. I am folding this letter in order to create an paper airplane from it; just one airplane. Afterwards, I throw this paper airplane from the balcony of the apartment where I live, hoping that it will reach its destination, and therefore build my professional network, opening through this multiple opportunities to emerge as an artist on the western art-scene.

8 out of more flags [university]
[performance at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Iasi]
-series of three digital black and white photos- 




Within a student exhibition at my university, where I was invited to exhibit, I decided to share eight flags made out of handkerchiefs (work which was planned for other context) on which I wrote eight different sentences glorifying the precarious and peripheral artistic context in which we activate, highlighting the freedom and protection, from the capitalist, exploitive western art scene, which our eastern-european paradigm is offering us.

I decided to share from the balcony of the flat where we lived at that time in Iasi, eight flags made out of handkerchiefs on which I wrote eight different sentences glorifying the precarious and peripheral artistic context in which we activate, highlighting the freedom and protection, from the capitalist, exploitive western art scene, which our eastern-european paradigm is offering us.
