EXPANDED SPACE 2016 / THE GREY AREA
12 October – 15 November 2016, Bucharest
Opening - Wednesday, 12 October 2016, 19:00
Films by Florin Bobu, Simion Cernica, Grupul H.arta, Hans van Houwelingen, Vasile Leac
Interventions in the public space by Dan Acostioaei, Mihai Balko, Radu Boeru, Elana Katz, Monotremu, Miklos Onucsan.
The sixth edition of the Expanded Space project aims to explore the grey area theme. Through this theme we meant to question the methods of separating the public space from the private one, both in its physical dimension and the one pertaining to the public sphere; to explore the limits of gestures, actions and discourses in the public space; to inquire the process of establishing and legitimizing the frames of public interventions, as well as the extent to which these allow the participation of different groups and individuals. The theme intends to provoke a series of distinct responses to the specificity of Romanian public space, which is currently under a moment of tension and formation.
This year’s project proposes two directions of investigation, structured as direct interventions in the public space and video works. In the framework of the Expanded Space 2016, alongside a series of temporary interventions in Bucharest public space produced or performed by artists Dan Acostioaei, Mihai Balko, Radu Boeru, Elana Katz, Monotremu, Miklos Onucsan, five video works commissioned to artists Florin Bobu, Simion Cernica, Grupul H.arta, Hans van Houwelingen, Vasile Leac will be presented. Each of these approaches is drawn from the proposed topic, yet put forward and develop different perspectives regarding the reality of Romanian public space.
