On the 21st of June, Marina Albu visited Cluj for the first time to try and raise some questions and to generate a space for debate, through a performance and the connected artistic endeavours.
“For one and a half hour we will try and pinpoint elements that construct our bodies, question their symbolism and roles, turn them on all sides and we will invent new ways to perceive and use them. Also, the unique elements that construct our image will be put on a tray to be chosen one by one, will be picked at or chopped into tiny pieces. We will give out the pieces and than put them back together, test the new method and we will look into the mirror. Anatomy is history and spatial view is physics. We will measure ourselves with our eyes and we will recognize ourselves in others. We will stand our ground, us!” (Marina Albu)
Marina Albu is one of the most interesting artist at the moment. She participated in exhibitions at the Bucharest Biennale 5; Slade Research Centre; The Big Screen Project Sixth Avenue, New York; WHITE BOX Gallery, New York; TR Warsawa, Warsaw; Muzej Vojvodine, Novi Sad; Muzej 25. Maj, Belgrade; Platforma, Bucharest; Fisk Gallery, Bergen; The Victorian Vaults, London; Pavilion, Bucharest; Electroputere, Craiova; Salonul de Proiecte, Bucharest and many others. She works with written text, spoken word, spatial interventions, photography, installations and video. She’s preoccupied with day-to-day life, extra-ordinary events, people and their shaping by external and internal factors, thoughts and occurrences. Some consider her an activist artist, although she would never say something like that about herself. Born in 1984 in Constanța, she lives and works in Bucharest.
