”In the past few years I have been trying to understand the city I live in with the help of different artistic media. I use analog film to document the transformations of the facades of the blocks of flats, but also the bus stations and other city fragments that can be introduced within a photographic series, or urban objects that are already series themselves, which one can just find in public space. The aesthetics of these images could be called documentary realism, which is a mixture of typological study, combined with an attempt to underline the visual seduction that the objects emanate.
At the same time, I am following with interest what happens in the communal spaces of the blocks of flats, but also the daily objects and civic activity of the inhabitants of the buildings, that I transform, or I interpret, producing series of objects and symbolic gestures.
Together with Ana-Maria Ciceala I explore public and deserted spaces, both from the point of view of their spatial directions, their textures and their mental states, but also as visual constructions that can be communicated through movement and filmed actions.
Last but not least, I collect found things from the street, as well as flowers that fall off the balconies, and then place them in new configurations that underline my vision of Bucharest as a place one can come to understand in time, and also come to appreciate its vitality.” (Text by Mircea Nicolae)
