Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

The work debates Romania’s position within the EU and people’s perception of the waves of mass migration of recent years. After the integration within the European Union, huge numbers of Romanian immigrants took over the Western countries and managed to give birth to a silent animosity.

The way Romania is perceived is quite different than how it used to be 8 years ago (unfortunately). Many Europeans didn’t know where to place Romania on the map before. Now they can. But they know little about the country and pretty much nsidering that the EU is a place of harmony, peace and understanding, we are all supposed to be equal within this union.

In February 2014, during Rotterdam Art Week, I asked the people of the Netherlands, my brothers: “Why do you love Romania?”

The work was made out of a table, a chair, some pencils, some pieces of paper with that question and a mailbox with my name written on it.

Concept author(s) contribution

I am the one who made the work. My art is mainly social, and it needs to be seen and felt by others in order to breath. What I do does not rest secluded from the world, it is not meant to be put aside just for the pleasure of one character, being the world itself, made to aid in changing some perceptions and healing wrongs, bringing to the attention of others things that pass right in their vicinity. I focus on the personal and group histories, stories and poems, while trying to understand different development processes (mainly socio-anthropological) and present them to those willing to hear and see.
