întinse. destinse - solo show, Cabinet44, Bucharest, 2022
This series of works is developed on the idea of conceptual boundaries, using the relationship between geometry and space. Domestic and urban environments are apparently very different domains, separated by spatial boundaries that seem to draw a clear line of demarcation between them, the lines and network of grids that separate the interior space from the exterior, the domestic space from the public space. The grid evokes, among other things, hostility to narrative, to discourse. In a spatial sense, the grid removes the real and replaces it with the expanse of a single surface: flattened, geometrized, ordered. I emphasize the contrast between sharp geometric edges and the soft fabric of textile or elastic bands, through a series of 'ordering exercises', by developing practices that use geometry as a common point, both formally and conceptually. I use lines, intersections of lines and points as tools for self-reflection, analysis of the inner, subjective world, and their expression in outer space.
