Mona VATAMANU & Florin TUDOR, Atoms, photons, kaons, 12’, film, 2015
After their exhibition in 2014 at Argos – Centre for Art And Media (Brussels), D+T Project Gallery is thrilled to present a new body of work by Mona Vatamanu (1968) and Florin Tudor (1974).
Their broad-reaching practice has positioned them among the most compelling and literate interpreters of the contemporary post-communist condition, which extends far beyond their native Romania. Widely shown in European institutions, Vatamanu and Tudor's artistic practice involves bringing history into the present tense, whether in the form of performative re-enactment or symbolic recuperation. A particular focus on political and economic issues in the nowadays world shapes most of their projects.
Titled Le monde et la dette, this new exhibition relates to topics connected with the migration, the complicated relation humans have with the Earth and problematics linked with its fragility. Through a variety of media, including video and installations, the artists investigate subjects such as the debt of world countries, the place of humans in a complex system that constantly struggles for growth and control, the ever-increasing financial pressures that generate more conflicts and displacement of populations, etc.
Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor live and work in Bucharest.
The artists represented Romania at the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007). Other Biennale participations include: Odessa (2015), Shanghai (2014), Limerick (2012), Istanbul (2011), Venice (2011), Bucharest (2010), Ural Yekaterinburg (2010), Gyumry (2010), Berlin (2008), Prague (2007), etc...
