Florin Flueras & Alina PopaPRINT THIS PAGE
In his recent works Unexperiences, Unimages, Unvisitors…, Florin Flueras is affecting the relations between artworks and visitors, the implicit automatisms and conventions of perceiving and behaving. His artistic practices are also 'life programming' practices in which different art / forms of life dynamics are explored. With Alina Popa he developed 'Artworlds' environments for their practices – complex compositions of people, concepts, processes, capacities that can take different forms in different contexts, and still maintain their internal chaotic coherence of worlds. Black Hyperbox, Unsorcery, The Clinic, Life Programming are some of these 'artworks as artworlds'. The Candidate is another entity that he co-initiated with Ion Dumitrescu based on their Postspectacle practice. His work was shown at Fap Sao Paulo, DEPO Istanbul, Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw, Jardim Equatorial Sao Paulo, Fabrica de Pensule Cluj, House of Drama Oslo, Rampe Stuttgart, MUMOK Kino Vienna, HAU Berlin, TQW Vienna, Karas Zagreb, DeSingle Antwerp, Atelier 35 Bucharest, CNDB Bucharest, MNAC Bucharest, Salonul de Proiecte Bucharest, Aleppo Brussels, Akademie Solitude Stuttgart, Bozar Brussels…

Alina Popa cared for a place from which it is possible to have artistic consequences, without a total break-up of life and art, of the politics of production and the politics of the product, of oneself as subjectivity and oneself as performance, of the art piece and its framing. She thus found herself at the border between visual arts and performance, the white cube and the black box, writing and theory. She interrupted parties to give lectures, camouflaged life in performances and performances in workshops, chanted geometry as mystical meditation, wrote SF as a documentary gesture, and she intervened, at least once, in a public discussion to talk about jaguars. She was interested in artworks as environments more than in individual works, in mediums with fuzzy borders and spatiotemporal ruses. She founded several 'esthetic entities', The Bureau of Melodramatic Research, Unsorcery, Black Hyperbox, Bezna. With Florin Flueras she recently developed Artworlds - artworks as artworlds. Her work was shown at Fap Sao Paulo, Times Museum Guangzhou, Pratt Manhattan Gallery NY, bak Utrecht, Wing Hong Kong, CCK Buenos Aires, Trafo Budapest, Martin Gropius Bau Berlin, Savvy Contemporary Berlin, MUMOK Vienna, Brut Vienna, DEPO Istanbul, PAF St Erme, CNDB Bucharest, MNAC Bucharest, Salonul de Proiecte Bucharest, Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw, Jardim Equatorial Sao Paulo, Fabrica de Pensule Cluj, Teatru-Spălătorie Chișinău, House of Drama Oslo, Het Bos Antwerp, Theater Rampe Stuttgart, etc.
