Reconstruction With Art

with Alex Halka for Deutsches Kulturzentrum Temeswar , photos by Daliana Iacobescu, Radu Dumitrescu

From the 12th till the 15th of February at the Art Museum of Timisoara, Romania, the Baroque room was brought to life through projections and sound together with the Unirii Square. The square is in reconstruction since spring 2014. The construction site should end in summer or autumn 2015, but till then, the square is "dead". Reconstruction with Art was an artistic attempt to change the state of the square for five days.

The idea was developed by actress and model Olga Török and realised together with sound designer and composer Alex Halka with whom I had worked at last year's Clujotronic festival in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The stunning photographies used for the installation were shot by Andreea Chiru.
