More than visual or conceptual, Florin Flueras sees his recent practice as affect art. In Love, Unexperiences, Unimages, Unhere, he explores body situations and capacities that act meta, affecting what underlies the conceptual and perceptual, what is possible to think, see and feel in different contexts. In Artwork he transforms works into practices, composing a "method" in the format of somatic / spiritual methods. In Art Opening he aims for temporary zones of possibility, for art openings at the levels of formats, contents and aesthetics. With Alina Popa he created alternative art environments, artworks as Artworlds (Unsorcery, Clinica, Black Hyperbox). With Ion Dumitrescu he initiated Candidate an entity based on their Postspectacle practice of applying performance tools to other zones of reality. In some venues his works appear uninvited – Unofficial Unworks. He's often transferring performative approaches to his writing and back. He's interested in situations where implicit norms, expectations, sensibilities are affected and opened to new possibilities. His practice expands into spheres of politics, philosophy, spirituality, health care, media, education, literature – producing performative meetings between art and its outside, affecting conventions and certainties in both areas.
Mihai Barabancea is an unconventional visual artist from Bucharest who uses the photographic environment, but also video art. The topics he addresses are contemporary society and the magical hyper-realism or influence that media and social constructions have on society. His approach is a combination of street photography, documentary but also staged photography. He is the author of 3 cult photobooks: Sequence Rewriting, The Kiss (album accessible also for the visually impaired), Falling on Blades - the latest book being published by Patrick Frey of Switzerland. Also, his first album won the Typographic Experiment Award at the "Most Beautiful Books in Romania" contest.
He wrote, co-directed and directed the artistic direction for the film "Blades Digital". His latest show is Metatronix 3000 - "on eastern futuristic nostalgia" @ 2/3 Bucharest Gallery. In his vast experience he has participated in numerous exhibitions, residencies but also unconventional events and has witnessed atypical situations, incredible at the limit of absurd reality. That is why he considers it necessary to share his knowledge with people who are open and passionate about art, absurd experiences but also photography.
Mihai Enescu - Mihnea's father, in love with life and Romania, volunteer for noble causes, activist for the promotion of correct and documented information about forests, always confuses work with passion.
Trainer, project manager, forestry engineer, doctor of forestry, assistant lecturer and last but not least, the one who asks you when you last smiled :)
