Ways of using absence
Invited independent art space: Vector Association
Program: Tuesday – Friday 15.00 – 19.00, Saturday and Sunday 11.00 – 14.00
Vector>’s projects and programmes of exhibition making, educational implications, research explorations and publishing actions are configured from a perspective of a (post)critical understanding of the power relationships between the engagement of artistic practices and the (neo)conservation of socio-political contexts. Vector> defines its projects as (post)critical, experimental, participative, investigative, situational, contextual, educational, intending to produce practices that would generate objects, facts, events, ideas, transformations, networks.
For Art Encounters Biennial, Vector> proposes a series of artworks—conceived by Dan Acostioaei, Dragoș Alexandrescu, Silvia Amancei & Bogdan Armanu, Matei Bejenaru, Cătălin Gheorghe and Cristian Nae—that are taking into consideration certain “ways of using absence” mediated by interventions which signalize the “production of art elsewhere“ from the perspective of a thinking beyond “educational turn”. In the exhibition space you can find traces of production and performances: a book, a video, an electronic display panel, a handwritten text, more.
