ALINA POPA &
FLORIN FLUERAS:
UNSORCERY

Unsorcery composes and explores ways of sorcery that can eventually surpass or undo some of the contemporary realities and subjectivities. It is an Artworld involved in a productive alienation from concepts through experience and from experience through thought. Unsorcery is an environment in which Alina Popa and Florin Flueras were working together, each following their own path, doing their own practices, texts and performances around the concepts: Life Programing, Artworlds, Black Hyperbox, Second Body, Dead Thinking, End Dream.

Alina Popa: "Art after Cantemir", "The Artworld and The Artworld", "X Horizon: The Black Box and The Amazonian Forest", "The Second Body and The Multiple Outside", "Dead Thinking", "Imitation of Dream"

Florin Flueras: "Life Programming", "Esthetic Entities", "Black Box", "Second Body", "Dead Thinking", "Dreaming the End of Dreaming"

KATJA LEE ELIAD:
MAP MAKER LIKE LYRICAL

Contributions: essays by Valentina Iancu, Anca Verona Mihuleţ and an interview with the artist by Nicolas de Ribou.

Katja Lee Eliad’s Map Maker Like Lyrical offers a retrospective view on the self-taught artist’s work over the past two decades. Her personal trajectory has been shaped by the experience of migration, queer identity, rich/complex family history, which also reflect in her artworks that arch across mediums, from drawing and painting to poetry, video and sound. Having to adapt to constantly shifting conditions, by often changing studios between France, Romania and the US, her artworks are diverse in terms of formal qualities and means of expression. The extensively illustrated book is accompanied by two essays by Valentina Iancu and Anca Verona Mihuleț and a conversation with the artist by Nicolas de Ribou, aiming to map the coordinates of a tortuous journey.

Texts by: Inti Guerrero, Mihnea Mircan, Magda Radu

Vlad Nancă Souvenir is the first monographic publication dedicated to one of the foremost artists of his generation and a key figure in the development of Bucharest’s artistic community in the early 2000s. The book offers an extended overview of his multifaceted practice, focusing on works made from 2003 to 2017, opting to highlight the affinities between them rather than their chronological unfolding. Alongside ample illustrations of the documented works, the book includes essays by Inti Guerrero, Mihnea Mircan and Magda Radu, which contextualize Vlad Nancă’s activity from different perspectives.

BLACK HYPERBOX

Edited by Alina Popa and Florin Flueraș

Contributions by: Florin Flueraș, Alina Popa, Ioana Gheorghiu, Ștefan Tiron, Gabriel Catren, Irina Gheorghe, Garett Strickland, Sina Seifee, Bogdan Drăgănescu, Cătălina Gubandru, Eleni Ikoniadou, Cristina Bogdan, Cosima Opartan, Nicola Masciandaro, Ben Woodard, Blake Victor, Adriana Gheorghe, Cătălina Gubandru, Gregory Chatonsky, Dorothée Legrand & Georges Heidmann, Matt Hare, Larisa Crunţeanu, Dylan Trigg, Ion Dumitrescu

Black Hyperbox was initiated in 2015 by Alina Popa and Florin Flueraş as a frame for performance and text based on the alienation between practice and conceptualization. Meanwhile, individual artworks, mostly performances, emerged from its process. They are circulating sometimes independently, sometimes together. Now Black Hyperbox is also a book, the outcome of the discursive section of the project. Its contributing authors were immersed in Black Hyperbox or gravitating around it, at least conceptually. In the book, Black Hyperbox comes forth as a place that holds incompatible conceptual zones and spatiotemporalities together: Old World and New World, theater and jungle, jaguars and AI, prehistory and futurism, the earthly home and the alien space, Mecca and the North Pole, spaceships lost in cosmos and the politics of Isis, Malevich’s black square and the moon travel, thought and hallucination.
