group show | Show-OFF 4: The temporary un/commonplace – MATCA artspace
While I have been working continuously to develop Faulty Technology further, she kept joyfully travelling (this time a little closer to home, in Cluj-Napoca), as part of MATCA artspace’s funky group show Show-OFF #4 – The temporary un/commonplace,, while taking a more objectified form that her usual mobile self.
Faulty technology questions the potential of visual mutation based on technological glitches and accidents, with a very particular attention to objectification and materialization of what we are used to witness as digital space or experience. In this particular case, the image seriality which is at the core of the project, manifested in a replay on the praxinoscope, requiring the public to activate it in order to mechanically animate the images.
Show OFF #4:
For this summer we`re switching OFF our regular shows for the fourth time and we`re introducing you to our ++hot season++ group show – where we invited the selected artists to reflect or propose us some works under a specific theme, called ”the temporary un/commonplace” – as this year, just like the previous one, the show will take place in two locations. we selected works by 27 artists we collaborated with in the past exhibitions, or artists we would like to work with in the future, each of them responding to the proposed theme, where the past-present-future of places is reflected, the state of the artist or art, or various characteristics of transitions and common backgrounds, territories, intersections, distances, and knowledge (…).
MATCA artspace is an artist-run space managed by three local artists (Alexandru Muraru, Matei Toșa and Alexandra Mocan) that emerged in Cluj-Napoca at the beginning of 2017 and has been, since then been developing a collaborative and fresh approach to exhibiting and disseminating contemporary art.
You can have a quick digital glance at the exhibition here.
