The exhibition presents works by nine selected artists into a conversation in physical space. The show explores the tacit nuances that highlight a broad variety of subjective languages, reflecting the origin and history of each individual participant.

In Dragos Badita’s portraits the lens is turned the other way, capturing the mental state emanating from his subjects. Badita paints his close friends and family in his works, observing and revealing intimate reflections of the human psyche and emotions.

The 90s Xanax advert is reinterpreted in Megan Dominescu’s rugs as a truism of our contemporary lives. Even in her latest tapestry of the Mediterranean endangered wildlife,”thank you thank you thank you”, she highlights the ever-present predicaments of a society engulfed in the need to consume and forget.

Inspired by the story-telling history of tapestries and weavings across cultures, Aurora Király builds a journal of mental images and fragments, the mise en scène of the eventful inner-lives spent in overlooked domestic spaces. In her works, a contour of a lamp induces the intimacy of focused lighting and mysterious secondary shadows, or a cat on a sofa underlines the homely closed quarters from which a figure pensively looks out on the window.

Oana Cosug constructs her narrative through the interplay between language and drawing in a continuous living journal of essays in watercolour. Her works explore ways in which the female body is not objectified or vulnerable, but rather hidden and transformed.

Larisa Crunteanu's artwork, ”Floating Anchor” reclaims an intermediate space, where there is no other work and no other people, a space where the body disappears, allowing for the observation of all that moves afloat.
