Listen to the man near (2009, Cupola Gallery, Iasi, Romania)

Listen to the man near is the theme of an artistic experiment with the public. In the course of two hours, those present witnessed a unique experiment, in which two large paintings were drawn on their own, the artistic act being unrepeatable. The works were artistically represented by characters intuited by us who listen to us, see and monitor us. The theme of this project is a social-political one, aimed at listening to phones, supervising personal communication, starting from the premise that each of us is a possible offender.Several objects and actions have supported the theme of this project and have suggested how citizens collect laws and ordinances that undermine human rights and freedoms. Through this project, we have tracked the availability and interest of the general public for contemporary art as well as for the social-political themes approached.
