The “Film – curatorial project” exhibition is introduced to the public by the curator Matei Bejenaru and the participating artists - Irina Botea, Jon Dean, Ciprian Ciuclea, Diana Dulgheru, Lavinia German, Catalin Soreanu, Sorin Vreme – on October 13, while the “87 clouds will rain for you” sound installation, signed by Iosif Kiraly, promises to be a true sensory experience for those who will step into the WASP space.
On October 17, Wanda Mihuleac and Marilena Preda Sanc invite the audience to a dialogue conference at the National Museum of Romanian Literature on the existence of alternative art and events held in unconventional spaces in Romania before ’89, compared to France between 1989 and 2018.
The evening of October 19 is dedicated to the performance “The Dream is the Dreamer” in the performance of Portuguese artist Catarina Miranda, at WASP Working Art Space and Production, as well as to dance films produced last year by WASP Studios and 4Culture Association within GROWASP 2017 cultural program, in partnership with the Department of Photography, Video and Image Processing of “George Enescu” National University of Arts in Iasi.
The 13th edition also includes at WASP Working Art Space and Production the projection of “XXXXXXX” video, created by Ivana Müller within the “Love Letters to a (Post-)Europe” project and presented in 2015 in Athens in the context of a rapidly changing Europe and as an expression of solidarity with Greece at that time.
eXplore festival #13 closes on October 20, 2018, with the play “We are still watching”, signed by Ivana Müller. Based on an increased degree of interactivity, the author launches to the participants the challenge to become the protagonists of the work themselves and to experience theatrical art in a much more personal manner through direct engagement. Known to the Romanian public due to her presence at the eXplore festival in Bucharest with the show “While We Were Holding It Together”, Ivana Müller is one of the most powerful voices on the European stage of contemporary dance and performance.
