Apparatus 22 (RO/BE)

Over Apparatus 22

Apparatus 22 is een transdisciplinair kunstcollectief dat in januari 2011 is opgericht door de huidige leden Erika Olea, Maria Farcas en Dragos Olea, samen met Ioana Nemes (1979 - 2011) in Boekarest, Roemenië. Sinds 2015 werken ze vanuit Boekarest en Brussel.

Ze zien zichzelf als een collectief van dromers, onderzoekers, poëtische activisten en (gebrekkige) futurologen die geïnteresseerd zijn in het verkennen van de complexe relaties tussen economie, politiek, genderstudies, sociale bewegingen, religie en mode om de hedendaagse samenleving te begrijpen. Een belangrijk onderwerp van onderzoek en reflectie in de praktijk van Apparatus 22 is het SUPRAINFINIT universum. Dit universum is een poging om een wereld te creëren, om hoop kritisch in te kunnen zetten bij het navigeren door heden en toekomst.

In hun zeer uiteenlopende werken - installaties, performances en vormen met tekst als uitgangspunt - vermengen ze realiteit met fictie en het vertellen van verhalen, vanuit een kritische benadering die stoelt op kennis en ervaring uit design, sociologie, literatuur en economie.

Het werk van Apparatus 22 werd gepresenteerd in tentoonstellingen in La Biennale di Venezia 2013, MUMOK, Wenen (AT), BOZAR - Centre for Fine Arts, Brussel (BE), Museion, Bolzano (IT), Kunsthalle Wien (AT), Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles (BE), Brukenthal Museum Contemporary Art Gallery, Sibiu (RO), Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart (DE), MNAC - museum voor hedendaagse kunst, Boekarest (RO), KunstMuseum Linz (AT), La Triennale di Milano (IT), Loft - Servais Family Collection, Brussel (BE), TRAFO Gallery, Boedapest (HU), Futura, Praag (CZ), Ujazdowski Castle - centrum voor hedendaagse kunst, Warschau (PL), Salonul de Proiecte, Boekarest (RO), Onomatopee Eindhoven (NL), TIME MACHINE BIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORY ART, D-0 ARK UNDERGROUND, Konji (BIH), Osage Foundation (Hong Kong), Progetto Diogene, Turijn (IT), Closer Art Centre, Kiev (UA), CIAP, Hasselt (BE), Barriera, Turijn (IT), Suprainfinit Gallery, Boekarest (RO), GALLLERIAPIÙ, Bologna (IT);
