Art collective Apparatus 22 in conversation with curator Simina Neagu
Thursday, 18 June 2015, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
For a whole week in June 2015, Romanian art collective Apparatus 22 will transform the home of RCC into an Observatory – an experimental research project in cooperation with a group of students from the Critical Writing in Art & Design Programme at Royal College of Art in London.
As part of their residency, on Thursday, 18 June 2015 at 7:00 pm we are pleased to invite you to a playful and informative talk, "On spheres, magpies, slapping and religion", with Apparatus 22 and curator Simina Neagu. The collective is interested in exploring the intricate relationship between fashion and economy, politics as well as gender studies and social movements. Their multidisciplinary practice spans across media incorporating installations, performances and text.
Following the talk you will have the opportunity to discover Apparatus 22’s “Portraying Simulacra” – a digital questionnaire looking at the disruptive and illusory world of FAKE objects, experiences and emotions.
The talk will be followed by a reception sponsored by Deli Twist.
Based in Bucharest (RO), the collective has participated in exhibitions and festivals worldwide including MUMOK – Viena (AT), Museion – Bolzano (IT), Young Artists Biennial – Bucharest (RO), Akademie Schloss Solitude – Stuttgart (DE), Ujazdowski Castle – Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw (PL), Contemporary Art Museum (MNAC) – Bucharest (RO) and Osage Foundation – Hong Kong. The work of the Apparatus 22 was also exhibited at La Biennale di Venezia 2013, Romanian Official Representation.
