LIVE DEBUT 12/10/12 @ 8pm @ Anexa Mnac
“Paradisiac bestiary” is exploring various realms of the biblical sin, focusing on totemic elements and also on the christian symbol of the apple as the main epic pretext for the escape from the garden of Eden. Reinterpreting the fall from paradise using pagan ritualistic masks, the four characters challenge their identities as they’re planning to be their own gods, apart from what christianity teaches us. In the rise/dawn of the “apocalypse” we certainly must preserve our humour and reinvent ourselves each time we encounter prophets and their prophecies. Each one of us is his own God: start building churches! The bestiary is within you!

Cabluri/ Cables e dedicata, fetisist, cablurilor de pe stalpurile tarii, cu accent pe cele din Bucuresti si Constanta, documentate intensiv atat video cat si foto. cablurile ii inspira materialitatea abstracta a spatiului virtual si a comunicarii dintre noi care se vede, la suprafata, ca o colectie de mate rasucite baroc in jurul stalpilor care le (sus)tin. muzica porneste de la traducerea audio a fluxurilor video si a glitch-urilor suprapuse in montaj, care pot fi interpretate ca imperfectiuni ale sistemului binar prin care ajungem, in virtual, unii la altii.
