NTU CCA Singapore are pleased to present a talk and selected screenings of work by NTU CCA Singapore Artists-in-Residence Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor. Vatamanu & Tudor’s artistic practice spans diverse media including film, photography, painting, performance, and site-specific projects. Through their works, they confront the traumatic legacy of Communism in their native Romania and Eastern Europe, while wrestling with the ongoing challenge of how to process history. As part of their residency at NTU CCA Singapore so far they have taken a look at the surrounding environment of both the natural jungle-like environment and various constructions happening in Gillman Barracks to explore various social dynamics. Their work has been included in numerous international exhibitions including (selection): Untitled (12th Istanbul Biennial), Istanbul, 2012; Blind Spots, Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, Vienna, 2009; 5th Berlin Biennial, 52nd Venice Biennial, Romanian Pavilion, Venice, 2007. They have had solo exhibition at Extra City, Antwerp and the Graphisches Kabinett, Secession, Vienna, among others. Vatamanu and Tudor live and work in Bucharest.
After their talk, a conversation between the artists will be led by NTU CCA Singapore Curator, Exhibitions Anca Rujoiu.
