Exhibition: 22 July – 12 August (Wednesday – Saturday, 12-5pm)
Exploring the recuperation of cultural memory, Ioana Marinescu’s project works with the destruction of ancient Pompeii caused by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, alongside events in 1980s Bucharest, when a historic residential quarter of the city was razed to make way for Ceaușescu’s Palace of the Parliament or ‘People’s Palace’. Working with Bucharest-based choreographers Smaranda Găbudeanu and Iulia Mărăcine and using archival image, video, soundscape, testimony and live performance, Marinescu traces both events and finds parallels in the sudden displacement of both populations.
