Anca Munteanu Rîmnic - Hodoronc Tronc

1 June (Monday) / 18:00 hours
Wyspa Institute of Art, the premises of the former Gdańsk Shipyard

Admission free

Anca Munteanu Rîmnic works in Berlin. Author of sculptures, objects, installations and videos. Her artistic strategy is to eliminate the original function of selected objects, endow them with new meanings, and place them in a new aesthetic and emotional context.

Uta Grosenick wrote about her practice:
Anca Munteanu Rîmnic comes across the objects and people that will appear in her work in the supermarket, at the park, or in the street; by ever so slightly displacing these chance encounters of everyday life, she then translates them into absurd and yet visually appealing images and artefacts.

Her works reveal a tragicomic potential, for example Wild Worses (2013), which delivers a critique of the idea of social productivity and effectiveness, and questions the false modernisation of today’s Romania. The object is an outsized horse’s harness, hand-made by Romanian artisans, its dimensions making it suitable for a g luxury car rather than a horse.
