On the 11th of April 2014 at 19.30 we are welcoming you to join us for the presentation of a work in progress project, a presentation that aims to set the grounds for different expectations.

For the past few days, Iași artist in residency and writer Mikkel Rosengaard intensively worked on their collaboration now focusing on the upcoming project by Cristina David, titled "Another kind of application". Iași and its specific dynamics will serve as both inspiration and delivery base for their ideas developed over almost two months.

The project will conclude later this year in a rather special format, thus giving us time to imagine both production and product scenarios. Upon the end of this project, we will be once again joining Cristina when she will present us the results of her artistic process of production.

She inaugurated the newest chapter of Iaşi regarding the residency program venture in our city. This invitation was sent after the encounter with her application for the AiR program of and the ERSTE Foundation at MuseumsQuartier - 2014, a project that Iaşi is very keen to produce in Iaşi. Being interested a priori in the "democracy" of the "openness of calls" in the arts domain, Iaşi is thus trying to question this issue both as its own practice, as well as the others' practice in the art world.

Untill the 30th of May students from Iași will have the opportunity to have professional meetings with Cristina DAVID & Mikkel ROSENGAARD in the frame of Guest Teacher programe. More info here.

Cristina DAVID started her artistic training at the Art Academy in Bucharest and completed her MDA at the Art Academy in Bergen, Norway. She lives in Bucharest where she works as a visual artist.
In her career she had at the beginning a short period of self-introspection but she felt quite uncomfortable with it so she is done with that. Cristina now likes to combine scientific facts with art and she is enthusiastic of what she is discovering. Her works are often humorous.

Mikkel ROSENGAARD was born in Elsinore (Denmark) in 1987, and is a grants and fiction writer. He has written grants for the City of Copenhagen, the PEN World Voice Festival of International Literature, and the art group Wooloo. His first book, the young adult novel Videre, was published in 2010.

ERSTE Foundation is the main partner of
