Artist Adriana Chiruta in residency in Bucharest

Adriana Chiruta lives and works in her favourite life-art project called Carambach, an ”invented” country for independent artists, scientists and human and nature rights` activists. She studied philosophy and performing arts (theatre directing), being a hybrid artist, mixing practices inspired by theatre laboratories and postmodern dance, with post-conceptual art and philosophy (mainly logic and cognitive sciences, philosophy of urbanism and political philosophy).

The title of the research Adriana Chiruta develops during her residency in Bucharest is “How we perform survival. The Carambach lesson”.

The residency is part of Regenerative-Reliable-Resourceful, the mapping of resilient practices in the Romanian countryside, in the field of food production and distribution, construction materials and cultural initiatives, that develops in the frame of C4R and of the Experimental Station for Research.

The C4R project aims to foster resilient and inclusive European societies by developing participatory cultural practices of resilience and ensuring social transversality. C4R offers conditions for the production and dissemination of a diversity of cultures of resilience to counterbalance the over-hype of catastrophist productions and to influence and transform European collective imaginaries.

The project is supported by the EC's Creative Europe - Culture programme (2020-22) and is carried out by a collective of 4 partners: Atelier d'Architecture Autogérée (FR), Casco Art Institute (NL), (RO) and Nethood (CH).
