The Other Drawings is a collaborative project conceived with Marius Lehene. It has been exhibited at the Directions Gallery, Colorado State University , Fort Collins, CO, in 2008.
The project focuses on borders and those crossing them. The Roma people of Eastern Europe became a source for a series of drawings. Their nomadic habits and recent political tensions in Europe brought them, as a topic, to a discussion that involved both our native countries - Romania and Italy. Relationships to the current US immigration issues were evident. In this project my drawing technique follows a situationist predicament: images from newspapers and magazines were first collected, then “detoured” by tracing them onto mylar with inks of various colors. Physically central to the exhibition space, a tent stood as a metaphor for a negative definition of geographical position.
