La BF15 is pleased to participate in the France-Romania Season with What ties us together, an exhibition in tribute to house pArty, artistic events initiated and organized in 1987 and 1988 by Decebal and Nadina Scriba in their house in Bucharest.
This exhibition invites two generations to interact in internal / external, private / public relations, and to highlight the critical capacity of artistic gestures with regard to the conventions that delimit them.
A Romanian artist, who arrived in France in 1990, Decebal Scriba became famous in the 1970s and 1980s as a leading figure in contemporary art.
Thanks to a coherent corpus elaborated from disparate mediums - photography, installation, performance, video art - the artist approaches both conceptual and performative art, questions of formal and textual language, spatial representation or the symbolic gestures and forms.
Since 2011, the collaborative artistic practice of the duo Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan examines, in a variety of media, power relations in social, economic and political contexts.
Their recent projects study the phenomenon of man-made landscapes around the world: mountains of rubble, “blooming deserts”, military coral reefs and other similar constructions, often the result of conflict and war. They invented the term debrisphère to designate this still unknown layer of the earth’s crust.
