Sculptural, sound, and video installations in the “Dimitrie Brandza” Botanical Garden

The exhibition “Gems! for the Garden”, curated and organized by Living Content, carves its trajectory through a series of sculptural, sound, and video installations, infiltrated indoors and outdoors, in green spaces and aquatic areas in the “Dimitrie Brandza” Botanical Garden, Bucharest.

The route is punctuated by sound works made by Bogdana Dima (RO) and Ioanida Costache (RO), site-specific installations signed by Adrian Ganea (RO), Analisa Teachworth (USA), Julie de Kezel (BE), Lea Rasovszky (RO) and Rasmus Myrup (DNK), as well as sculptures and video installations made by artists Chlorys (RO) and Nona Inescu (RO).

The group of artists from different countries were invited to imagine a dialogue between their practices and the environment.

Kris Lemsalu (EE), the artist who represented Estonia at the Venice Biennale in 2019, was present at the opening of the exhibition together with the girl-pop duo NEW YORK, with a performance intervention specially designed for Living Content.

“Gems! for the Garden is an exhibition in which the urban environment, artistic interventions, and the natural environment merge, practicing ways of coexistence possible through appropriation, tenderness, and dialogue”, said Adriana Blidaru, curator of the exhibition.

The exhibition “Gems! for the Garden” will be open to the public between September 8 and October 31, 2023. Visiting the show is based on the access ticket to the greenhouses and the museum in the “Dimitrie Brandza” Botanical Garden. We recommend consulting the complete visiting program on the website. In parallel with the exhibition program, Living Content is preparing a series of temporary artistic interventions, which will be announced in the coming weeks on the Instagram page.

Project team: Adriana Blidaru – curator; Tatiana Moise – project manager and curatorial advisor, Andreea Pietroșel – PR and communication, and Flavius ​​​​Augustin Budău – visual and graphic identity.
