Sample City

Sample City combines fragments of Romanian folklore and rap sounds with video of the city showing new shopping malls, socialist apartment complexes, and resident families of Romani people. They serve as the backdrop for the protagonist of the video based on the model of Păcală (“wise fool”) from Romanian folk culture, who carries a door on his back through Bucharest. The works of the artist explore the city in the sense of an emotionalization and personal observation.
