Stefan Tanase – I Feel So Vacation Today…

Diploma project by Stefan Tanase

I Feel so Vacation Today… is a time machine that brings an existing scene from 2019 into the continuous present, namely the atypical sequence from the For Sale exhibition that took place in Bern at Ballostar Mobile, where Ștefan Tănase simulated his own accident by driving a car through the gallery window. To succeed, the artist himself used a sledgehammer with which he broke the window. The accumulation of ideas inevitably took off through a snowball technique, rolling and growing increasingly. Tănase manages to find the humorous formula between post-communist aesthetics and western economics as exemplified by the communist slogan “we work, we don’t think!”.

Macula Workshop avec David Douard

Workshop with David Douard, Lucas Erin

Questionner l’économie des images et l’idée d’authorship à travers un exercice de manipulations d’images digitales vers un objet physique. Remettre en question le rapport d’une génération artistique « Google » qui se servait volontiers dans un gouffre d’image internet pour les manipuler à foison. Aujourd’hui ce rapport est contesté par de nouvelles technologies servant et à donner une valeur et une authenticité au détournement ( NFT ) David Douard propose ainsi un workshop de sérigraphie sur 3 jours comme un moment de jouissance productive où les enjeux seraient l’appropriation par la superposition. C’est une réflexion sur l’image à capturer et sur la potentialité subjective d’une image à travers le rapport au texte, la poésie ou le langage.

Stefan Tanase – Delivery Trip

Stefan Tanase – Delivery Trip

Diploma project by Stefan Tanase

In 2017 I started to focus on the contemporary meaning of “delivery” as a daily job in real life. Since then, this concept has become the main subject of my artistic approach. This topic has also become a cultural movement throughout the world. Nowadays, “delivery” acts as a daily reminder about my day-to-day work. Hence, when you see someone in the city making a delivery or when he/she is delivering something to your home, it evokes my work and vice versa. What comes to your mind when you think about delivery? Struggles, illusions of happiness, easy money, the youth, neighbourhood life, the working classes, etc. More than that, the cultural aspect of delivery impacts upon everyone (Amazon, DHL, artwork deliveries, Uber Eats to name but a few…). For my graduation project I address the concept of delivery like a trip (excursion) and a journey under the influence (trip). What next?
