Early Works

In my early period (approx. 1975–1995), I used photography as a means of recording and documenting some actions and installations which, in a country subdued under a totalitarian regime, the way Romania used to be, could but seldom and only by way of exception be publicly displayed. In the 1980s, while being active in the international mail art network, many such “documents” could be distributed and exhibited all over the world in underground shows and publications, thus becoming free-standing artistic objects.
Looking now at my work of that period, I am most impressed by a certain state of restlessness that is coming out of it.
