Land art for Bucharest 2021
"Organic conspirations" is the name of an installation at the entrance in the historic core of Bucharest, in front of the recently renovated building which now hosts Arcub, the office of the city major for the competition for 2021 European capital of culture.
The installation, along with other 4, is present in the public space from 16 august till 16 september 2016.
The landscape architect was trained in France and now runs an office in Romania. The approach for temporary land art in the public space builds on former initiatives of the same for so-called "Arts et paysage" run by the French Institute in Bucharest at former anniversaries of the city. On competition entry to these was presented on a poster at the Sarajevo Le Notre landscape forum.
For the application as Bucharest capital of culture the "Ion Mincu" run projects concerning the mapping of open spaces, the identification of public spaces (spontaneous or not) where cultural activities should be mixed with green function (including mobile, temporary ones), the concept of greening for quarters (micro-topia, green-topia), all of these being strategies promoted by Bucharest, cultural capital.
