The Facebook Project/Existential Mice
This project started in 2011 as daily drawings posted on Facebook for one month. They were inspired by recent readings of Romanian feminist writer Mihaela Miroiu and American writer bell hooks, as well as by the insufficient platforms for contemporary art and especially for feminist art in Bucharest.
6 years into the project, it still captures my real and fake internal dialogues with regards to political issues such as gender inequality or racism, or “personal” issues such as intimacy, desire and intense emotional states. The characters of the drawings are anthropomorphized mice who talk to each other, poke fun at each other, or try to educate one another, and are the descendants of my childhood drawings.
