Initiated in 2012 by Adrian Bojenoiu and Alexandru Niculescu, Mobile Biennale is an art project that aims at expanding and analyzing the relational context of contemporary art and culture. Mobile Biennial brings together personalities of the artistic world scene. Each edition is organised starting from a definite strategy and a curatorial plan according to which the entire project is carried on.
Mobile Biennial is a mise-en-oeuvre that inspires mobility and interaction which take place in a well-determined space or emplacement. Movement is the element placed at the core of the Mobile Biennale concept. Envisaged as a poetic materiality, movement acquires a particular shape according to the space-time dimensions that activate it whereas its content is engendered by the interaction and the heterogeneity of the participants who establish a special relation with the surrounding world.
Suggesting a revaluation of the symbolical and conceptual essence of the biennial as an institution, and of its relation to artistic production, Mobile Biennale can be best understood when taking into account the following features:
- Mobile Biennale brings together different types of behaviors. The project focuses on the participants‘ behaviors and on their free movement in relation to otherness and to the configuration and content of a geographically, culturally and historically determined space.
- Movement is understood as an act of going from one place to another within the confines of a territory (space/time), an act which engenders interaction.
- Taking part in the MB is considered as explicit artistic production; a potential exhibition phase of the project is optional and doesn’t constraint the participants to produce works.
- Mobile Biennale is not confined to a national and geographical space but may be carried out anywhere on the globe, in any type of space and time, according to the initial scenario.
- Mobile Biennale does not solely address visual artists but also people coming from other fields of activity, according to the initial plan specifically designed for each edition.
