Since 2010 he has been an active member of the Satellite group together with he recently opened a cultural production NGO. Recentely he participate at The Exotic Plants exhibition (July-September 2020). In 2019 he exhibited „ARTIST, CUMPĂR APARTAMENT ÎN ACEST BLOC!” (ARTIST, I BUY AN APARTMENT IN THIS BLOCK!), part of „Culture Class” project, and „PERETELE DE CALCIU AL UNUI MIC-BURGHEZ”/ THE CEMENT PLASTER FINISH WALL OF A PETIT BOURGEOIS, part of „Narațiuni Concurente” project, which were both curated by Florin Bobu and Livia Pancu, and organized by 1+1 association and tranzit.ro/ Iași. In 2020 he participated in the Electroputere Air 2020 residency program, organized by Electroputere Craiova Gallery. In 2017 he participated together with the writer Ovid Pop in the Artist-in-Residence residency program Q21 organized by MuseumsQuartier (Vienna, Austria), with a scholarship supported by tranzit.org. His artistic practice combines dreams, past ‘marking’ experiences and futuristic fantasies in order to translate into a hybrid representation of multiple reality negotiated through emphatic acceptance. Through various mediums, he is interested in the overlap between cultural production and local space policies and its capacity to influence the urban public sphere or rural areas that are visited and revised over longer periods. He is concerned with ways in which cultural design and branding affect daily life and can be used as constructive practices for human emancipation.
