POLLUTION -project by KO.KE.M / INTERart 2006/ Friday 27th April 2007 , 19.00

The period we live in causes more a mental and physical indisposition rather than making us feel content and fulfilled.Pollution in both its obvious and hidden forms-is present in our everyday:

- the changes needed to adapt to consumer society
- the loss or change of values
- superficiality, poverty and lack of culture
- pursuit of material goods
- lack of time, pseudo-cultural consumerism
- false freedom, so on

All the above factors present us with the circumstances that lead to mental and physical pollution. The achievements with the help of institutions, cultural programs, foundations and cultural centers promote, protect and create cultural values ; as well as artists through their peculiar approach and handling of the situation - professional associations and contemporary artists raise the awareness of pollution amongst various social problems through their own experience.

ROCA -real time web cam stream double performance double location ,March 31 ,2007

Theopelmus versus Bogdan Pelmus

locations: LOADING_OPEN LAB , Bucharest, Romania + Petite Mort Gallery , Ottawa , Canada

hours: 10 pm - Romanian time + 3 pm Canadian time

In 2006 La Petite Mort Gallery hosted the hotly debated performance Romanian Wound-Canadian Wound, where the artist was permanently branded with the 2 flags Romanian and Canadian. Not one to shy away from the prickly subject of displacement and belonging , Theopelmus will perform live with his artist-
brother Bogdan Pelmus in Bucharest , via web cam at the Closing party of the show Evolving Identity on March 31 at 3 pm(Canadian time).They will both walk on a white tightrope , doing their best not to fall off . It's you who will decide if you watch 2 men facing each other or just one man facing a mirror.
"Being the same , being in the same space , being in the same time , if I ask my brother from Romania what time is it , I'll be told that is 7 hours ahead . I never understood why has to be different time in different places . I thought that being able to speak with the other at a certain moment doesn't affect the time. Once I have the opportunity to speak with him , I would aspect to be told that his watch and my watch run the same. I'm sure that it's not a problem of time but one of broken watches ."
