In anticipation of the Brâncuși exhibition in Timișoara, visual artist Mihai Donici creates a project of 20 ethnosculpture exhibitions that prefigure the world of Brâncuși's forms. The project takes place over a period of 5 months and includes exhibitions in Unirii Square every Thursday between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM. The exhibitions are conceived in an evolutionary manner, with different pieces exhibited for each event, resulting in constantly changing artistic configurations. Designed as an urban intervention with artistic means, the project offers an immersive experience inside a large popular culture and its captivating mythology. The accompanying performance is interactive, with the spontaneous audience being invited to play the traditional toace drums and handle the "scare-the-crows" tools. The exhibitions also aim to prepare the local and transient cultural public for the contextualized reception of the Brâncuși exhibition this autumn.
The project is part of the National Cultural Program Timișoara - European Capital of Culture 2023 and is funded through the LoB2023+ program, carried out by the Cultural and Art Center of Timiș County, with funds allocated from the state budget through the Ministry of Culture.
