ROMANIAN DESIGN WEEK APPEARANCES

2018 // SOFICA
Who is Sofica?

She left Măcin for Brăila on her 18th birthday, but ended up in Stockholm – the most beautiful city in her world. It all started from a coffee cup (fika, in Swedish), in which the past and the future could alternatively be predicted.
The project is part of the PUCK exhibition - Pop-Up Creative Kit - Zeppelin, Bucharest
The illustrations are made using pencil and black ink.

2017 // Turb@
Each time we plug in a smart device and see the battery charged at 100%, we ( do not ) know that 30% of the fill is coal. We consume coal and we close up mines, while other are reopening them.

People in areas dedicated to the extractive industry are running away from the "lignite'' tag, are running away from the tag of unemployed coal miner. The problem: how to create a new kind of identity - coal-based.

Coal can be expressive. It has intrinsic material expressivity and beyond that, it knows how to leave traces on paper. Drawing with coal! "Turb@". A book about coal, illustrated in coal by Ioana Trusca. Justin Baroncea was the storyteller, TRSC was the illustrator and Radu Manelci mounted the images into a book. A comic book about rabbits "getting high" on coal and becoming hysterical. A Japanese mad scientist ends up in Tg. Jiu. Monumental art in the background. Black & white. Coal everywhere. By Pandapanda. A way of selling overpriced coal. Expensive! But not quite!
