galeria 29

Beginning with the month of August 2008 I opened a gallery in the living room of the apartment where I live with my family. This exhibition space allowed me to work independently, following my own interests. It also allowed me to function as an exhibiting artist and as a curator, at the same time. For some of the exhibitions I invited other curators to write the texts, in which case I was only the organizer of the event. At the end of the openings all the exhibits were given to the public through a raffle or tombola procedure. A number of ten exhibitions took place over a period extending for almost a year.
