Trapped Nature: Instalation by Ana Kun
Ana Kun installs a series of blank flags with cutout texts allowing the free flowing of the air to create a soothing sound.
The texts comment on the human and non-human experience of river Bega, and are placed in key-points on its riverbanks, on the south-east part: Autotim Bus Station Pontoon (Iosefin neighbourhood), Flora Restaurant, Solventul area, Children’s Park Footbridge, Tudor Vladimirescu 33 (port railing), Podul de Fier (Maria area), under the Stefan cel Mare bridge, The Free Zone, Usoda Base.
The messages can be read by looking at the landscape through the openings, trapping an image and a sound of nature with each wind gust.
