Exhibition by Larisa David @ tranzit.ro/ Cluj
Larisa David’s project takes over the mechanisms of reiteration, dissemination and performance of group identities based on the content of history textbooks for primary school, over the last 25 years, and stages them in Cluj. Here the interactions between different ethnic groups are recreated, and a history of textbooks is outlined, which captures the distortion of history for some, and the omission of others.
26 March – 27 April 2015
Opening: Thursday, 26 March, 8 pm

Larisa David was born in Târgu-Mureș, Romania (1988), lives and works in Bucharest. She is an interdisciplinary artist working with installation, performance, actions and interventions through which she seeks to address the specific context of a space, circumstances or events. At the heart of her artistic practice lies the interest in the relationship between the individual and society, questioning conventions, attitudes and behaviors that occur in normative structures.
The exhibition is part of the project Fiction, Rhetoric, Facts initiated by tranzit.ro in 2012.
