Newcastle University MFA 2015 Summer Exhibition - Mirela Bistram

Mirela Bistran
is a Romanian artist living in the UK.
In her “
Unfolded Dowry
” she explores the cultural significance of objects
.
The imagined space of the installation is a layerin
g of references alluding to
Romanian cultural heritage and veiling Bistran’s ow
n memories.
In seeming together old and new fabrics - hand fini
shed and machine fabricated –
the past and the present, the real and the artifici
al combine.
The installation is a journey out of time, it is ab
out past traditions – though traditions
which have become increasingly alien – and it is th
rough memory: but it is a memory
re-imagined, remembered and manufactured.
