Liviu Bulea is an artist based in Turda, Romania. He can be considered “a social practise installation artist”. He is part of the class of 2019 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Scholarship Program.
Liviu Bulea recovers seemingly useless material fragments that come from precise contexts. The hospital’s wall where he was treated when he had cancer (“About white”), the city’s sidewalk where he had grown up, and pieces of concrete from a mall that was built over a community. He depicts the traumatic process into an emotion- making installation that creates unusual attention to some social processes lost in selective memory.
