PASAJ / PASSAGE (EXTRA INFO)
Pasaj [Passage] is the second installment in the collaboration between Michele Bressan, Lea Rasovszky and Larisa Sitar after Voiaj [Journey] in 2011 (MNAC Anexa, 2nd). Starting from Edward W. Soja’s “third space” theory, this exhibition reflects on the artistic and conceptual strategies that create a new mental space, a necessary passage in setting up personal identities and understanding the other.
Michele Bressan (b.1980) lives and works in Bucharest. In 2010 he won the Constantin Brâncuși fellowship at the Cité Internationale des Arts Paris. In 2009 he recived the ESSL award for photography, and in the same year was nominee for the Henkel award.
