Focus/ Unfocus [Unused Reality]



Unfocusing from the level of a surface allows you to be conscious of the existence of a superior layer.

  • this layer is invisible.
  • this layer is an in-between medium.

The unobservable creates an unused reality.

The sound illustrates a similar situation. Changing the frequencies we are pushing the limits of perception. The sound still exists although the human ear cannot perceive it.

It is beyond 19000 Hz.

Ciprian Ciuclea (b. 1976, Timisoara, Romania) is a visual artist based in Bucharest, Romania. He is interested in site-specific projects that focus mainly on conceptual aspects of reception. He develops complex installations involving light, sound and video. The themes explored, often using his personal face and body as an instrument, are related to social aspects of communication and message interpretation, contemplation and surveillance, usually placed in relationship with scientific aspects of human existence. He exhibited worldwide including Saitama Modern Art Museum, Japan; Engramme, Quebec, Canada; Platforma MNAC, Bucharest, Romania; Brukenthal National Museum, Sibiu, Romania; D. Manuel Palace, Evora, Portugal; Hospital de Santiago, Cuenca, Spain and alternative spaces. He is also the President of Experimental Project and Director of IEEB (International Experimental Engraving Biennial).

Ciprian Ciuclea takes part in the second edition of the X Platform as invited by Andreea Căpitănescu, Artistic Director of the 4Culture Association and curator of WASP – Working Art Space and Production.
