Wishing Wells
PUBLIC SPACE
2013

These photographs were made during a residency at Bucharest AIR, with the support of the Mondriaan Fund.

During a short period of economic growth in the early 2000s the city of Bucharest was flooded with billboards. After a few years most of them remained empty. Their large white panels open up to an unexpected tranquility and potential in the midst of busy streets. Wishing Wells is a series of photographs of these billboards, that have been exhibited in combination with texts and the performance Wishing Well [Link}.
