Unfinished Conversations on the Weight of Absence focuses on three individual art projects conceived by artists belonging to the ‘1980s generation’ in Romania: Belu Simion Făinaru, Dan Mihălțianu and Miklós Onucsán, who often emphasised the processual, conceptual, and dialogical qualities of art. These installations are contemporary versions of historically significant art projects, which resume and evoke nomadic artistic trajectories. Through the conjunction of experimental documentary pieces and poetic heterotopic spaces, which suspend, displace, or disperse the notion of locality, the selected pieces disruptively approach the notion of national representation by revealing absences fissuring its core.
