Caesar 2.0 is a digital collage based on the trope of bringing together different timelines of history.In the vast ocean of  digital information available i believe that notions of time get distorted and blend together in a manner in which past  present and future are all attainable at once (albeit limited as far as actual experience goes). It takes into consideration a legendary figure transposed as a winter sports mannequin wearing a pair of Nike ski goggles. The bust of Caesar also bares  what is called a tribal tattoo , an aesthetic embraced by many tattoo enthusiasts who know little to nothing about it`s purpose or meaning but take it on as a gesture of continuation of indigenous tribal attitudes.The work is designed to break and blend cultural barriers in the same way in which our digital connectivity/dependence does.

ARTISTS


George Crîngașu (RO)

George Crîngașu (b.1988, Focșani) lives and works in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. His work ranges from installation to animated gifs, and it is mostly comprised of 2D and 3D compositions build on freely available content found rummaging through various corners of the internet. Re-assembling bits and pieces of data gives him a feel of participating in the sort of entropic nature information seems to rely on: any type of data should be perpetually in motion and perpetually in a state of change. His practice focuses on data de/re-contextualization through one’s own means of appreciations and evaluation. The artist’s work has been exhibited in venues such as: Trafó gallery, Budapest; Art Encounter Biennial, Timișoara; Art Fair Basel, Liste; SABOT, Cluj-Napoca. He is the co-founder of the SUPERLIQUIDATO art entity and space, project developing in Cluj-Napoca.
