Alexandra Pirici and Basicyear, Organism curated by Amelia Groom
Basicyear, Amelia Groom, Alexandra Pirici

Performative exercise in distributed, networked decision-making. A practical, corporeal enactment of a sort of hive-mind and intelligent mass, and a reflection on co-dependency, linking to a world-view that necessarily needs to change from anthropomorphic, fictional individualism and colonial ethos to mutual constitutive flows in an inter-connected global village.

Alexandra Pirici is a Bucharest based artist. She has a background in choreography but works undisciplined, across different mediums, from choreography to visual arts and music. Her works have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale (Romanian Pavilion at the 55th edition of the biennial together with Manuel Pelmus), the 9th Berlin Biennale, Manifesta 10, Tate Modern London, the Centre Pompidou, Museum Ludwig Cologne, The 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition, the Van Abbemuseum, Hebbel am Ufer Berlin among others. She received the Excellence Award from the National Dance Center in Bucharest and in 2015 her public space performative monument Monument to Work has been acquired by the Public Art Agency for the Swedish state. In 2017 she is participating in the decennial international art exhibition Skulptur Projekte Münster.
