As the current global situation caused by the Corona virus can’t be ignored, we take a step back to clear our minds of sorrow and anxiety. Our individual lives have been affected, in different and hard to understand ways. Despite these difficulties, visual artists went on with producing works of art, either out of the need to concentrate their energy in an artistic way or out of a desire to escape this new overwhelming environment that has taken over all channels of information dissemination, making it harder to maintain a positive attitude. 

As human connection was/still is limited to virtual meetings, many of us started to engage more and more with our surroundings, developing an increased interest for nature, the loved ones and the furry companions around us; elements from our immediate proximity that didn't seem to have so much to offer until 2020. With social interactions paused, other types of interactions started to develop. 

The exhibition proposes glimpses of such interactions: from inventories of the plants around the house, sketches or studies of loved ones, manifestations of loneliness by imagining fictional characters in the privacy of the apartment, to considerations on those few actors still active in the public domain (police officers, construction workers, etc.).


Lateral ArtSpace is an independent platform for contemporary art, initiated in April 2012 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, as an experimental platform for young and emerging artists. The project aims to promote contemporary Romanian artists, as well as to introduce international artists to the Romanian audience. Lateral ArtSpace assists and promotes the development of solo exhibitions and group projects, together with a program of events that include performance, video screenings, public gatherings, books/magazine launches and artist talks etc. 

Until December 2019, Lateral ArtSpace was based at The Paintbrush Factory. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the gallery space was closed and currently relocation efforts are in progress. In the meantime, the team is working on launching a new website, organising the archive and a few editorial projects in collaboration with local artists.
