Macari Lucia
Lucia Macari and Lilia Dragneva started their artistic duo from a serious involvement into sound-and-image experimentation. This was a result of their interest in the cross-pollination of various sources of the 20th century art (among which avant-garde music, Dada manifestations, electronic technologies), which resulted in a series of installations, video pieces and performances aimed at drawing the public out of its state of normal passivity. The duo also curated a two-year long appropriation project meant to fill in the deficit of information on the 20th century art that Moldova suffers from. The project, called "Kinovari (imitatzia)" (Cinnabar imitation), called on the artists of Moldova to copy works of art from this period and sign the copies with their names. The project however was not limited only to copying but also encouraged experimentation with names, trends and other artistic landmarks. Moving on from appropriation to synthesis, the duo researched the oral traditions of various regions, sections of the population, age groups, areas of occupation, etc. in order to form an artistic opinion about either forgotten or forbidden subjects of contemporary life and thus show the emergence of a new, actual mythology of the country and the mutual influence of psychological energies of various societal groups.
