Never seen before creatures, hybrid characters and daring beings took the stage in a spectacular and immersive art and tech experience: ANOMALICA
The 12th edition of One Night Gallery featured Maria Bălan‘s unique artwork. The show was built around her latest project ANOMALICA, a series of creatures coming to life in her book made in a special edition for this event. Her characters were introduced to the audience in an immersive show gravitating around her book.
What better place to impress an audience than a circus ring – at the Bucharest Metropolitan Circurs.
The 13 characters presented in the book (100 unique copies available only at the event) are the result of several months of hard work using the special technique of linocut. Linocut is a very uncommon, almost forgotten approach of artistic expression and also a very challenging one to transpose into new media art.
The event combined an exhibition and a book release, all presented to the audience through augmented reality and video mapping, two mediums that enhanced the visitors’ experience while keeping the essence of the artwork intact and creating new artworks in the process.
