“It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,

New (and old) videos by Delia POPA and Diana SANDOR, followed by a speed dating performance with Ms. Popa & Ms.Sandor.
Delia POPA is an artist interested in elephants, bears and other wild, but giant animals. Her videos are often dialogues with herself in front of the camera and they sometimes take other forms, such as chants or electronic poems. Maan Menelu (2009) is an incursion into the world of love sickness, as expressed through the words of Romanian “Manele” songs. 5+20 (2006) is full of unseen characters. Elephant in the Salon (2007) is a story about a pink elephant, unhappy with his or her life. Tata-n Parc (2007) is a mourning song.
