Calin Dan
Memory Tags (A Lounge)
31 August - 6 October 2007
Opening 6pm Thursday 30 August

Amsterdam-based Romanian art critic, curator and artist Calin Dan will exhibit his work at the Experimental Art Foundation. Nomadic cultures, ephemeral architecture, urban sub-cultures and
zones of conflict are just a few of the tags that can be used to think about Dan’s video/film/installation work—a mode of art production that resists easy categorisation. Calin Dan’s audio-visual narratives engage the viewer in stories embedded in a Europe of post-Soviet era
perspectives. The stories are often culturally unfamiliar, yet entice the viewer to stay and watch a little longer (‘lounge’) with ordinary ‘in-the-world’ imagery and situations. The artist has
developed the concept of 'Emotional Architecture', a blend of personal observations, folklore, historical narratives and architectural critique. A publication of the work of Calin Dan, published
by the EAF for this exhibition titled ... til here from now ... an

Emotional Architecture stopover will be available. 48pp with texts and images by Calin Dan and introductory essay by Teri Hoskin. ISBN 978-0-949836-53-3
workshop: city tags
24-31 August
While in residence Calin Dan will lead a six-day workshop titled City Tags with artists from South Australia and interstate. Dan and the participants will examine the city via tagging practices and
cultures using video, sound and still imagery. Workshop registration is now closed.
artist talk and lecture:
Experimental Art Foundation,
4pm Friday 31 August.
