curator and artist in residency program as part of the CHIOSC project - a
cultural info point and a public platform for participation:

The CHIOSC project continues the INTERVENTIONS3 project that took place in
Chisinau in 2008 and that consisted in a series of artistic interventions
in various public spaces. Please consult the PDF version of the catalogue
of INTERVENTIONS3 project here:
Besides playing the role of an interface between the local art community
and the international art scene, the CHIOSC project offers a platform for
discussing the todays condition of public space and the notion of
'public' aiming at understanding better the post-soviet urban space of
Chisinau, almost 2 decades after the fall of the Soviet Union. We are also
interested in artistic practices that extend the functionality of the
pubic space, and in art projects that are growing the access to public
space allowing different categories of people to make use of it.
CHIOSC project is also closely connected to the [Oberlist] mailing list
that we are managing: http://idash.org/mailman/listinfo/oberlist
The project identity is represented by the FLAT SPACE a work by Stefan
RUSU that was installed in November 2009 downtown in Chisinau and that
forms one of the central point around which the project activities are
carried out. Here is a video report from its launch:

the work itself.
