PLUG TO NATURE // DELTACRAFT

Rumänisches Kulturinstitut Wien

25.9.–4.10.2015

The Romanian Cultural Institute in the 4th district of Vienna invited people to roam through its rooms and facilities. With its exhibition PLUG TO NATURE // DELTACRAFT it created a bridge connecting traditional handicrafts from the Danube Delta with contemporary Romanian design. Two very different projects presented works from the region and focused on their geographical origin, for instance as objets trouvés of reeds or wood, etc. Local tradition and fascinating personal stories such as those of the canoer Ivan Patzaichin and the Rowmania initiative he founded were transposed here into new forms of design. The memorable images both of the spatial installation by Patzaichin and of the film presentation awakened a longing to visit the Danube Delta.
