The time that will come

"In 2005, while I still living in Cluj, a friend told me that in Sweden  at every four months is scheduled an air raid alarm when the sirens begin to sound for one minute in Malmo and all other Swedish cities. I've been thinking lately, about what he told me then. In 2010 I sketched a first draft form but I realized that was not feasible, it lacks something. Then I found out that actually are more countries where an air raid siren is scheduled at regular intervals. That changed my way of working. In 2011 I bought a ticket to Tel Aviv for the spring of the next year, knowing that it meant I must start working on the project. I do not have time. Here I made the first video of the first alarm. Next cities were Paris and Amsterdam. The three videos of this ongoing projects 'The time that will come' will be part of the exhibition of the same name hosted by Alert Studio".

ALERT studio is an independent project initiated by Raluca Demetrescu Alina Buga and Catalin Burcea in order to create a platform of research and promotion of contemporary artistic production. Taking on the function of alaboratory space, Studio Alert proposes a meeting between artists, ideas, directions and speeches from different areas of conceptual and cultural spaces. Critical thinking and interrogation are important and valued as research methods in the contemporary cultural and artistic field.

ALERT studio stands as a gallery project, connecting three areas of artistic exploration – PINK | RED | WHITE – into one space. But these coordinates do not mean indexing, labeling and restriction. They may intersect, combine in new shades, and may always communicate and trigger debates.
