Lynn Cazabon in Bucharest
The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest (MNAC) presents Losing Winter, an exhibition of the work of artist Lynn Cazabon (USA), 6 – 16 September 2018. Cazabon was the winner of the 2018 Re-Constructing MNAC Outreach Program competition, resulting in her residency in Bucharest to realize her unique public art project based on exchanges with Bucharest citizens, local collaborators, and businesses. Losing Winter is an emotional archive about the season of winter, using human recollection of weather to provide a glimpse of climate change as it intersects with individual lifetimes. Cazabon recorded people narrating their memories about winter at locations in Bucharest and at MNAC in July in exchange for custom-packaged ice cream. She also worked with a local ice artist to create a series of unique ice sculptures inspired by selected memories that are the subject of her new video MELT.
