Artworlds are mildly choreographed processes that are establishing as artworks not only products but production, research, curating, art making, forms of living. Artworlds are vague, their esthetic effects are somehow always beyond their appearances, they can be presented as events, products, performances, concepts, practices, processes, artistic identities… They can take different forms in different contexts and still maintain their internal chaotic coherence of a world. They are artworks as artworlds. The first Artworld, Unsorcery, was meant to compose and explore ways of sorcery that can eventually surpass or undo some of the contemporary realities and subjectivities. Black Hyperbox was an extension of Unsorcery in a collective. In the last Artworld, the Clinic, initiated also because Alina Popa’s hopeless disease, the art space was transformed into a clinic where esthetic healing and performative therapies were meant to happen. In the past seven years Alina Popa and Florin Flueras were working together in these Artworlds environments, each following their own path, doing their own practices, texts and works. Some of these works can be seen in the exhibition.
