Sandwich is an artist-run space in Bucharest, Romania, opened in 2016.
Sandwich uses the hidden potential of a residual space in-between two utilitarian buildings, with the atypical proportion of 1.5 by 8 meters. It is located in an industrial area of the city, within the nordic periphery of the city. Starting from the assumption that any restraint is a resource for finding the ultimate solution, sandwich converts the characteristics of the chosen space into constructive limits and challenges a series of site-specific projects and installations from Romanian and international artists.
In Beijing, the team of artists & friends running Sandwich will present various personal and collaborative works, created especially for this occasion.
Daniela Palimariu works with performative sculptures and the transformation of spaces and will install Leaning Corners around the exhibition space. Dan Vezentan's interest in zootechnics comes from his personal connection with all aspects of farming dating from his childhood in the countryside. In Beijing, he is building one of his Chicken Coops. Alexandru Niculescu – working mainly as a figurative painter – and Cristian Raduta – a sculptor, are collaborating to create a butterfly-shaped artist studio that speaks about the fragility and vulnerability of the art practice, especially of the studio one.
