Loredana Nedelcu | curator Shared experiences

Loredana Nedelcu is a graduate of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning in Timisoara. Since her early student years she has been moving towards cultural projects and has been interested in the unseen connections between different fields and interdisciplinary approaches. She made her curatorial debut with the exhibition Shared Experiences.

Shared Experiences started from the premise of creating a collaborative network between artists from Timisoara and Bucharest – Dorian Bolca, Floriama Cândea, Claudia Chiriță, Cătălin Crețu, Cosmin Haiaș, Liliana Mercioiu-Popa, and scientists from the community of Politehnica University Timisoara. Centered around a residency that took place this summer at MV sci-art and in the UPT labs, the exhibition investigated how artistic and scientific practices can intersect to give rise to new ideas and concepts.

Based on concepts from network science, the Shared Experiences exhibition became a fluid grid of ideas and concepts still in the incubation stage, a process that invited us to explore multiple perspectives on the world around us and how art and science can become “centres of influence” in shaping new social, economic, etc. networks. Artists have made the transition into the realm of the hard sciences, scientific iteration and testing reality through laboratory experiment, and scientists have broadened their horizons of knowledge and become acquainted with other kinds of approaches. Shared experiences have thus become network nodes, clusters of epistemological information that can generate tangible effects in shaping societies that are more open to innovation and experimentation.
