Mihai Plătică

”Before graduating with a photography degree in Cluj, I was a professional athlete (long jump), which offered me a quite organized and rational experience. It also probably helped me to define my working technique later on. I have always been interested in the history of the body, the nature of materiality and the universal laws of physics. I like to conceive of objects/sculptures and photographs using scientific theories that allow for a different positioning. My approach is methodical, scientific, rational, but I try to open new perspectives on the world. In my exhibitions I wish to convey an entire mood and not just the object, but its context as well.” – Mihai Plătică
