Adrian Ganea and I went back to our hometown to have our first duo show at B5 Studio in Târgu Mureș, Romania, 2022.

"to call the attention of the lover of the works of creation to those floral productions which flourish, in triumph, upon the ruins of a single building. Flowers are perhaps the most graceful and most lovely objects of the creation but are not, at any time, more delightful than when associated with what recalls to the memory time and place, and especially that of generations long passed away. They form a link in the memory, and teach us hopeful and soothing lessons, amid the sadness of bygone ages."
Flora of the Colosseum of Rome (1855) by Richard Deakin

Bloom is about Thea Lazăr's stories of plants and Adrian Ganea’s haunting forests, about secret gardens and deathless memories. Bloom is both accelerating metamorphosis and breaking for a split second. Bloom is putting off decay, collapse and ruin while avoiding certain decline for a moment. Returning to their hometown, Thea Lazăr and Adrian Ganea recollect memories and celebrate nostalgia. Flashbacks and voices form the past are guiding and steering them through a speedy digital cosmos where they search for the bloom between ruins.
