Around ten years ago, a group of young Romanian artists, known as the Cluj Connection took the international art world by storm. They all shared a profound technical training and far-reaching systems of reference in art history. As an assistant of the painter Adrian Ghenie, Mi Kafchin (b.1986) came to this loosely knit group shortly after finishing her studies. Her technical and thematic enjoyment of experimentation distinguished her from her fellow artists in the group. She took on a board spectrum of artistic means of artistic means of expression, stretching from drawing and painting to sculpture and expansive installations. At the same time, she developed a canon of motifs rich in contrasts that reflects the collage-like visual worlds of our media age like a kaleidoscope : this fusion of art history and quotations from popular culture resulted in a tension-filled visual program.
