Artist and filmmaker Adina Pintilie’s multimedia project You Are Another Me—A Cathedral of the Body marks the latest stage of her decade-spanning research on the politics and poetics of intimacy and the body, developed through multiple artistic languages and embracing togetherness beyond borders and binaries. 

In 2022, Adina Pintilie was selected to represent Romania at the 2022 Venice Art Biennial. On that occasion, the artist created a series of new works, a six-channel film installation, a cinematic sculpture and a VR installation, that are currently presented here at Kunsthalle Bega, for the first time in Romania, in the Opening of the Cultural Program of Timișoara 2023 European Capital of Culture.

While contributing to the current conversations reassessing the normative in gender, sexuality, bodily ability and diversity, Pintilie’s distinctive perspective is conveyed through a particular visual universe, aesthetics, and a trust-building methodology, as well as a rethinking of the role and power of the moving image. Her artistic process emerges from her personal experiences and research, and is nurtured by long-term collaboration and bonds with her protagonists. It explores the central role of intimacy in the everyday and desires to open a site of self-reflexive processes for the visitors. In the spirit of the Mayan greeting In Lak’ech Ala K’in - You Are Another Me, the project places connection to our own body and the bodies of others at the center of our personal and political lives.

While you may enter and exit the exhibitionin your own time, we suggest you experience the works for their entire duration.
