The group was formed by Romelo Pervolovici and Maria Manolescu, in 1998.


With us, META steps into the foreground of independence and identity, which it had not had as a prefix, thus losing its quality as an annex to something.

What was it as an element of composition/annex?

Among others:

It suggested the idea of post (metaphysics).
It aimed towards transformation, change (metamorphosis).
As a prefix, META is directed towards art, discourse, painting, logic, mathematics, physics, psychology, philosophy etc.

Referring to META-art, the discourse is concerned with the classic connotation of the “ART ABOUT ART”. We add: “ART VERSUS ART”, “ART INFESTED BY ART”, “INNER/OUTER ART” “IN FRONT OF/ BEHIND ART” etc.

META-art: what am I / how do I look? What does art tell us about itself or about other discourses, about codes and conventions, the way in which we “see” and how we were taught to do it, representation and visibility? These are only a few topics which META-art brings into discussion.

Transition, privatization, democratization, this is the atmosphere in which META was born, preserving its prefix connotation, next to.

Among others, to us META signifies never alone. The projects, the visual discourses we get involved in are almost every time connected to this next to.
