(UPDATED) How to support your favourite artists during physical distancing through social solidarity

In these hard times, culture needs to reassess its position in relation to society and the economy. Artists, musicians, curators, cultural managers, event organizers and places dedicated to culture have probably experienced the most drastic decline or cessation of activity in their entire career. Independent artists and cultural operators are often found at 3-4 events cancelled away from the inability to continue to support their artistic production. For 16 years and so far, the feeder.ro calendar has recommended between 4-10 events daily, sometimes even 25, of which 90% are produced by Romanian artists. Between March and April 2020 we can estimate the cancellation of at least 120 events, taking into account only the feeder.ro calendar, but the effects extend to future events, which have been postponed or cancelled. feeder.ro collaborating artists and partners replied to our short questionnaire about the impact of the current pandemic, whose answers we published as a Participatory article. Taking ideas from their responses and informal discussions, and observing current needs, we published an article that invites readers to support musicians, buying their music directly from them. Now we encourage you to fund visual artists who work diligently to expand our imagination and insight, through direct purchases of their works.

Here is a list containing artists we love and their artworks (in no particular order):

RECIS

”What can I say … Livin Covida Loca! I do not enjoy it, but neither does the idea of ​​isolation requires me too much. I used to spend a lot of time working inside, before now, but now I can do it for myself. This period I set out to be as productive as possible and to do everything I have postponed so far, for various reasons, even to undertake new projects, or to improve existing ones. It really affects me financially the fact that in the last weeks various works have been postponed or canceled but I try to see the full part of the glass and focus my attention elsewhere, respectively on the work in the workshop, where I propose to spend most of my time. I want to prepare new series of works, but also a set of decorative pieces, which I have been working on for some time and which I hope to exhibit soon. For the moment, I am focusing on a new collection of prints, with a theme a little more “street” than the last approaches, which I will gradually upload to Instagram and Facebook, as they will be completed. There is also a set of Screen Videos, both with the making of printers and W.I.P. (work in progress) with various personal studies in different ways of visual expression, both figurative and abstract. STAY TUNED!” – Recis

Robert OBERT

”Things are moving slower than usual, and when it comes to outdoor work, it is currently on standby. It helps me in a way that forces me to stay indoors and implicitly in the studio or home studio, which can be a plus for productivity. It remains my digital activity. Hand washing, face and special attention to the beard, cleaning and hygiene much more thorough in the house, some supplies in case of emergency and to avoid frequent trips in supermarkets, in general the common sense issues that we should do them all.”- Robert Obert

“Business wise, it’s sad and pretty hard. I liked a thing here at the Italians in the area we live in: it is a quite simple area and their tasks are not as connected online as in Romania – they have many family businesses that have closed (restaurants, fishermen, small factories of olive oil, bars, markets, etc.). But even so, without having the opportunity to buy online from these businesses, on the Facebook pages and news of the area are many comments from people who say that immediately what the madness will end, they will buy from those businesses and help them grow, because they are aware of their role in the community and their role in the families of those affected. It is much easier for us – we are all online and we can still buy online from small businesses and even if, in my case, the art is so … at the bottom of the list of priorities at the moment, it would be nice to have it when everything will be over.” – Mădălina Andronic

“As a studio (Studio Color), also as an artist it is the same situation. We try to be proactive with our own unfinished projects, such as the alphabet. On the artistic side I only study and try to get involved in social projects, only because I concentrate hard, but the random drawing for relaxation and reading works. And the biggest stress remains the care for the parents, because my mother is in Iasi and she is alone. But we are active with call conf.” – Loreta Isac

„I had a pretty intense period in the last few months, which brought me to the brink of burnout, so I had already planned at the beginning of March a time when I would have the opportunity to focus on various new skills and personal projects. I try to stick to my original plan, but I was much calmer when this decision came against the background of my fatigue, knowing that from time to time I will have the opportunity to work with various collaborators, to have constant financial support. Now it is mostly pretty quiet, the projects were either delayed or left in the air, so I try to redirect all the efforts of the original plan. From a professional point of view, the most scary thing is the possibility of not having to work for a long period of time, but I must admit that these are some fears that I usually have regardless of the period, now they are only accentuated by a real context. Otherwise, there were no major changes, I am used to working from home, I focus on what I can improve on myself and in breaks I enjoy pancakes and cats. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to stay safe in the house and that there are people who do not have this luxury during this period.” – Mura

“It is very difficult for me to accept and think how it will affect us, the artists, the fact that the world has taken an indefinite break. I feel like I came to the supersaturation of bad news and I don’t want to hear them anymore because I feel helpless. As for the actual isolation, I am a freelancer, so I am used to working from home. Although the fact that you know you can’t get out of the house when you feel like, it is something I haven’t experienced before and I have a choking sensation. The only good thing is that I am more productive this time because I try to keep myself busy so that I don’t get depressed because I can’t do anything to hurry or fix things. It seems to me that it is blessing for us that we can draw and reduce our stress and anxiety level.” – Alina Marinescu

“There are problems for those who had planned exhibitions, but fortunately I didn’t have anything planned soon. I should have gone again to a residence for artists in Serbia and I think it will be postponed. Also, I have a paper stuck in NY that I was supposed to receive during this time and it can’t be sent. Otherwise the same.” – Victor Fota

“Our main activity was (and hopefully there will be, at the end of the tunnel) video mapping for events, which will definitely be on hold for a while. However, we try to look at the full part of the glass, namely to focus on the content, we will probably need to make an online and digital turn. Therefore, we would be happy to work in this regard: music videos, 2D and 3D animations for online, 3D modeling and everything involves a mix between them.” – Aural Eye
