Monotremu

About:

The artistic duo Monotremu, formed in Timișoara in 2010 by Laura Borotea and Gabriel Boldiș, is known
for its ironic-critical artistic practice, focused on the apathy and shortcomings of Romanian society,
context and civilization which, like the ambiguous zoological category of monotremes—the term which
inspired the pseudonym the two use—is placed in an area that is still being clarified with an uncertain
status, somewhere between mammals and birds (concerning monotremes), somewhere between East and
West (concerning Romania).
It is a class apart, primitive according to certain criteria, but better said, unclassifiable and impossible to
integrate into pre-established structures. From 2012 they have been developing Minitremu, a creative lab
facilitating access to contemporary art for kids and teenagers.


Education:

The duo's educational background sums up an M.F.A. in Fine Arts along with a mix of Politics and
Sociology studies.
