Miscellaneous Arts Center in Timişoara, Romania
Roots by Eva Saukane
Eva Saukane discovered an unedited roll of film inside her grandfather's camera. Having stood untouched for about 20 years, mold had grown into the film, blurring the images similarly as time does to our recalled memories.
Roots will be exhibited at Misc. starting with the 18th of January and until the 2nd of February.
Eva Saukane is a visual artist from Latvia, recently focusing on historical photo and video archives, family albums and found photography. Eva Saukane is a recent garduate of master of Arts in Photography at the Mid Sweden University, previously studying at the ISSP photography school in Riga. Eva is also a member of the Baltic Analog Lab, working with analog image making - both still and moving. Photographer’s most recent work “Roots" is published as a book by the Kultbooks.
The book will also be available for purchase at Misc.

Launched in the fall of 2017, The Misc. Arts Center has set out to be a space for new and innovative photography, theater and miscellaneous arts.
Misc. is located within one of Timisoara's most important historic architecture monuments, Timisoara's Cigarette Factory. The first one built in the Austro-Hungarian empire, and the first in Romania way back in 1847, it has since become a lifeless hulk. We're trying to bring some life back into the area, and there is no life like ART.
The Misc. Arts Center is located riverside, right next to the Bega canal, and a block away from the Timisoara North railway station.
We're a bunch of people that believe art should play an important part in the life of Timisoara and we'll strive to create a great, lively art space that welcomes everyone.
Misc. Is a self-funded endeavor. It has taken a lot of preparation to make the space habitable and welcoming to our guests, both in man hours and from a financial perspective.
Misc. is always looking for volunteers and for companies that are interested in sponsoring and encouraging the independent art scene in Timisoara. If you are interested in working with us towards a strong and vibrant independent arts sector, don't hesitate to contact us.
