About the show Glitchy Venus:
Glitchy Venus investigates the existence of the digital artwork related to the ephemeral milieu.
Glitchy Venus is a virtual scan of the Venus de Milo, obtained for free on the Internet.
Glitchy Venus is a simulacrum, being just one of the infinite multiplications of the Venus de Milo physical statue.
Glitchy Venus is not alone, there are an infinite number of versions moving and living over the cyberspace.
Glitchy Venus was also exhibited, one year ago, at “MEMEnto - Internet Semper” now online at http://mementointernetsemperaba.altervista.org/
Bogdan Melinte is graduated from the Fine Art Academy of Rome.
About the WAG:
Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born
on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room
fitting into people's pocket. Every month, the WAG hosts a solo
digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context.
So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary
exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an
online archive that creates a permanent collection. WAG website
