Romanian transition to neoliberalism that started in the 90’s after the revolution, followed by its European integration, was marked by a noticeable ideological shift and massively distorted different dimensions of the society - beliefs that transgressed and colonised entire parts of cities. Their structures, architectures, images, artefacts are haunted with the motif of the pyramid. The pyramid witnessed a moment of transition, its meaning transgressed as Romania was reinventing itself.
A giant shook his moody boots and left those piles in the village Sona. At the right moment of the solar year, three shades of the mountain Ceahlau overlap in an illusionary pyramid. In Pitesti, the communists built a biologic water purifying pyramid. The pyramids of Giza are an element of local antisemitic conspiracy theories. In the 2000’s a financial pyramid called the National Investment Fund collapsed.
But the pyramids are porous, they interact with time and space. Listen to the waves they emit closely, and you will learn more than you thought you would.
