SEQUENCE #19. The Opportunity Passed in Less Than a Minute
The Opportunity Passed in Less Than a Minute is Adriana Preda’s first solo show at SEQUENCE, Suprainfinit Gallery, alongside a performance at the opening on fashion trends, vitrine merchandised displays, and adjectives-labels used in relation with clothes. Working with existing garments gathered from family members or flea markets, Adriana Preda transforms the clothing and textiles into sculptural compositions that encapsulate delicate moments in time. The exhibition title is loosely borrowed from Roy Montgomery’s song, referring to momentary trends that become difficult to grasp, where attention is shifted to the one and only, the compulsive, the fleeting moment that is so easy to lose – the present.

This installation is the last one in a series of five artistic interventions created by emerging local artists, part of the project SEQUENCE & Mântuleasa in the vitrine of Suprainfinit Gallery in summer-autumn 2023. Every exhibition was accompanied by a performative, community event on the sidewalk during the opening, aiming to make art accessible to passers-by and fostering a sense of shared experience within the Mântuleasa neighborhood.
