#EPISODE 3 - SANDWICH
Sandwich started off by using the hidden potential of a residual space with the proportion of 1.5 by 8 meters, found in-between two utilitarian buildings, and is slowly but constantly expanding. It is located in a former industrial area of Bucharest, rapidly developing towards an art district and including various galleries, off-spaces and artist studios. Strongly believing that any restraint is a resource for finding the ultimate solution, Sandwich converts the characteristics of the chosen space into constructive limits. Since its opening in 2016, Sandwich has devoted most of its resources to the production of new works, site-specific art projects and installations, suitable for an outdoor space, by both Romanian and international artists: Thomas Tsang (HK), Jorge Peris ( SP), Mike Nelson (UK), Dan Perjovschi (RO), Abraham Cruzvillegas (MX), Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkacova (SK), Liliana Basarab (RO), Lazaros (USA) and many more.
