THE WORK IS BASED ON THE LIFE STORY OF MR. P (person living with HIV in Norway)
"The largest percentage, of all the sources we spoke to, gave up actually touching the HIV-infected person, even though they do not transmit the virus through touch. Also, as a consequence of this, they themselves have given up this gesture, which is a real separation from the clear social side that dominates practically all our lives and the assimilation of other ways of being part of contemporaneity, physically, even in small and very small communities, as they themselves reported. The paper makes it abundantly clear that the friendship of a person living with HIV stops in most cases at a simple touch." - Bogdan Roșca
A sculptor by vocation, with works in stone and wood, but his favourite remains metal. He has numerous creations exhibited both in various cities in the country and abroad. His life and activities go in stages, the succession being generated by his professional path.
"All my works are dynamic and I have a particular style of expression. Some are works that contain myths, others are figurative and all are inspired by my social life, my passions and my experiences. For me it is very important that my works convey a push factor and that people understand who I am. If you understand one of my sculptures, you understand who I am, because it is a part of me." - Bogdan Roșca
