Instalacija za Istanbul (Putujuće tajne), nastala 1995. godine, bavi se povijesnim trikovima krijumčarenja između Rumunjske i Mađarske, a sastoji se od predmeta u kojima su skriveni drugi predmeti. Instalaciju upotpunjava video koji prikazuje postupke skrivanja. Instalaciju možemo smatrati zbirkom koja dokumentira supkulturne tehnike kojima su se ljudi služili kako bi preživjeli teške ekonomske uvjete i represivan Ceausescuov režim. Istovremeno nam pokazuje kako informacije mijenjaju percepciju, dodaju nevidljivi sloj, nemilu auru, drugačije značenje, inače neutralnim predmetima.

Installation for Istanbul (Travelling secrets), made in 1995, deals with historical smuggling tricks between Romania and Hungary, consisting of objects in which other objects are hidden. A videotape completes the installation, revealing the hiding processes. The installation can be seen as a collection documenting sub-cultural techniques, which people used in order to survive the harsh economical conditions and repression during Ceausescu’s regime. At the same time it is demonstrating how information alter perception, adding an invisible layer, an ungraceful aura, an odd significance to the otherwise neutral objects.
