DURING THE 2012 MEDIA SCANDAL, A LARGE NUMBER OF PERSONALLY AIMED HARASSMENT AND SLANDER (SOMETIMES EVEN ATTEMPTED BLACKMAIL) BY THE JOURNALISTS INVOLVED WOULD REVOLVE AROUND SPECULATION OF THE AUTHOR`S (AND HIS FAMILY`S) PERSONAL WEALTH. PARTLY, TRYING TO ARTIFICIALLY CREATE SOCIAL TENSIONS, PARTLY TRYING TO FORCE SHADY TRANSACTIONS IN EXCHANGE FOR WHAT THEY THOUGHT WOULD BE THE AUTHOR`S DESIRE OF DISCRETION, MOST JOURNALISTS PROMINENTLY MENTIONED MONEY IN THEIR RENDITION OF THE AUTHOR`S ”PORTRAIT”.WHILE SOME, LIKE TV HOST OCTAVIAN HARAGOȘ, IMPLIED LARGE SCALE CRIMINAL ACTIVITY FOR THE GIVEN SUM OF 1000 LEI (ROUGHLY 250 EUROS), OTHERS SUCH AS ADRIANA TOTOREAN, DEVELOPED AN UNHEALTHY OBSESSION TOWARDS THE AUTHOR`S FAMILY, RUNNING CAMPAIGNS AGAINST HIM AND HIS RELATIVES IN WHAT ONE MAY INTERPRET AS ATTEMPTED EXTORTION. IT IS EXCLUSIVELY DUE TO SUCH EXCESS (”PAVLOVIAN DROOLING”) ON BEHALF THE MEDIA THAT MUIAN CAME INTO EXISTENCE, IN TURN GENERATING THE MOST EXTENSIVE INADVERTENT PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN LOCAL MEDIA WAS MANIPULATED TO RUN IN RECENT HISTORY. AT THE CONCLUSION OF THIS STAGE, THE AUTHOR SEES FIT TO REWARD ALL THOSE INVOLVED FOR THEIR EFFORT, PROVIDING THEM WITH THE OFFICIAL FEES PAID IN 2012 FOR SUCH ””WORK”. 50 LEI (10 EUROS) FOR A SLANDER ARTICLE, 100 (25 EUROS) FOR AN ”INTERVIEW”, 200 (50 EUROS) FOR A ”TV SHOW”; EFFIGIES ARE USED TO CONNECT EACH AUTHOR TO HIS OR HER REWARD AND EXPOSE THEIR STAKES FOR THE POUND OF FLESH THEY MUST NOW RELINQUISH.
ONE PARTICULAR INCIDENT WAS LOCAL STATE-RUN GALLERY EMPLOYEE OVIDIU HORAȚIU GUI`S REMARK I KNOW HOW MANY COCKS YOU SUCKED ADDRESSED TO THE AUTHOR DURING HIS VISIT AT SAID GALLERY. THE TAPING OF THIS REMARK CAUSED UPROAR WITHIN THE LOCAL ARTISTS`UNION BRANCH AND A HUMILIATING, SNIVELING APOLOGY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED GENTLEMEN TAPED BY THE CURATOR. DESPITE PUBLIC GUARANTEE, NO PUNITIVE MEASURES WERE TAKEN BY UNION STAFF AGAINST MR GUI. IT WAS THEREFORE WITH LITTLE RELUCTANCE THAT THE AUTHOR PURCHASED WORKS FROM MR GUI AND HIS SUPERIORS, PUBLICLY DESTROYED THEM AND ILL SOON RESELL THEM AT HALF THE PURCHASE PRICE (SO AS TO PERMANENTLY DEVALUE THEM). THE INSTALLATION CONSISTS OF 6 MOLDS OF THE AUTHOR`S ERECT PENIS, CAST IN GLASS CANDY AND COMPRISING A 500 LEI BILL EACH (125 EUROS), THE SUM PAID FOR MR GUI`S WORKS. THE AUTHOR IS PREPARED TO DONATE THIS INSTALLATION TO MR GUI AND HIS EMPLOYERS, ON CONDITION THEY PUBLICLY ACKNOWLEDGE ITS RECEPTION. MISCELLANEOUSLY, THE ROMANIAN WORD ”MUIAN”, MEANING FACE, DERIVES FROM ”MUIA” (MEANING THE SAME), WHICH HAS RECENTLY EVOLVED INTO ”FELLATIO”; THE IDIOM ”A DA O MUIE” REFERS TO THE ACT OF FELLATIO FROM THE GIVING PARTNER`S PERSPECTIVE, BUT CONTEMPORARY SLANG ALSO GRANTS IT THE MEANING ”TO FOOL, TO TRICK SOMEONE”.
