AT THE AUTHOR`S REQUEST, SCULPTOR MARIA SICOIE CREATED 100 TINY PORCELAIN BUSTS BARING THE MUIAN EFFIGY AND EXHIBITED DURING THE OPENING LINED UP ON A WOODEN TABLE AND AWAITING TO BE SMASHED BY THE PUBLIC WITH A LARGE IRON VISE, REMINISCENT OF THE DEATH-THREATS AND INSTIGATION TO VIOLENCE PERPETRATED AND PROMOTED BY THE MEDIA INVOLVED IN THE 2012 MUIAN SCANDAL, BUT ALSO AS A MEANS OF CHANNELING PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR AND FRUSTRATIONS LINKED TO THE CURRENT EXHIBITION. IRONICALLY, THE AUTHOR WAS EXECUTED IN EFFIGY ONLY BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, WITH THOSE PRESENT AT THE OPENING AS BOTH EXHIBITS AND VISITORS COWERING FROM SUCH AKNOWLEDGED MANIFESTATION. VIOLENT REACTIONS TO THE OPENING WERE FORMULATED EITHER FROM THE COMFORT OF ANONIMITY, OR FROM UNDER THE SHIELD OF COLLECTIVE AUTHORSHIP AND TABLOID ”FREEDOM OF SPEECH”, AS WAS (AGAIN) THE CASE OF ”BIHOREANUL” LOCAL NEWSPAPER. THE SPINELESSNESS OF THOSE TOO AFRAID TO SMASH THE AUTHOR`S PORCELAIN HEAD AFTER BEING PUBLICLY INSULTED AND EXHIBITED AS PORNOGRAPHY FURTHER PROVES THE RELEVANCE OF MUIAN`S PROBLEMATIZATION OF AKNOWLEDGEMENT IN ROMANIAN PUBLIC SPEECH AND INTELLIGENTSIA.
