Looking at the works of the Moldova based contemporary artists or observing the exhibitions presented by Moldovan contemporary art institutions we can see a tendency of the documentation of present context. The gesture of documentation goes beyond mere capturing the here and now or recording a phenomenon. The artists observe, discover and investigate the subject. While trying to define their relation to it, they assign their own position and reflect on those feelings, sensations and memories that are triggered by knowing the subject. Using documentation as an artistic practice they make an attempt to grasp the process of getting acquainted with the subject. By documenting it they try to translate, interpret and shape the result of their investigation and to delineate their relations to the subject.

The exhibition entitled Capturing the moment presents different artistic documentations of the same subject: the Republic of Moldova, a country situated on the borderline of Eastern Europe and Russia. Through the works the silhouette of this peculiar country appears, their inhabitants start to take shape, the ambiance of the place surrounds us, and we get an insight into its present and recent past. On the other hand, the works can be regarded as the artists’ personal statements, which talk about their relation and longer or shorter acquaintance to Moldova.
