On the left side you can see unspoken questions from the initial period, on the right, in formol, an unborn hope, the contorted exhibit from here is the artist's sexuality, we past the rainbows zone, be careful not to stain yourself, we got to the dreams crushed by the reality, don't be shy, step over, that's the point of the installation and above there were, floating, one ton of charmed potatoes, not magical enough to save the artist from heart attack. We thank you for coming and we can not wait for you to return to the Museum of An Ordinary Man.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In April 2021, the group has 5.600 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
