"Nanca regularly resorts to working with Revolution symbols and the communist era. In his work If you give it to me I give it to you designed for the Art for Fun exhibition he is ironic about the rapid transformation of communist symbols after the fall of the regime. Over the last few years these symbols have gone on from being untouchable to icons of pop culture which have been repeatedly printed on t-shirts, caps and mugs. Nanca combines physics and two symbols in his installation: the hammer and sickle and the Frisbee, - an American leisure symbol-. Several red Frisbees with a hammer and a sickle in relief are at public's disposal to be used in the exhibition room."
