Metropolis M wrote about his final collection: “the presentations of Raluca Croitoru and Mat Do are more economical, and for that reason alone attract more attention. (…) Mat Do shows a collection of ready-mades here: hat stands with a box of tissues on one of them, in which the Kappa logo is punched manually in each individual tissue. A small sculpture has been placed underneath. ”
