Master Devis Grebu honoured me greatly by opening my exhibition AFTER ZĂERCS @Signum Gallery in Bucharest:

EN: … she is a sort of locomotive, a locomotive that doesn’t crush the truck or the barriers when they meet, but who simply — I would say– plants flowers behind. She is multiple, has no limits, has this curiosity of the genius to insert, to intervene in all areas, in all matters … and succeeds, and does them very well, in my opinion even better: out of the ordinary. I am so happy for her evolution. It was 11 years ago that we met for the first time. (…) This exhibition is a more special exhibition, since it also has its humor, having been started out of a language problem …… ever since her childhood.

She uses many different materials here, which she either combines or suggests. In the paintings that she does with oil or acrylic on canvas she still suggests combinations of diverse materials. I do not think that one can define her, figurative, surrealist, abstract? I look at her paintings and they could be abstract, but also surrealist or figurative. Because you discover – if you want — in each of the paintings elements that are specific to these categories. I think this is actually a quality. Better yet, not to be integrated under a specific dome. Neither I, in what I do, I don’t think that I could fall under a certain (…) and maybe I an subjective because I see in her the same ambitions, the same desires.

IN-TRIGÂ : AT HOME EVERYWHERE

EN:

Through the In-Trigâ: AT HOME EVERYWHERE video-performance (see The Small In-Trigâ Dictionary) I try to redefine my territory and my identity, assuming a status on the border between public and private, in the context of ongoing social political influences over my personal life. The promenade in which car I carry my zăercs is a propagation of the self in constant movement: between aesthetic and social, between the organic and the artificial, between life and death, between nature and culture, between art and everyday life. The First In-trigâ presents through the form of a funeral march the simplest, most common and recurrent activity in my life: the daily walk with my dog, in the fields near the village where I have my studio.

A FILM

Presumable script

 

M: Sort of …. there … I think these bodies are rather events than objects, which I find a little disconcerting. This implies death.

M: It is precisely the act of mental reconstruction of an event, this is a post conflict situation. This is the monstrosity sparing itself a pause. Just because there are thoughts and feelings on which we cannot discuss, or which would be so trivialized by word and figuration … it does not mean they do not exist, right? Continue reading

NE-FINISAT / UN-FINISHED

Colony Art Gallery

Colony Art (https://artasicoloniale.wordpress.com/) presented the exhibition “UN-FINISHED” – artists Maia Oprea (www.maiaoprea.ro) and Matei Enric (http://matei-enric.blogspot.ro/). 

Thoughts, feelings, filtered, husked and conceptualised moods are linked together in the compositions of Maia Oprea and Matei Enric. All this introspective journey is translated into unconventional means, on experimental media. “Un-finished” defines a phase, a transition from the studio of study to the one of stage.

LINING

Lining – installation performance – Architecture School of Strasbourg, France

ENGLISH

“Lining” is a group work based mainly on one of my old projects, “Bucharest, Roadblock”, a journey in which I used transparent tape, pasting through public and private spaces as well. This time too, the tape is used to make a kind of drawing in space, a drawing that seeks light strokes or which allows light to be traced.  Continue reading
