STACKING/ STIVUIRE @ Annart Gallery 2016

[EN] Following the receipt of the AnnArt Prize that the AnnArt Foundation offers to young artists, starting from 2011, in September 2016 took place the exhibition STACKING, curated by Raluca Băloiu, which comprised a series of works, from painting to the installation-object – created over the years 2015, 2016. The viewer meets with a complex network of pieces of an unusual archive, composed of objects built on media such as canvas, cardboard and tablets; By the composition of the latter (recycled paper, vegetable dust and ashes) the artist Maia Ştefana Oprea defines the approach of recovering a flow of personal life, with openness to the collective horizon, interconnected and impermanent.

Privitorul se întâlneşte cu o reţea complexă de piese ale unei arhive insolite, compuse din obiecte construite pe suporturi precum pânză, carton şi tăbliţe; prin compoziţia acestora din urmă (hârtie reciclată, praf vegetal şi cenuşă) artista Maia Ștefana Oprea îşi defineşte abordarea recuperării unui flux al vieţii personale, cu deschidere către orizontul colectiv, interconectat şi impermanent.

‘COME AND LOOK. I(t) kicked the bucket. I(t)’M lying there, totally snuffed!’ – part 2

Within the installation ‘COME AND LOOK. I(t) kicked the bucket. I(t)’M lying there, totally snuffed!’, the public was invited to take one zăerc (What is a zăerc?) from the installation, in order to later photograph it its the new space (public space, inside the apartment, uncertain space, selfie with the zăerc, etc.).

Below are the photos received from the public and exposed as part of the installation and within the exhibition “What About Gregor Samsa” @ Galeria Anca Poterașu, Bucharest. MANY THANKS to all the participants !

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

How does she move ?

Reading Alberto Giacometti’s book of notes “About the Irrational Knowledge of the Object”, I felt more and more the need to transform a sculpture into one active entity. Continue reading
