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.

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.

Comment prendre possession de l’espace et de quelle façon pourrait-on le faire ?

 

http://www.maiaoprea.ro/fr/projets/archive/2013/gaspillage-premiere-scene

“Trans / figuration” est une sorte de mise en capsule dutemps, par la prise de conscience très aiguë de son passage, se précisant comme unelongue attente: que du nouveau soit produit à partir de ce que quotidiennement on jette, que puis j’inventorie, je stocke et je traitedans un processus que j’imagine constant et à flux continu. C’est juste en prenant conscience du temps qui coule que je prends possession de l’espace qui m’entoure, espace que je fait habiter par des résidus temporels sous différentes formes.
