    Zsolt Berszan - Remains

    10 Sep 2021 – 30 Oct 2021

    Supported by Stiftungkunstfonds thru NeuStartKultur The extensive solo show “Remains” signed by Zsolt Berszán, presents the artist’s creation of the last seven years – the period of 2014—2021 – and offers an exhaustive body of work produced across many media, from drawing on canvas and metal sheets to oversized paintings on canvas, and large two to three-dimensional sculptures made from silicone, metal and mixed media. His subject matter consists of an exploration of the most hidden fantasies of violence and destruction. The works arise from violent fragmentations and deconstructions of the composition, in which deformed masses and strange structures appear that describe a fluid, absorbent, organic materiality. Zsolt Berszán's creation is marked by the idea of dissolution, of fragmented dead bodies that can be perceived just as remains. The artist suggests the body, hardly perceptible in the economy of the artwork, as a macabre game of twists, writhing, arches and torn fragments. It is a material representation of the remains of an absent body. Zsolt Berszán is not interested in the individual itself but in the human remains that become subjects in themselves. The representation of the fragments, the truncated bodies, of the remains, draw traces interpreted in this context, not solely as organic materials, but also as material forms testifying the a priori existence of those people. The exhibition it is conceived around three distinctive series: “Residuum”, “Dissecting the Unknown” and “Remains of the Remains”. The viewer is invited to visit the exhibition through presentational 3D online viewing room technology. The online exhibition “Remains” gathers all the artworks that will be part of an extensive catalogue published by Kerber Verlag, scheduled to be issued in November 2021. A small fraction of which will be also presented in an offline exhibition. Curator: Diana Dochia, PhD

    Mythical Flesh

    21 Apr 2021 – 26 Jun 2021

    Alexandru Rădvan Mythical Flesh 21st April – 26th June 2021 Curators: Mark Gisbourne and Diana Dochia The extensive solo show ‘Mythical Flesh’ signed by Alexandru Rădvan presents the artist’s creation of the last seven years – the period 2014—2021 – and offers an exhaustive body of work produced across many media, from drawing on paper and various textiles, to oversized paintings on canvas, and large two to three-dimensional sculptures made from metal and/or applied resin. His subject matter and general themes consist of an intense and committed engagement with ancient myths and mythologies, usually those of a Mediterranean origin, yet personally recast into understanding and reinvigorating them anew in the current context. Alexandru Rădvan thinks through subject themes that have a starting point in those richly fascinating mythological characters like Hercules, Prometheus, Narcissus, or narrative myths such as Daphne and Apollo and Pygmalion and Galatea. The extended groups of work each represent a defined series and subject matter, each with a distinctive title that collectively provides a panorama of his wider artistic conceptualizations. The exhibition in grouped around seven distinctive thematic chapters: ‘On Rituals and Sun’, ‘Meridional’, ‘Pygmalion’, ‘Strange Women’, ‘Apollo & Daphne’, ‘Hercules’, and ‘Self-portrait’. The viewer is warmly invited to visit the exhibition through presentational 3D online viewing room technology. The online exhibition ‘Mythical Flesh’ presents all the artworks that will be offered to the public also in an extensive catalogue published by Kerber Verlag. A small fraction of which will be also presented in an offline exhibition. Supported by Stiftung Kunstfonds thru NEUSTART KULTUR German Version Alexandru Rădvan Mythical Flesh 21. April – 26. Juni 2021 Kuratoren: Mark Gisbourne und Diana Dochia Die von Alexandru Rădvan signierte umfangreiche Einzelausstellung 'Mythical Flesh' präsentiert die Kreation des Künstlers der letzten sieben Jahre - den Zeitraum 2014–2021 - und bietet ein umfassendes Werk, das in vielen Medien produziert wird, von Zeichnungen auf Papier und verschiedenen Textilien bis hin zu übergroßen Gemälde auf Leinwand und große zwei- bis dreidimensionale Skulpturen aus Metall und / oder Kunstharz. Seine Fachkenntnise und seine allgemeinen Themen bestehen aus einer intensiven und engagierten Auseinandersetzung mit alten Mythen und Mythologien, normalerweise solchen mediterranen Ursprungs, die jedoch im aktuellen Kontext persönlich neu verstanden und neu belebt werden. Alexandru Rădvan denkt über Themen nach, die einen Ausgangspunkt in diesen faszinierenden mythologischen Figuren wie Herkules, Prometheus, Narzisse oder narrativen Mythen wie Daphne und Apollo sowie Pygmalion und Galatea haben. Die erweiterten Gruppen von Kunstwerken repräsentieren jeweils eine definierte Serie und ein definiertes Thema mit jeweils einem eigenen Titel, der zusammen ein Panorama seiner breiteren künstlerischen Konzeptualisierungen bietet. Die Ausstellung gliedert sich in sieben thematische Kapitel: "Über Rituale und Sonne", "Meridional", "Pygmalion", "Seltsame Frauen", "Apollo & Daphne", "Herkules" und "Selbstporträt".

    The Year The World Stopped

    15 Dec 2020 – 15 Jan 2021

    The Year The World Stopped Life is fast; life is very busy, always needing some extra time, postponing seeing family or friends. For all these things was probably invented "tomorrow". Tomorrow we can see our loved ones, take care of ourselves, go to see “that" exhibition... One day we found out that tomorrow is no longer available. All the hurry, all the noise and indolent procrastination of "today" was shut down. From that day on, everybody experienced silence, life at a slow pace. We had to learn how to live in the space we called home without necessarily feeling it as such; we had to pay attention to the small gestures. Maybe we experienced mixed feelings about the people we had to live with. All the other men and women seemed so far away, since everyone was a sort of prisoner of one's house. The city was quiet. Nights were silent. Walking in the empty streets had something of a slightly illegal and softly dangerous situation. Air felt different, sun felt different, the little green leaves, the birds, everything that was outside felt and looked different to us, the dominant specie of the planet, forced into confinement by an invisible threat. For a short time we valued every breath of fresh air and every step took in the sun and mare scenarios about how people will change after this experience. A bit later we realized the truth: fortunately, people will never change. Alexandru Rădvan, artist

    Unfinished Piece in a Defined Frame

    18 Nov 2020 – 12 Dec 2020

    The exhibition "Unfinished Piece in a Defined Frame" signed by Raluca Arnăutu proposes to visitors a foray into the world of collage through a series of over 20 works created between 2019-2020 and brought to the public for the first time. "Unfinished Piece in a Defined Frame" continues in a sense the artist's search for the construction and deconstruction of the image in the collages developed in the personal project "Deconstruction" exhibited in 2018 in Budapest. In the new series of collages, the artist uses a plenitude of various materials, shapes and readymade objects, through which, the characters taking over the exhibition space of the gallery, come to life. The artist builds characters, as in a play by Eugen Ionescu, the works being densely structured within a temporary time frame. The association of words, materials of various textures, small plastic objects - dice, wheels, lego pieces - creates juxtapositions in which the text merges with the image emphasizing the value of the created compositions. Raluca Arnăutu has developed in her artistic projects, her own language of communication with the viewer, revealing authentic ways of expression and analysis. Her characters carry on mute dialogues and invent possible worlds, in a world lacking logic and hope. The dream is the one that sets in motion the artist's imagination and sensitivity.

    Cells

    15 Oct 2020 – 06 Nov 2020

    Alina Aldea thinks her artistic projects within a conceptual-minimalistic language. The idea, the concept, the notion is what triggers the structural elements of the designs and installations. The drawings and the installations create a world in themselves; the idea no longer can be separated from the form at this stage of existence. Alina Aldea's impressive size installations are designed often in a permanent dialogue with the exhibition space. For this reason, although there are similar elements, they have infinite versatility, both as a way of presentation and as a way of interpretation. The game with the viewer, his immersion in the installation, through which he can often penetrate or interact, becomes a constant in the artist's creation. The site-specific show "Cells" was designed for the gallery space, where the visitor is invited to enter an interior flooded with cells, through video animation. The 2D animation "Cells" designed by Alina Aldea in 2020 is the result, somehow natural, of a series of drawings created in previous years. The drawings signed by Alina Aldea show the meticulousness and perfection of microscopic observation. Alina Aldea confessed about this project: “Cells” evokes the broad microscopic organic universe and brings it into a visible perspective. The images can be interpreted as a result of laboratory experiments which also imply the human observer. When arranged in a matrix, cells invoke the idea of control and systemic predetermination where random occurrences seem impossible. The choice for using spherical shapes is not accidental: the sphere is considered the form which most closely approaches perfection but is consigned naturally to approximation. “Cells” becomes the study of alienation in possible research trajectories. The drawn cells have been translated into an animated video language to emphasize and emulate the living organism.” The 2D Cells animation arranged on three monitors, running at different times, evokes the idea of a septic laboratory. Monitors/screens are substitutes for the observing and enlarging microorganisms tools. In parallel with these monitors, in the gallery space, the artist created an oversized screen made of down and feathers on which the 2D animation, the site-specific installation Cells_02, is projected. Thus, the entire space is flooded with overgrown floating cells. In the installation Cells_02, the ‘‘laboratory‘‘ becomes autonomous, the artist abandoning control and proposing the idea of a predetermined dissolution. The used materials create pretexts for new sensory associations, decontextualizing their original meaning. The cell is the basic structural, functional and biological unit of all known organisms. The cell is the smallest unit of life. Cells are named often the “building blocks of life”. The artist amplified the size precisely to create the sensation of a living organism multiplied to infinity. The site-specific installation "Cells", is designed to be discovered in solitude, in isolation. Curator: Diana Dochia

    The Unknown

    09 Sep 2020 – 09 Oct 2020

    In 1955, Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham, two American psychologists, created the concept of "unknown unknowns" in an interpretation system called the Johari window, which is a technique for interpreting human relationships, both in terms of relationships with themselves and with those around them. The unknown often describes a place, situation, or something that we do not know or understand. Philosopher Charles Handy develops the theory of the two psychologists into a concept called the Johari House with four rooms, where the first room is rendered in a part of ourselves that we see and others see too, the second room contains aspects that others see in us, but we are not aware of; the third room represents the private space that is known to us, but we hide it from the others, and the fourth room is represented by the unconscious, unknown to ourselves nor others. Throughout his creation, Zsolt Berszán probed and investigated the most abyssal pre-existing forms of the moment of the beginning, from which matter and existence were born. The artist is interested in that moment in time when conscious and the unconscious were not separated when the concept of human and animal did not yet occur. His large drawings, whether on canvas or paper, represent organic forms that emerge in unexpected situations. Biomorphic forms are stylized to the essence, becoming pure tissues or remains that are difficult to see. His paintings, often made of silicone, adhesive or oil painting, have multiple layers from which amorphous shapes arise, piercing the canvas and space. The unknown is contained in Berszán's works, especially in terms of probing the unconscious in Julia Kristeva`s interpretation, whose theory on the notion of "abjection" is highlighted in the series of works from the exhibitions "Dissecting the Unknown" (2016), " Residuum ”(2014),“ ABLackJECTION ”(2013). Imperceptibly fluid forms lie on the border between hallucination and obsession, where identity and order have been interrupted. It is a refined probe of an identity that is in dissolution.
