BucharestIulian Bisericaru: Zoom In, Zoom Out
Opening and book launch: Wednesday 25 May, 7pm
Curator: Marie Maertens
Guest sound artist: Romain Poirier
Anca Poterașu Gallery presents Zoom In, Zoom Out, an exhibition of works by Iulian Bisericaru (b. 1987, Sibiu). Curated by Marie Maertens, it features a unique collaboration with guest artist, composer Romain Poirier.
”For his new solo show at Anca Poterasu Gallery, Iulian Bisericaru delves into his reflection on nature and ecology, connected to the expanding urbanism and the ghosts of the post-industrial. After certain ideological dogmas and fanatic capitalism, how can nature reclaim its rights? What is the rapport between landscape and culture after Romanticism? The painter observes, creates compositions, reproduces, imagines, sublimates… proposing overviewing perspectives, idealised or less so, before zooming in to transform the vegetation into an infinite subject, to then let go and farther away from it yet again…
Without any imposed script, the works from the show are accompanied by a sound piece created by French producer and composer Romain Poirier. In the framework of the Niamor project he composed, We Are the Rest of Mankind… The musician usually works with filmmakers and it is now for the first time that he establishes a rapport between his work and painting, thus creating a minimalist and intense sound-piece, that continuously evolves towards the psychedelic. ” – fragment from the curatorial text by Marie Maertens
On the occasion of the opening, we invite you to the official launch of Iulian Bisericaru’s first artist book, titled “Fantastic Construction or Productive Fantasy” [Construcție fantastique ou fantezie productive] with texts by Liviana Dan, Marie Martens and Cristina Stoenescu, design by Eduard Constantin.
