the freedom of knowledge and the market value, the demands of the Nouveau Riche
and the challenges and scepticism of the New Poor.
The work selected for ‘End of Empires’ are
snapshots of this new reality and its effects on people and societies.
freedom and identity issues are brought to the fore by Radu Belcin’s recent paintings.The childhood in the consumer
society is the focus of the Francisc
Chiuariu’s new series titled ”Forever Ikea”. Realist and sensitive, Flavia Pitiș works with close-up
childish gestures and habits of the adults. Collective character is ”mirroring”
the mass production in Dragoș Burlacu’s
new oil paintings on steel metal. Aurel
Tar’s ”Wonderful Collapse” allegorical multiple panels paintings evoke the
great civilization of the Greek European antiquity, staged now under the
bailout of the financial crises.
The artworks and the artists from the ”End
of Empires” exhibition are examples for the rising of the emerging art markets
from the Eastern Europe.
The exhibition was realized in
cooperation with Năsui Private Collection & Gallery.
