The second half of September brings two new exhibitions in the unconventional spaces of The Art Cell – on September 18, at the Vertical Gallery by Celula de Artă, hosted by Random Space (Str. Popa Petre no. 21), the opening will take place Lilith – Black Moon, with the undergraduate work of the young artist Alexandra Vlase and on September 24, at the Art Cell in B-dul Carol no. 53 Alex Manea brings V.I.D. (Very Important Dates)a study of the moments that shaped history.
Alexandra Vlase is the man who dedicated the last three years to documenting decorative art, this year graduating from the bachelor’s program at the National University of Arts in Bucharest, going to start his master’s degree in the same field. Her passion for aesthetics, for what is beautiful and pleasing to the eye, influenced her in choosing Fashion Design for her career, over time having several group exhibitions and fashion projects. Today, it operates in an educational and creative setting, encouraging people to follow their dreams.
Lilith – Black Moon is the representative outfit of her undergraduate work entitled “HALA”, an outfit inspired by the astronomical body, the Moon. The concept is based on what the Moon represents astrologically and what it conveys through the most hidden emotions of our soul: mystery, fantasy, sensitivity, desire and love. In astrology, the Sun represents the spirit, while the Moon represents the physical and emotional body, a deep and active feeling in the darkness of the night, a moment that also represents our artist. Lilith represents the initiation of a new chapter in our lives. Volume, textures are the most predominant in his works, and the accessories are specific to Luna.
“History is important: every day, we are reminded of the power of the past to shape both our lives and the society we live in, whether it is family, nation, culture, religion or other historically constituted community. The way we understand history influences our present and the way we see the world and affects the way we understand reality and our own future. A proper understanding of how history shapes the present and future is essential to engaging and understanding the world around us. “, Alex Maneaartist.
“VID” seeks to create an unbiased list that touches upon the most influential and major events in world history, those that have shaped the world more than any other. There are moments in history that we can’t help but look back on and note that they signaled a sea change in the way we live, work, think, and even view others. Yes, there are many more moments that could be mentioned, but these 15 are watershed moments when nothing that followed was ever the same. Even if most of the events presented are known to the public only from historical accounts and not directly experienced, the materials and models used to create the works are recognizable and every viewer can identify with at least one of them. Through this unusual association, the artist tries to expose the participant to a kind of indirect experience, to an emotion triggered in the viewer’s mental and affective, thus emphasizing these elements and transferring the experience of recognizing tangible notions to individual identification with a certain event intentionally associated with an element recognizable with the role of triggering this action.
Resonating with the traces of memory impregnated in found materials, Alex Manea works with various objects in the spirit of arte povera and combines these materials with a minimalist aesthetic objective. Manea gives priority to the concept in relation to the formal concerns and thus capitalizes his plastic strategies and technical methods in the service of the proposed theme. While his practice is based on ideas, his resulting body of work represents a seamless marriage of form and function.
His conceptual art practice is committed to confronting powerful socio-political and cultural subjects and presenting them in intriguing and aesthetically compelling forms. Each work is intended to push the viewer to reaction and reflection on his position in relation to the artwork and the world.
The Art Cell is represented by a space with street opening, which aims to allow the works to escape from the classic space of the gallery to interact with a new public, which does not usually participate in the openings and thus, because there is no longer a barrier physical and temporal between the art object and the viewer, a free, direct and nonconformist dialogue is created.
Gallery supports contemporary creation in the thematic areas of visual arts and encourages the development of new forms of artistic expression accessible at any time to the street public. With a presence of ~ 5 years (2017 – 2022) on the Bucharest art scene, the Art Cell has supported over 120 events (exhibitions, performances, live shows) and has influenced the way of perception regarding the display of objects or artistic acts in front of the public.
