Jokes with a social background in the newest exhibition at the Art Cell

Thursday, September 8, from 7:00 p.m., in the aquarium-space in B-dul Carol no. 53 the opening of the exhibition will take place Cavalry Delivery of the young artist Emanuel Matei, curated by Raluca Ilaria Demetrescu. The exhibition opens the discussion about a playful revolt, is the artist’s second solo event and can be seen until September 24, at any time.

“Matei Emanuel is a knight who wears a modern-day armor and launches himself forcefully on the scene of Romanian contemporary art tournaments. Emerging artist with an original, recognizable vision, satirizes our consumerism and holds up to the world a mirror in which the arsenal of a medieval knight and the aesthetics of today’s serial products are reflected through overlaps. Basically what is new under the sun and clouds of history? Have human behaviors evolved along this chronological and historical path, or do we have similar things?! His hybrid creations, from a visual point of view, lie between sculpture and design, with no purpose other than artistic, and carry a moralizing role on the morals of today’s (universal?) society.

Through the creative intervention of the artist, the space of the Art Cell becomes a diorama in an imaginary history museum, where the present sculptures are born from hijacked common objects, oversized food, soft means of transport ridden by a very important fighter. A bag used for food delivery playfully transforms into a sword marked with “heraldic” symbols, a true personalized weapon of the fighting knight (with ideas). The knight artist aims to deliver to us through his art, jokes with social substratum and images of ironic battle redirected to the world.”, Raluca Ilaria Demetrescucurator of the exhibition.

Born in 2001 in Bucharest, Matei Emanuel is a 3rd year student at UNARTE, Sculpture. Cavalry Delivery from Celula de Artă is his second solo event, the first – Matei Știrbei takes place at Galeria Știrbei 47. He participates in the exhibitions: Art in Progress 2 – The Institute, Bombs and people. Artists united against the war – Carol 53, Flowers and people. Homo homini flos est – Contemporary Hair Space, When art meets religion – Art Safe, Lust is in the Air – The Institute

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 is not used to participating in openings and thus, because there is no longer a physical and temporal barrier 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.
