Two forms of self-portrait and art accessible to the public, in April at the Art Cell

April brings in the little unconventional gallery The Art Cell, from B-dul Carol no. 53, two exhibitions that explore different forms of self-portrait – the perspective towards the organic interior, through the colors that gain volume, from The thread of lifeof Aurelia Chiru and the outer one, alienated, detached from Ghosts of my dreams, by Alexandru Răduță. In parallel, the project Art Machinesupported by the Art Cell and Carol 53continues to raise funds for refugees from Ukraine, making available in an accessible format works by 16 Ukrainian artists, until April 18, at Cărturești Parklake.

Between April 9 and 23, Aurelia Chiru exhibits in the Art Cell a series of works that are part of the personal project started in 2018, Organic self-portrait, which developed from the figurative style as a need to get out of the two-dimensional. As a result of experimenting with acrylic by creating sculptural, volumetric shapes, the artist came to use the object, film, installation and performance in order to convey what she intends.

“It is a process of sublimation that occurred as a result of a mechanism of protection of the psyche by transforming tension into creation, using a language of the senses in which I tried to communicate and render biographical aspects by combining elements and exploring the sensory qualities of colors. forms and materials, the message being the main purpose in the idea that it can be heard and understood.

For me, art is a platform for emotion and mental dialogue. The activity of research and artistic creation means the assimilation of the stages that defined the history of art and the transmission of emotion through its own filter of thinking and experimentation, a challenge that can open the way to a language that is sincere and reflects the creative context.

The art scene must remain a friendly territory for the exchange of emotion between artists and spectators, without strategies that diminish the creative momentum and authenticity, “says the artist.

Aurelia Chiru is from Bucharest and graduated from the National University of Arts in Bucharest, bachelor’s and master’s degree, Painting department, 2020-2021 class.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on April 9, starting with 18:00, in the location of the gallery from B-dul Carol at no. 53.

And from April 23rd to May 7th, you will be able to see the exhibition of the artist Alexandru Răduță, Ghosts of my dreams, which proposes an expression of the state of alienation that encompasses, in fact, his entire work.

“This condition is expressed in two temperatures: hot and cold. The singular characters in the composition are a form of self-portrait. Their anthropomorphic rendering is a symbol of depersonalization. The frame around the characters acts as a window, representing the transition between two worlds. It is about the transition from the real to the amorphous, to the dream. Where the dream is in fact a metaphor for dissociation “, says Alexandru.

Alexandru-Ștefan Răduță is a visual artist based in Bucharest. His work revolves around the theme of alienation. Stylistic features include: anthropomorphic characters, synthesis of forms, compositional tension, dreamlike atmosphere. Media: painting, collage, digital art, drawing, linocut.

Until April 18, Art Machine, a project initiated by the artistic group Pink pill, with the support of the Art Cell and Carol 53, which held the collective exhibition Bombs and People in March. Artists united against the war, makes available to the public original works by 16 Ukrainian artists. These can be purchased from the vending machine located in Bucharest, in Cărturești Parklake and the proceeds are directed entirely to support vulnerable families in Ukraine, for which the Art Cell and Carol 53 collect and send donations.

Artiști: Katia Didyk, Daria Polishchuk, Masha Foya, Oleg Bilyi, Velychev Ievgen, Anna Ivanenko, Natalia Lisova, Alevtina Kakhidze, Oksana Drachkovska, Oleksandr Grekhov, Olia Fedorova, Oleksandra Ruth, Max Moshkovsky, Mytrii Chkolnyi, Sasha Degtyarenko, Iryna Degtyarenko.

The Art Machine project encourages the healthy consumption of art by bringing artists into direct contact with the general public. Art Machine creates a unique opportunity to purchase original works of art, while providing exposure and financial support to the artists involved in the process. We believe that art must be progressive, but at the same time personal and accessible.

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 audience, who are not used to participating in openings and thus, because there is no physical and temporal barrier between the object of art and the viewer, a free, direct and non-conformist dialogue is created.

gallery supports contemporary creation in the thematic areas of the visual arts and encourages the development of new forms of artistic expression accessible at any time to street audiences. With a presence of ~ 4 years (2017 – 2021) on the art scene in Bucharest, the Art Cell held ~ 70 events (exhibitions, performances, live) and influenced the way of perception regarding the exhibition of objects or artistic acts in front of the public.
