In the last half of June, the Art Cell team presents to the public two exhibitions springing from self-discovery, introspection and anchoring in the surrounding world. Thus, until July 9, at the Art Cell (B-dul Carol no. 53), it will be possible to see the exhibition love fatithe first personal exhibition of the young artist Denis Nanciu, curated by Raluca Ilaria Demetrescu and until July 14, at Kulterra Gallery (Str. Știrbey Vodă no. 104 – 106) Do animals have souls?the exhibition of the emerging artist Adelina Laura Cîmpeanu.
Twenty-three thoughts or questions about the world and its meanings, in twenty-three figures
For the first personal exhibition, which will have the opening on June 20, from 19:00, Denis Nanciu has chosen to start with a staging populated by beings-thoughts in the showcase gallery The Art Cell from the Carol 53 cultural hub.
Twenty-three figures, twenty-three thoughts or twenty-three questions about the world and its meanings, one for each demon or angel that haunts or visits the artist. For every year of his life until now and until Denis has settled his accounts with the world, another ghost will appear every year, year after year, year after year and until the end of infinity. But after infinity? Another infinity follows. Amor fati is a Latin expression that refers to the love of destiny as a principle or one’s own destiny.
Denis is calm and with the attention springing from this calmness he makes a continuous exercise of introspection, without pause, without getting tired. This exercise in self-observation is by no means a neuro-asthenic one, but rather puts the things of personal life in a plunging or ascending perspective, depending on the external factors that also intervene in this act (of) life and the mood of each one. . Angel or demon? “There is hope in everything,” the artist tells us, in the flower with the focus of light on it, the wing of the angel raised or the light of the gardener who traverses the scene, the forest, life, the Milky Way, the infinity of self-destiny.
Denis Nanciu, born in Nana, Călărași County, in 1999, is a first year Master student at UNARTE Bucharest, in the Ceramics, Glass, Metal section. He participates in several exhibitions in the country and abroad, makes interior design objects from metal and glass that are in private collections and his works appear in several catalogs and art albums. In issue 46/2022 he illustrates with drawings the DOR magazine.
The soul of the creations around us, captured on canvas
“Do animals have souls?” he was born in a period of discovery of the artist’s own body and self. The change in lifestyle towards veganism has pushed us to the simple questions that each of us has asked ourselves at some point in our lives. As humans, we are not alone on this earth, we are surrounded by the most important creations. We enjoy their love and attention every day, we receive their energy and offer ours in return. How can we be surprised whether or not these beings have a soul? By suggesting and fully synthesizing the animals she stylizes by using a few features, canceling the space and asserting the supremacy of their bodies, the artist places the figures on the entire surface of the canvas, taking into account the chromatic play of flattened space, organized by spontaneity defining elements. The works talk about the artist’s attitude towards one of the most beloved questions – what do you think, animals have a soul?
Having a colorful past, Adelina Laura Cîmpeanu stands out for her bold attempt to add color to her compositions, but the artist’s starting point is in the raw expression of generating shapes.
Adelina Laura Cîmpeanu is an emerging artist who over time has distinguished herself through the various subjects and work environments she has used in her works. She graduated from the National University of Arts in Bucharest, painting department, but due to the desire to deepen her studies, she continued with her master’s degree at the same university. Over the years, she has addressed several topics such as: transcendence, the unpredictable future, the Romanian peasants and the list goes on, all of which are closely related to the artist’s personal life. The traditional painting environments were useful to him, including in the construction of some installations, as well as in the virtual environment.
The exhibition continues the program Feat. Kulterra, an exponent of the Kulterra Gallery philosophy: openness and dialogue marked by curiosity and a spirit of adventure. Feat. Kulterra is an open door, it is a showcase dedicated to guests; the corridor leading to the Kulterra Art Store which will host “visiting art”, both proposed by other galleries and by artists directly. The hallway windows facing the courtyard will have a new face every month, drawing the attention of visitors to artists who are not necessarily represented by Kulterra Gallery, on the contrary. Also, other art galleries will be able to leave their own spaces, “migrating” symbolically, selectively and temporarily in the showcases dedicated to the project.
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.
The 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 for street audiences. With a presence of ~ 5 years (2017 – 2022) on the art scene in Bucharest, the Art Cell has supported over 100 events (exhibitions, performances, live shows) and has influenced the way of perception regarding the exhibition of objects or artistic acts in front of the public.
