Kanal Centre Pompidou: thoughts on the exhibitions of May 2019

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Current exhibitions at Kanal Centre Pompidou got me thinking: how far should we go with exhibiting human pain, sufferance? What’s an appropriate context to do that and what not? Can the contemporary art establishment actually DO something to support our collective issues, such as homelessness? I would hope so! Thank you for watching!

I went to see the “latest” Caravaggio: “Judith and Holopherne” and it was pretty amazing

Posted by on / 0 Comments

A couple of years ago, in 2014 to be precise, a medieval painting was found in an attic and Toulouse, and after specialists in medieval paintings (most notably Éric Turpin) have analysed it in depth they decided: it’s a Caravaggio, one of the few (around 60 in the entire world), painted around 1607.

Gherasim Luca și depășirea suprarealismului

Posted by on / 0 Comments

„Poezia fără limbă, revoluția fără persoane, iubirea fără sfârșit” (Gherasim Luca, înscris pe „Cuba Colectiva” Havana, 1967) Gherasim Luca este inventatorul unui limbaj poetic și, în același timp program existențial, inseparabil de opera sa. Adesea s-a vorbit de ontopoezie, pentru că pentru Luca poezia, arta și viața au fost una, au format un tot inseparabil. A...

I mirror with Vivian Maier: thoughts on the exhibition at Les Douches La Galerie

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Les Douches La Galerie is currently hosting a  Vivian Maier Exhibition “The Color Works”, which also includes many black & white photographs. Of course, her work is great but the exhibition concept is quite simplistic, the work is not at all contextualised and it’s presented a bit cramped. It all has an air of a desire...

The eyes, chico, the eyes of Egon Schiele – Exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton Paris

Posted by on / 0 Comments

In image theory studies we often talk about “what do images want?”, about a secret life of an image, about how a detail can overturn an entire painting or how the punctum grabs our gaze and arrests it, binds it to a certain “je ne sais quoi” of the image.

Dinspre prezentul fără un domiciliu fix privesc înspre trecut. Notițe despre Sezonul Franța-România în ianuarie.

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Contextualizare? În tranziție, nomazi digitali, fără domiciliu fix, globe trotteri, pasageri. În sens larg, metafizic, toți suntem trecători prin viață, prin locuri, prin situații și tot în trecere mă aflu și eu la Paris, cu o bursă Erasmus la Paris Diderot. Întorcându-ne către cotidian, acest lucru îmi oferă un domiciliu fix, în sens administrativ și...
