PRESENTING

Unstable July. Stormy weather and heat waves. Your stomach crumples up in indigestions of uncertainty. Where have three years of university gone by? Is this the end or a new beginning? Openness or closure? Renunciation or vanishing points? Take a breath. You rest for a moment (be careful now, you can’t measure it like some equivalent of a second.) You don’t really know what is going to happen. A swarm of questions runs through your mind. It’s not easy for an art graduate. The Arts, Art. Who can guarantee a sense of understanding these words anymore? Who cares about the meaning of being an artist, worse still, what does Being mean? Contemporary artist, human, individual. All of these words and their meaning are probably still buried in a boring textbook together with Heidegger and others.

The present approach consists of three visual discourses on the above-mentioned state of being. Gabriela Petre, George Bîzgu and Elena Pîrvu are recent art-school graduates, specialized in painting. The three bring forward a series of existential investigations by replacing concepts with images in an inciting mapping of affective territories.
