Iulian Bisericaru / Solo show at Bendana-Pinel Art Contemporain

Green Mirror @Bendana-Pinel Art Contemporain
Paris, France

7 September – 26 October, 2019
Artist: Iulian Bisericaru

Iulian Bisericaru has always been captivated by the relationship between architecture and nature. As an artist, he explores the tensions arising from this dichotomic union, dreaming up the most utopian projects.

The painting series “Green Mirror” feature an in-depth introspection at the heart of the relationship that humanity wants to maintain with nature. Are we prepared for an honest analysis? – scientists are already warning us that we might be close to the breaking point – an alienated society on the verge of an ecological disaster. For the ancient Greeks, the mirror was a portal to other spaces, to other worlds, but it can also appear as a truthful reflection of our reality. Through these works, Iulian Bisericaru is using his personal experience in Paris to reflect on the contradictory dynamics upon which man builds his own environment.

Adelina Ivan exhibits in the the research project ”lay me down across the lines” which brings together a series of feminist narratives that propose an orientation towards the intersectional thinking, careful to all of the conditions that determine the feminine reality. The exhibition explores the fragility of difference through personal story, emphasizes fragmentation to highlight the diversity of feminisms existing on the artistic scene. lay me down across the lines is a curatorial exercise that aims at suspending gravity in our cultural system of norms. The resulting mindset opens up the possibility for the female gaze to turn inward and formulate its own narratives.
