Marilena Preda Sânc and Sebastian Moldovan | NAG #9
The two exhibitions hosted by EASTWARDS PROSPECTUS – “but IT Got Too COLD” by Marilena Preda Sânc and Sebastian Moldovan’s “/ and / you never know what’s off”, curated by Liviana Dan – were part of this year’s White Night of the Art Galleries (NAG #9) and are open through May 24th, 2015.
Marilena Preda Sânc
In her current personal exhibition at EASTWARDS PROSPECTUS, Marilena Preda Sânc brings abstract and geometric art to a new level of experience for the viewer, with color being a focus in some of the compositions, while the ordered randomness of lines that transiently intersect with each other forms or retraces familiar and unknown objects. Perhaps the core piece of the exhibition is the strikingly simple, beautiful and profound neon work entitled ‘art is art beyond art now’.
“A state of mind, a sensation, a sound transforming into color. The color becomes a line. The line shapes narrative structures/spaces/abstractions with soul. I do not perceive abstraction as a rigor but as a symbolic metalanguage to which I have access sometimes.”
“A painter of fixed and running images”, Marilena Preda Sânc also believes that: “Our wandering through our domestic worlds, as well as our immersion into the social/ political space, our new relations with the virtual environment, reshape our daily life. Often we forget about the others, about nature, we forget to be a spiritual human being.”
Perhaps one of the most important aspects that differentiate EASTWARDS PROSPECTUS from other Romanian galleries is their showcase of video art. Sebastian Moldovan, the new artist invited to present his video artworks, uses light to define space and guide visitors through various experiences, from walking in a forest to a space travel door reminding of the places the artist lived in and moved to from time to time. There is no clear line between the home and garden and technology, between nature and artificial or the man made world, and no certain rules by which they coexist, no context added to the works, thus providing a generous freedom of interpretation.
