VLAD NANCĂ

THE ROMANIAN-BULGARIAN UNION. A RETROSPECTIVE

Salonul De Proiecte, Bucharest
4 dicembre, 2014 - 15 febbraio 2015

Artisti: Marius Bercea, Dan Beudean, Răzvan Botiș, Rada Boukova, Radu Comșa, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Vikenti Komitski, Ivan Moudov, Vlad Nancă, Krassimir Terziev

Con il contributo di: Zoran Georgiev, Lubri, Dimitar Solakov, Voin de Voin

Il Salonul De Proiecte ha invitato Vlad Nancă a curare una mostra dedicata ad artisti rumeni e bulgari, sulla base dell’unione Rumeno-Bulgara iniziata da Ivan Moudov, Krassimir Terziev e Vlad Nancă il 14 Ottobre 2006 a Cracovia. L’Unione ha operato fin’ora su progetti dallo spirito assurdo/ironico/finto, come al Sofia Contemporary Museum of Art (Ivan Moudov’s Musiz project) e al Polish Year in Madagascar (un progetto in cui Janek Simon ha invitato artisti polacchi inventati provenienti dalla Romania, Bulgaria e Slovacchia per prendere parte ad una mostra ad Antananarivo). L’obiettivo artistico dell’Unione è stato dichiarato uno degli sponsor della 13a Contemporary Art Week annuale di Plovdiv, nel 2007. L’attività molto limitata dell’Unione sottolinea la mancanza di cooperazione culturale tra i due paesi, ma la sua sopravvivenza per 8 anni fornisce una chiara prova dei forti legami tra i membri fondatori.

Salonul De Proiecte invited Vlad Nancă to curate an exhibition by Romanian and Bulgarian artists, based on the Romanian-Bulgarian Union initiated by Ivan Moudov, Krassimir Terziev and Vlad Nancă on 14 October 2006 in Krakow. The Union has operated up to now in the spirit of absurd/ironic/faux projects, such as The Sofia Contemporary Museum of Art (Ivan Moudov’s Musiz project) and Polish Year in Madagascar (a project in which Janek Simon invited invented Polish artists from Romania, Bulgaria and Slovakia to take part in an exhibition in Antananarivo). The Union’s main artistic achievement was being declared one of the sponsors of the thirteenth annual Contemporary Art Week in Plovdiv in 2007. The Union’s very limited activity highlighted the lack of cultural co-operation between the two countries, but its survival for eight years provides clear proof of the strong ties between the founding members.
