Monument to Transformation
30 September – 13 November 2009
Opening: Wednesday, 30 September, 7 pm
From 30th September until 13th November 2009, Centre for Visual Introspection presents Monument to Transformation, a project initiated by theoretician and curator Vít Havránek, director of contemporary art centre tranzitdisplay Prague and artist and curator Zdenek Baladrán. It presents the outcome of more than two years of researching “social transformation“. The exhibition in Bucharest is conceived as an imaginative and analytical space that – with a certain distance – enables the visitor to see and reflect the processes of change that started by the fall of the Iron Curtain and have to an extent continued until the present. The way this topic is approached is influenced by a feeling of affiliation to these changes which are in a way co-formed by us and whose impact affects and influences us. It is therefore an attempt to look at “transformation” as at a “lived out” and gradually receding process.
The exhibition will present several unique works of art that belong to the cornerstone references of that period.
