Romanian Pavilion at 53rd Venice Biennale The Seductiveness of the Interval Stefan Constantinescu, Andrea Faciu, Ciprian Muresan 7 June - 22 November 2009
curator: Alina Serban exhibition design by studioBASAR
At the 53rd International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia 2009, the Romanian Pavilion features works by artists Stefan Constantinescu, Andrea Faciu and Ciprian Muresan. The three artistic positions will be conceptually united within a site-specific installation conceived by the studioBASAR architectural group as a theatre set.
Artists possessing the experience of exile, of the shift in political regimes, social transitions, Stefan Constantinescu, Andrea Faciu and Ciprian Muresan relate in their work to the theatricalisation of social practices, the encrypted "dramaturgy" of the public realm, and the complex order of individual destiny.
Andrea Faciu was born in 1977 in Bucharest and lives in Munich, Germany. In "EXUBERANTIA suspended," the artist is the director of a screenplay in which the viewer escapes into a detemporalised space of reverie. Reflecting on the reciprocity between stage and spectator, between the instrumental and the aesthetic, between the object of dreaming and the dreamer, Andrea Faciu proposes the traversal of an experience in which the instantaneity of the relationship between subject and world is dominant.
