The work of seven female artists from the region is featuring at the Contemporary Art Biennale which opened this month in Cisnadioara, central Romania.
Headlined „Danube Contemporary 22 – Shapes and Personality“ the show features sculptures, drawings, paintings and photography by the artists who are from seven Central European countries.
„We want this exhibition to show that Central Europe is a cultural area which is defined by its diversity“ curator and Kunsthaus 7B director Thomas Emmerling said after the opening on June 19.
„Every artist is strong in her individual position and successful in their own countries. They have different languages and identites, that (together) are creating the holistic system of Central Europe.“
„We wabred to bring this idea into socuety and everyday life. We believe a biennial exhibition and gathering of artists, curators, art critics and collectors is the right structure to do it.“
The artists represented at the exhibition are:
Sorina von Keyserling, Berlin, sculptor
Luise Kloos, Graz, drawings, paintings
Alena Adamikowa, Bratislava, painting
Ljudmila Martinova, Donezk, now Budapest, painting
Boglarka Nagy, Budapest, painting
Veronika Desova, Varna – Glasgow, photography
Irina Epifan, Constanta, photography
„The artists are all female, because society is changing,especially in Central and Eastern Romania, when the women too are changing,“ explains curator Emmerling.
The Biennale is open by appointment at Kunsthaus 7B Cisnadioara, Sibiu county, until 25th August 2022. Groupreservations under linkto7B@gmail.com.
