    Radu Comsa - Things as they are, SABOT, Cluj-Napoca

    Radu Comşa / Things as they are, SABOT, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
    20 January - 18 February 2012

    When Giorgio Vasari wrote the “Life of Artists”, the notion of the authorship was finally acknowledged in the field of visual art. It was being used for quite some time previously, but never before had it been so clearly defined.

    Since then, authorship has become more and more connected to branding and marketing, and the trend is going towards a point when they will have become indistinguishable. I don’t mean to demonize these concepts. Yet, we would be blind if we ignored the fact that nowadays artists are compelled to build their own brand, that above everything else they need to nest into a style, which is something familiar, repeated and recognizable. In other words, they have to brand themselves.

    The whole notion of the “death of the author” didn’t really damage this status quo. On the contrary, it added strength to the idea of authorship. The artists have thus survived their own artistic death. Still, it is clear that they have simultaneously turned themselves into products of the capitalist society, much like Coca-Cola or the one dollar bill.

    Everyday, Radu Comşa is fighting his way out of the aforementioned scenario. His work – or rather his modus operandi, his life style – is continuously contradicting the situation I just described. The fact that he has been working in the city of Cluj - with its cozy little coterie where everybody peeks at each other’s work - didn’t help much.

    Concurs de monociclism - Crazy Legs Unicycle Contest (CLUC 2011), Cluj-Napoca, Romania

    30 Iulie, ora 13.00
    Parcul La Butuci, pe malul Somesului, langa Podul Garibaldi, vis-a-vis de Sala Sporturilor

    Concursul este singurul de acest fel din Romania si are ca scop promovarea si incadrarea acestei discipline sportive printre sporturile extreme/alternative din Romania. La concurcul din anul acesta sunt confirmati 14 participanti, plus patru rideri foarte experimentati veniti din Ungaria, pentru a atesta valoarea concursului.

    Spatiul este desfasurat pe aproximativ 700 de metrii patrati, impartiti in trei zone: Zona rectreativa, Zona destinata publicului si Zona de traseu.

    Concursul va avea mai multe trasee, care vor fi parcurse de catre cele doua categorii de participanti, incepatori si avansati, fiecare cate doua trasee, la care se adauga alte doua trasee de dual (in oglinda). Acestea din urma asigura un format competitional in care doi concurenti evolueaza in acelasi timp pe cate un traseu asemanator, in contratimp. Se vor organiza calificari in urma carora primii cinci din fiecare categorie se vor bate pentru o pozitionare cat mai buna. Premiile vor vi impartite pana la mentiunea a 2-a.

    La editia de anul acesta a concursului vor fi prezenti si 4 monociclisti internationali, care vor evolua intr-un show demonstrativ de trial, freestyle si flat.

    Se vor pune la dispozitie locuri de odihna cu umbrele pentru unbra, toalete, dar si racoritoare si gustari reci. Parcul La Butuci este intretinut de catre Organizatia Studentilor pentru Turismul Romanesc.

    CLUC 2011 propune ceva mai mult decat o simpla competitie, este un demers de familiarizare a opiniei publice cu acest sport relativ nou in Romania, dar cu un potential foarte mare la nivel competitional. Daca anul trecut s-au creat realtii, prietenii si parteneriate productive, in anul acesta se asteapta o lansare mult mai evitenta a acestei discipline pe piata autohtona si nu numai in ceea ce primveste sporturile alternative sau extreme.

  • Green Days Workshop Cluj-Napoca, Fabrica de Pensule

    Green Days Workshop Cluj-Napoca Fabrica de Pensule/ The Paintbrush Factory 2011

    Green Days Workshop Cluj-Napoca (Fabrica de Pensule/ The Paintbrush Factory), July 19th-21st 2011

    Fabrica de Pensule invites you to the Green Days workshop in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, an urban exploration in various spaces of the city. The workshop will include bike tours in the city, parks, green spaces, meetings and discussions with artists, arhitects, urbanists, sociologists, with guests from Italy, Belgium and England.

    Green Days is an international multidisciplinary project that proposes a reflection on the relations between urban environment and nature and offers the context of larger dabates on the way we can learn from nature and apply nature-inspired models, schemes and concepts in art, urban space and science.

    The Green Days workshop will be organized as an urban exploration in different areas of the city – parks (Parcul Feroviarilor, the Central Park), markets (Abator Market, Mihai Viteazu Market), the river banks, Mărăști and Mănăștur neighbourhoods, green spaces like the Botanical Garden, Hoia Forest. The workshop is a process of exploring not only the urban geography, but also an attempt to map different themes connected to urban ecology, green activism and the role that green spaces play in the urban and social tissue. At the end of the urban exploration, there will be a film projection session at Fabrica de Pensule, on the theme of biomimicry, as well as the Future Forecast
    workshop, conducted by István Szakáts.

    Participation at the workshop is open to anybody who will subscribe by sending an email at corina@fabricadepensule.ro (please mention your name and the part of the workshop that you would like to participate at). The tours in the city will be on bikes; there is a possibility to use the bikes offered for free by the Green Revolution Association, through the national bike-sharing program I’Velo (please mention in the email if you would like to use a bike).

    The detailed programme is available on: greendaysproject.tumblr.co​m

    Artists: Dimitrios Antonitsis, Vince Briffa, Gabriel Brojboiu, Austin Camilleri, Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Radu Comsa, Baptiste Debombourg, Sharon Engelstein, Petra Feriancova, Ry Fyan, Helidon Gjergji, Gabriele Grones, Ewa Kuras, Eva Mitala, Michal Moravcik , Tarohei Nakagawa, Adrian Scicluna, Artan Shabani, Katharina Swoboda, Dimitris Tataris, Raphael Vella, Siebren Versteeg

    15th April - 15th May 2011
     National Museum of Art / CLUJ-NAPOCA / ROMANIA


    Opening Reception: Saturday, April 16th, 7-10 p.m.

    A large group show with over twenty artists from several countries opens on 16th April, 2011 at the National Museum of Cluj in Romania. Organised by artists Dionisis Christofilogiannis and Adrian Scicluna and curated by artist-curator Raphael Vella, the exhibition is called I Fought the X and the X Won and is inspired by a rock and roll song called “I Fought the Law” with many cover versions, notably one by the band Bobby Fuller Four in the 1960’s and another by The Clash. The show proposes different situations in which one is faced by antagonistic forces and defeat or failure, and the work is extremely varied, with media ranging from video to drawing, painting and sculpture.
    The work included in the exhibition I Fought the X and the X Won rewrites assumed frames of reference, asking questions rather than providing answers. Some of it, like Helidon Gjergji’s, Petra Feriancova’s, Siebren Versteeg’s and Adrian Scicluna’s pieces, plays with contemporary information and communication technologies and their predicaments: translation, distance, coding, and dislocation. Katharina Swoboda’s and Vince Briffa’s videos struggle against time: they simulate, respectively, a three-minute boxing round and a race, but their time is fractured or fading away, like that of a boxer who gets knocked to the canvas, or a retired athlete, too old to be effective on the track of life. Gabriele Grones’s painting haunts us as it also maps out meticulously the traces of time on a face, while Tarohei Nakagawa’s black and white photographs and Austin Camilleri’s small sculptures are the antithesis of the portrait: they hide rather than reveal identities and make us wonder whether the hidden face belongs to a representative of power or a victim.
    Understandably, the effects of the media and other globalising and political forces, advertising campaigns and stereotypes also play a central role in the works of a number of artists in the show, particularly Ewa Kuras, Gabriel Brojboiu, Michal Moravcik and Dimitris Antonitsis. Embattled political histories, art-historical references, cinematic and internet-based references merge in the images of Dionisis Christofilogiannis, Radu Comsa and Raphael Vella, while Ry Fyan, Artan Shabani, Dimitris Tataris, Sharon Engelstein and Eva Mitala direct their attention to personal and collective memories and occasionally uncanny situations and anxieties.
