'Three Colours I Know In This World' Exhibition, Tobe Gallery


'Three Colours I Know In This World' Exhibition, Tobe Gallery
This title quotes the first line of the Romanian communist anthem - a line translated into the language of photography which can help to understand the motivation of this outstanding artist.

A line translated into the language of photography, can help to analyse and understand my artistic and personal motivation too.

I didn't choose the subject, I just tried to clarify what I am looking for behind the picture and because of that I started to use a method.

I started to play with my pictures: so I let them direct me and conduct me. This is a personal story considering the fact that communism created an enormous chasm between the generation of my parents; and that of mine.

They lived through communism and they experienced the change of regime as well, but we didn't.

Therefore they know something we don't. So here is this history I only heard of and wasn't part of, here are all the traumas inherited from my parents - and they all come together as visions in my head and sensations I feel in my body.

My personal motivation is to move closer to my parents. Ceaușescu's voice, fears, desires, secrets and paranoia stepped into the private lives under the evil eyes of the Securitate.

My parents best kept secret was their belief, their language, their soul. This is me."

Paying attention to the prevention measures currently in force, only 3 visitors can be in the gallery at a time. Thanks for your understanding!
