tranzit.ro/ Iași is inviting you to join us for a new commission by Dan Acostioaei. The artist's proposal enables a blessing ceremony of tranzit.ro/ Iași's project space that will be performed on Saturday 7th of February 2015, 7 p.m.
”The project relies on the fact most of forms of art appreciation involve a form of pious reverence, very similar to a religious feeling. Both the act of religious faith and hope in the power of art to create reality, are intersecting to the point where both become material.” (Dan Acostioaei, 2015)
A documentation of the project will be exhibited at tranzit.ro/ Iasi space which is opened for public from Wednesday to Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Dan Acostioaei lives and works in Iaşi, Romania. He is a visual artist and he holds a teaching position at University of Arts ”George Enescu” in Iaşi. His works focuses on the identity models of the Romanian society in transition and on the ideological boundaries between the economic sphere and the conditions of artistic production within former Eastern Bloc. His artistic projects were part of group exhibitions such as One Sixth of the Earth - Ecologies of Image, MUSAC, Leon, Spain (2012), Transitland: videoart in Central and Eastern Europe 1989-2009, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain (2010), Illuminations, Level 2 Gallery, Tate Modern, London, UK (2007).
The main partner of tranzit is ERSTE Foundation.
