de dimineata am vazut pe facebook la citeva doamne simpa stirea despre ciprian muresan despre care scrie ny times.
ciprian e un artist foarte conceptual, cu rabdare si disciplina aproape minastireasca, calugareasca. i-am vazut o lucrare la craiova anul trecut, preferata mea din toata expozitia, evanghelia dupa ioan
iata ce scriu americanii despre el:
Modern art gets a reality check too. In a 2011 video we see robed monks in a scriptorium. They aren’t transcribing religious texts, though. They’re drawing copies of art book illustrations: an abstract painting by Malevich, a Mondrian grid, a photograph of Joseph Beuys. All three artists are famous for being utopians; their art has the status of holy writ. Needless to say, Mr. Muresan’s approach to them is not reverential.
The monks, it turns out, aren’t monks; they’re Mr. Muresan’s artist-friends. Most of the images they’re copying are from a catalog of work by the American conceptualist Elaine Sturtevant, who has made a career of recreating art by other artists, specifically male superstars, with the intent of, among other things, puncturing myths of originality and genius. Mr. Muresan pushes her endeavor further with a video of artists making copies of printed reproductions of Ms. Sturtevant’s re-creations, which were themselves derived from printed reproductions of the originals.
sunt de doua ori happy pentru aceasta intimplare: mai intii pentru ca se mai scrie o data de bine de un roman peste hotare, mai apoi ca internetul incepe sa se miste dupa regulile lui: nu e stirea la tv, nu-i nimik ->o promovam fiecare pe net.
