Ileana Pintilie and the artists
Hidden Paradise is a group show of Ciprian Bodea, Constantin Flondor, Cosmin Fruntes, Andrei Rosetti, Sorin Scurtulescu, students of Constantin Flondor and a round table talk with Ileana Pinitilie, art historian from Timisoara.
Timisoara has been kind of cradle for innovative and contemporary artist like Constantin Flondor, Stefan Bertalan, Doro Tulcan a.m.m.
Their Neo-avantgarde approaches in Eastern Europe, i.e. Sigma group (Stefan Bertalan, Constantin Flondor, Lucian Codeianu, Doro Tulcan) is still surprisingly contemporary. Nature and science became platforms for a nonconformist art in the increasingly restrictive nineteen seventies under Ceausescu regime.
Many western European artists have been influenced of the Eastern European development in contemporary art and performative art especially, without referring or mentioning it.
We want to find out how art has been and actually is created in Eastern Europe in comparison with Western Europe and where the influences are coming from and going to.
