The exhibition Mental Geography: Constellations, the first presentation of the artist Theodoulos Gregoriou in Romania, can be visited on the 4th floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art until October 1, 2023.
Theodoulos Gregoriou is one of the most important contemporary Cypriot artists, having a long and prestigious international career, his work being exhibited in renowned institutions or events such as the Venice Biennale, the Louvre Museum, or at the Place du Louvre.
The exhibition Mental Geography: Constellations, co-curated by Alexandru Oberländer-Târnoveanu and Catherine Louis Nikita, represents a return to some of the most essential places in the artist’s biography: from the copper mines that populated his childhood to Bucharest, the place in which he studied, at the end of the 70s, painting, at the Institute of Fine Arts “N. Grigorescu.”
The site-specific installation that gives the title of the exhibition is a continuation of the concerns of the artist, who practices a type of personal land art in which, instead of intervention in nature, the landscape is cut out of the artist’s memory and transposed inside the exhibition space in a metaphorical form, reduced to the essence.
As the title suggests, Theodoulos Gregoriou goes on a mental journey in this exhibition, through places and times both from his past and from that of humanity, through which he traces the continuity of some concepts beyond the continuous transformations of matter.
On Thursday, September 21, from 4:00 p.m., a new guided tour will be organized with the exhibition curator, Alexandru Oberländer-Târnoveanu.
Tickets: Participation in this guided tour is included in the price of the entrance ticket to the museum (24 lei full ticket, to which discounts or freebies can be applied for different categories of public).
Reservations: Registrations are held 30 minutes before the event at the ticket office.
Address: MNAC, Str. Izvor 2-4, Palace of the Parliament, Wing E4, Bucharest
