REMEMBER – Constantin Flondor
March 11 - May 15
March 11 – May 15 2022
Galeria Jecza, Calea Martirilor, 51/52-53, Timișoara, Romania.
Jecza Gallery dedicates the first exhibition of 2022 to the artist Constantin Flondor in honor of his 85th birthday. The exhibition is called REMEMBER and includes artworks from the last few years, presented alongside historical works dating from the late 1960s, 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s.
As a central figure of the Timișoara art scene, Constantin Flondor is internationally recognized through his activity as part of the artistic groups 111, Sigma1 and Prolog, which he co-founded, but also through his educational artistic program based on an experimental approach that he developed together with his colleagues at the The Art Highschool of Timișoara in 1970. Constantin Flondor manages to bring to the foreground a type of contemplative and immersive artistic practice based on a continuous research and analysis of the visible and invisible relations between organic structures and geometry, between the mysterious laws of nature and the strict mathematical laws of science.
This exhibition has at its central core an approach based on the artist’s revisit of his own creations from the past few years. Flondor, once again returns to a series of works dating from the 1960s and 1970s which he places either in comparison with his recent artworks, or reenacts them as new works, in order to offer them new ways of interpretation. This journey in time presented by REMEMBER, provides the viewer with the chance to follow the evolution of particular themes approached by Flondor (from the analysis of the relations between light and shadow, to that of the subjective perceptions created by the concave-convex forms emerged from shaping the flour; from observing of the lively, baroque rhythms of natural structures to that of the geometry of the snow flake). Nevertheless, it also allows the viewer to perceive the gentle, yet important, transition from photography to painting.
Works by Constantin Flondor have been recently displayed in the Art Museum of Craiova (2020-2021), Diehl Gallery (2018) and Mumok Museum of Modern Art, Ludwig Foundation (2017- ongoing)
