Bogdan Teodorescu, The Story of Painting, 2013, variable dimensions, found objects, detail.


[For “The Story of Painting” I used personal objects bought or given as gifts by friends who wanted to get rid off them alongside rough or humble materials. I wanted to express this quality of ceramics of being fragile but... strong. In addition I put together the problematic of painting -which is considered by common people “Art itself”-, and that of ceramics' -again, considered by everyone something just decorative or functional. Of course, my work “The Story of Painting” can be seen as well as a little joke, looking more like a ready-made than like a crafted ceramics.]

ba be bi bo bu du bu bo bi be ba





Pablo Picasso

11 mai 1936


dar dacă rochia desprinsă de pe umeri cade în 
adâncul eleșteului ca o piatră și sfărâmă geamul 
desenului resortul ceasului îi sare în ochi și o 
orbește și o lasă pe mâinile călăului frunză uscată 
luminând mersul craniului meduzei între paginile 
cărții acrobat orfeon al afinelor schelet pietrificat al 
ceții care se ridică de pe pajiște coloană de marmură 
neagră lichidă revărsându-se din cupa de orez a 
dantelei din colțul cornișei în sunete de cifre bete 
criță căzând picătură cu picătură pe lespezile 
bureților de foc e de râs mai ales că trebuie să cânți 
toată viața acel ba be bi bo bu du bu bo bi be ba al 
supei filosofice care s-a răcit pe colțul bufetului 
unde soarele o mănîncă cu furculița

Exemplary Images [Silvia Andrei plays Picasso]






Silvia Andrei, a young student in Bucharest "translates" one of Pablo Picasso's poems into music, discovering its arpeggio structure. Bellow is the Romanian version. Too bad, seems impossible to find it in English, although you can tumble upon many other poems of him in English, easily on the web*.


9 decembrie 1938 [II]

HEADLINES/ Cel mai important :: Galeria 26/ OTA





'HEADLINES/The Most Important' 

19:00 - 04:00

artist: Bogdan Teodorescu

Order is a principle a little inconvenient because it requires physically and mentally efforts. It is also inconvenient because it takes on a classic aesthetic so therefore reserved and rigid. In addition, creates fears of uniformity. In a positive light however provides confidence in truth and immutable values.

Despite widespread opinion, chaos is even more difficult to represent, 
especially when we want an image one hundred percent corresponding with its definition. In all chaos there is some order, perhaps because of our intimate mental structures or their cultural influences.

Dependent on these issues, general attention is orderly oriented towards the 'more important' things generally serious or worrisome. Thus, hidden by a violent or even stronger appearance core elements go unnoticed.
Beside other specific laws of mass-media and its broadcast, the rule of conduct of a publication always goes on the descending formula where disasters take the headlines, and cultural news, for example are the next in line only  if is not another disaster.

Exhibition "Headlines / The main 'discuss terms such as' attention', 'perception' and 'confusion', at first placing a stake on an artistic substrate and then on a para-political discourse, somewhat dominant in most of the contemporary artistic acts and statements.
