The exhibition of French artist Tania Mouraud can be seen until July 31st at the Eastwards Prospectus gallery in Bucharest and on various billboards in Bucharest and, later, throughout the country.
The Romanian cities where works of the artists will go on display are Bacău, Iași, Buzău, Sibiu, Pitești, Cluj and Roman, the birth place of Taniei Mouraud’s father.
Starting from a line by Benjamin Fondane (B. Fundoianu), the French artist establishes an interaction with passers-by through this urban intervention, in order to underline people’s individual responsibility when it comes to taking a stand. It is the first time the artist works go on display simultaneously on billboards in various cities.
This is Tania Mouraud’s first personal exhibition in Romania and includes photography, video, sound and digital works, revealing some of her main preoccupations: the present relationship between man and nature or the responsibility of men in society.
The artist’s Bucharest exhibition comes less than a year after an ample, dedicated retrospective at the Centre Pompidou-Metz. Other important, personal exhibitions of Mouraud were Ad Nauseam at Mac/Val, Vitry-sur-Seine (France), Exhausted Laughters at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne Métropole (France) and J’entends les trains depuis toujours/I keep hearing the trains for ever at the Slought Foundation, Kimmel Center and Art Alliance, Philadelphia (US). The artist’s works are hosted at museums around the world, including Musée d’Art Moderne in Ville de Paris; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Musée Carnavalet, Paris; CAPC Musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux; Musée d’Art Moderne, Saint-Etienne’ Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, MAMCO, Geneva and the Museum of Modern Art, Arnhem.
