[Nettime-ro] Sorin Oncu, Izomorphism, Atelier 030202, Feb 13, h. 19.00

Sorin Oncu, Izomorphism,
Atelier 030202, Sf. Vineri Str. 11
Olivia Nitis
February 13th 7 pm
In Romanian
art practice gay culture doesnât have a history. The representation of
masculine nudity, for instance, considered taboo before 1989, as nudity in
general, interested a few Romanian artists after the revolution, but only as an
exploration of the forbidden subject. Gay artists seem not to exist. It might be a matter of fear of expression
in the public sphere. Nonetheless, one artist, Sorin Oncu brings forth a
possibility, a field of open debate on what is legal, human and democratic. He
uses simple and ordinary iconographic elements of every day reality in ironic
connections. The old and the new, the tradition and the modern perspectives,
the bold and the beautiful, the kitsch and its opposing features, the
mechanical approach of ideas, these are all analyzed by Sorin Oncu, by trying
to understand how the shape of things still affects their content in collective
conscience. Isomorphism is a project about looking at otherness and about the
constant possibility of each of us being the other in the contemporary social
dynamics. This is a project about defining the norm, an invitation to
intelligent and ironic meditation and to accepting the other not as opposed to
you, but more as the possibility of you. Olivia NiÅiÅ
