Tara (von Neudorf). Cartographer of sinister history

The ICC Gallery is proud to present the works of the Romanian artist Tara (von Neudorf) – on display for the first time in Poland. Tara most often uses black marker pens and red paint as his tools. In his best known pieces, grotesque and uncompromising truth about our times is being scribbled on old, communist maps and school boards. His works allude to the unwelcome history and provide commentary on contemporary politics – local, Romanian one, as well as some universal issues.

Tara is one of the most original and – simultaneously – most censored contemporary Romanian artists. His art, both sarcastic and suffused with black humour, triggers violent emotions by means of its expressive form as well as critical content. The ICC discovers Tara not only for Poland, but also for the whole of Europe. In general, the artist works in Sibiu and Engelthal, while his pieces are mainly displayed at the Anaid Gallery in Bucharest. Undoubtedly, the presence of his art in Krakow is quite an event. The year 2012 was particularly fortunate for the artist as he was awarded in the Strabag Artaward Interational competition, and his pieces were exhibited in Vienna.
