Found and lost
Exhibitions of photographs of Nicu Ilfoveanu

At 6.00 p.m., the Romanian Institute of Culture in Warsaw cordially invites everyone to a vernissage. The exhibition’s curator is Bogdan Achimescu.
Nicu Ilfovenau belongs to a young generation of Romanian photographers. His Krakow exhibition shows three intriguing visions of the artist’s world. The Found and Lost series features a flea market of unparalleled proportions which is seen from the point of view of an invisible and anonymous observer. The latter, immersed in a multitude of objects and people, soars over a surrealist dead stock and freezes the images from outside time. In his landscape series, the artist uses rich colouring whose name (Steampunk Autochrome) perversely blends technical terminology with aesthetic canon. Finally, the viewers are invited to participate in unique amalgam of meditation and loud affirmation. In a visual essay on the industrial period, which takes shape of a two-channelled projection, Ilfoveanu puts railway tracks from provincial corners of Romania together with twisting gorges of Chicago’s 20th century architecture.
The works of Nicu Ilfoveanu have been exhibited all over the world, including the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, and China.
The exhibition is organised within the framework of the 5th Festival of Romanian Culture in Krakow.
