Silent Cohabitations

Simona Runcan

12.04.2018 – 19.05.2018

We are delighted to invite you on Thursday April 12, starting 7 pm, at the opening of Simona Runcan’s solo show “Silent Cohabitations”, the second one at Ivan Gallery after the 2016 “The Presence of Objects”.

“Silent Cohabitations” is the title of an extensive series of paintings that Simona Runcan created from 1988 until the end of her activity in 2007. They convey the artist’s explorations inside the shift of her practice towards the medium of painting that took place in the second part of her artistic career. They follow the line of the visual research on space and the relation between objects in the bi-dimensional representation which is to be found as well in her graphic experiments from previous years. Still lifes In their entirety, the paintings render frontal compositions of simple volumes, cones, cone trunks, cylinders, with organic outlines, folds and curves. Simona Runcan’s work process consisted in building these objects, wrapping them in textile materials, placing them in atmospheric installations and documenting them through photographs before painting them.
