ElectroPutere Gallery is happy to announce the exhibition "The Anatomy of a journey" by the Romanian sculptor Cristian Răduţă.
C. Răduţă combines elements from nature with ideas borrowed from the fundamental sciences and the recent space programs. His practice is at the intersection of natura naturans (nature in and for itself) and the fictional frame of futures technologies. In this frame, the dualism nature/culture is dissolved, allowing a complete merge of the natural with the technology. In his vision of the future, a cat, an iguana or an insect can travel and live together in space and the inorganic matter may own self control and consciousness. The exhibition “The Anatomy of a journey” is showing a fictional travelogue in which different characters face various contingencies. A tin character, constrained by the surroundings, lands forced with a parachute in the gallery space, an aircraft of which engine combines a flower as a propeller, un bouquet of planets helped by a ladder to suspend itself or a hat choses to be worn by a star to personalize itself. The exhibition combines sculptures and objects realized with various current materials sometimes by joining with nature objects they produce a framework of improvisation, closer to the imaginary world of animation and very little of the representation of traditional sculptor invoice.
