Artist Ciprian Mureşan discusses his exhibition Recycled Playground at the Contemporary Art Gallery, February 8 to April 7, 2013. Video by Brian Lye.
The Contemporary Art Gallery presents the first solo institutional exhibition in North America for Romanian artist Ciprian Muresan.
Artistic and literary works are the starting point for Muresan who appropriates them in a reflective project that intersects with the recent history of Romania and other Eastern European countries
and, more generally, ponders the realities of the contemporary world. Included in the show are two newly commissioned pieces by the Contemporary Art Gallery with our partners FRAC Champagne-Ardenne and Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva: an installation, Recycled Playground, which gives the exhibition its title and overarching tone, and a companion video Protesting Against Myself. A selection of other significant works is also presented. Juggling humour and critique, the artist highlights the structures and processes of all forms of power.
