Iulian Bisericaru (b. 1987) and Aurora Király (b. 1970) both engage in hybrid projects involving architectural languages, interests in approaching the inhabited and built anthropic space in order to better convey our relationship with space. Whereas Iulian Bisericaru’s long term critical stance towards ecological utopias takes place on the painting canvas, Aurora Király works with photography and its associations with memory-keeping. 

Anca Poterașu Gallery presents a dialogue between the two artists on the relation between image-making and artistic mediums. 

Iulian Bisericaru will show his latest works from his ongoing artistic residency at Cité internationale des arts. His residency project, Solitary Objects, focuses on the Pariculteaurs programme that incentivises Paris citizens to build green terraces on the balconies of their flats. Iulian Bisericaru is interested in exploring the different textures defined by the creation of landscape in concrete environments. His paintings reveal compositions that underline the permanent conflictual stance that nature has towards architectural elements of urban habitation. 

Aurora Király will be showing her latest works from the series Viewfinder Mock-up (2016 – ongoing) inspired by the camera viewfinder-box. The powerful lines and the architectural plans of the assemblies make predominant the use of folding with a double justification: the viewfinder box and the drawing of its shadows is an extension of modulating photography into drawing and vice versa, whereas the object itself is an articulation between bi and three-dimensional space. Inspired by some contemporary writings on memory this project also refers on how our memory works: adding or excluding aspects of our lives, a continuous selection of instances.
