Ex-Libris Brâncuși



Between March 1st and April 28th 2019, Brasov County Council and the Art Museum of Brasov organise the exhibition ‘Ex- Libris Brâncuși’, featuring works by over 200 artists: illustrators, painters, sculptors, ceramists from Romania, Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia and Turkey, as a tribute for ‘the master of Infinity’. Personalities like Grigore Leşe, Ştefan Câlţia, Mircia Dumitrescu, Aurel Bulacu, Alexandru Ghilduş, Bogdan Hojbotă, Napoleon Tiron, Costel Iacob and Mihai Tugearu will attend the exhibition.

• An original approach

The exhibition was organized in partnership with the Visual Artists’ Union of Romania, The National University of Arts of Bucharest, The West University of Timisoara – Faculty of Arts and Design, and ‘Ovidius’ University of Constanta –Faculty of Arts, under the auspices of the Romanian National Commission for UNESCO. In these ex-libris, the visual artists depict Brâncuşi in a virtual book that is engraved, not written. Therefore, the exhibition comes up with an original approach, prompting us to stand in awe of the works of Brâncuşi.

• Brâncuşi moulding workshop

At the same time, the Art Museum hosted the ‘Brâncuşi Moulding Workshop’, an interactive workshop for children, where the little ones learnt the secrets of the exquisite craftsmanship of Constantin Brâncuşi. The workshop acted as an initiation in the craft of sculpture for the participating students, who worked surrounded by the memories of Brâncuşi’s works. The children learnt the techniques used by sculptors, especially the ones characteristic to Brâncuşi, and created a small masterpiece in Brâncuşi style.
• Recycling-oriented education
The organizers of the workshops also approached the issue of recycling education (a persistent topic in the contemporary art of the last few decades) and that of recycled paper modelling (reame). Using scotch tape, the children bind together the elements they have moulded, thus creating a paper craft that they can take home. The clay objects are transformed into ceramics that the children can keep as souvenirs.
