Friday, 27 April 2001, will take place the opening of the Romanian artist’s Nicu Ilfoveanu exhibition Marlene. At the opening will speak Szilagyi Julia, literary critic, and Vasile Ernu, Philosophy&Stuff review editor.
The exhibition will be open between 27th of April and 4th of May at Tranzit House (16, Baritiu street, Cluj) and has as subject the destiny of a destroyed synagogue in Bucharest. The images captured on slides then transformed and super-dimensioned by the artist with computer technology, are printed on calc. These super-dimentioned images are exposed in front of the windows of the Tranzit House (the old Poalei Tzedek synagogue).
The Tranzit Foundation tries to find new significances for the old synagogue space, but at the same time wants to configure the memory leading to the space specificity through the relation with others sites, bringing into discussion the destiny of different ecclesiastic and cultural sites.
