STORIES OF THE BODY

exhibition opening
November 28 13:00 - Fine Arts Museum
This selection is overtly a personal one, we might say even profane, so it doesn't propose any criteria of art history, aesthetics or critique. Theatre people - who are also visual artists, since they realize their performances first as images in a special space - have always been inspired by works of fine arts. The difference consists, perhaps, in the fact that in theatre, unlike in fine arts, human body is subject andobject at the same time, an unavoidable means of expression, because performances are built, first of all, on the presence of both the creator and the receiver. The Museum of Fine Arts of Cluj, housed by the Bánffy Palace, includes in its extremely rich collections - which are nonetheless unknown for many of us - countless artworks, paintings, sculptures,etchings, tapestries etc., "telling" us "stories of the body" in a surprisingly dramatic language. I tried to unveil these stories to your eyes, with a subjective regard of a theatre man.
