Delia Popa: Fata cu tentacule

30.06 – 10.09.2017


[ENGLISH below]

Ukiyo-e – sau Imagini ale lumii plutitoare – este un gen de arta japoneza care a inflorit intre secolele 17-19 si care, prin picturi si xilogravuri, se concentra pe vietile oamenilor obisnuiti. Shunga – sau Imagini de primavara - este un tip de Ukiyo-e realizata mai ales ca xilogravura colorata si este, de fapt, arta erotica sau pornografie.

Shunga s-a bucurat de succes in toate clasele sociale, cu exceptia clasei dominante a shogunilor si, conform surselor, in aceeasi masura in randul femeilor si al barbatilor, fiind in posesia samurailor, a negustorilor, dar si a casnicelor. Majoritatea artistilor de Ukiyo-e au realizat si Shunga, aceasta fiind cautata chiar mai mult decat alte teme si dovedindu-se ca o singura lucrare Shunga le putea asigura traiul maestrilor acestora pe circa 6 luni.

Una din cele mai cunoscute lucrari Shunga ii apartine lui Hokusai si se intituleaza Visul sotiei pescarului, din 1814. Este o gravura ce a inspirat numerosi artisti moderni si contemporani, insa pana acum nici o artista…

In spatiul Sandwich, Delia Popa continua seria de gravuri, desene si picturi intitulata Existential mice / Soareci existentiali (2011-prezent) in care personaje antropomorfice isi asuma diverse roluri umane si comunica intre ele, atingand, cu naturalete si uneori cu umor, subiecte precum feminismul sau marginalitatea. De aceasta data, insa, personajele renunta la comunicarea verbala in schimbul apropierii fizice – o fantezie pe care o savureaza din plin si asupra careia, fara indoiala, detin controlul. The existential mouse (Soarecele existential) nu mai cauta, pentru moment, raspunsuri intelectuale, ci le traieste neapologetic.

Accesul copiilor sub 14 ani este interzis.

Delia Popa este o artista vizuala care lucreaza cu desen, pictura, performance, instalatie video si text, si care se inspira din domenii ca istorie, comedie, antropologie culturala si trauma. A obtinut Diploma Postuniversitara in Arte Vizuale de la Goldsmiths College, University of London (PgDip2005), si Masterul in Arte Vizuale de la School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA 2007).

Expozitii, proiectii video si performance includ proiectul Fete cu idei [Baieti si picturi], Lateral ArtSpace, Fabrica de Pensule, Cluj / ODD, Bucuresti (2016); Dispozitii in timp si spatiu, MNAC Bucuresti (2015); instalatia experimentala We, Our Friends and Us, Salonul de Proiecte (2013); cercetarea Matonge-Tervuren, Advanced Performance and Scenography Studies (a.pass) Bruxelles (2012); proiectul inter-cultural Chelen Amenca/Danseaza cu noi, Muzeul National Brukenthal (2012) si UNA Galeria (2014). www.deliapopa.com

Delia Popa: The girl with tentacles

30.06 – 10.09.2017


Ukiyo-e – or Images of the floating world – is a type of Japanese art that has flourished in the 17th - 19th centuries and that, using painting and woodcuts, focused on the lives of regular people. Shunga – or Spring images – is a type of Ukiyo-e created mostly by colored woodcuts and is, in fact, erotic or pornographic art.

Shunga was very popular with all social classes, except the dominant one of shoguns and, according to the sources, with men and women alike. Samurais, merchants and also housewives would have their own Shunga copies. Most of the Ukiyo-e artists have also created Shunga works, since they were in much greater demand than all the other themes. In fact, they could live off one sold work for as long as six months. One of the most famous Shunga work is signed by Hokusai and titled “The fisherman's wife's dream”, from 1814. It is an engraving that has inspired many modern and contemporary artists, but, as far as we know, no women artists…

At Sandwich, Delia Popa continues her series of engravings, drawings and paintings Existential mice (2011 – present) in which anthropomorphic characters take on various human roles and communicate with each other, touching on various subjects like feminism or marginality. This time, however, the characters discard verbal communication and take on a physical approach – a fantasy they fully relish and over which, without a doubt, they have complete control. For the moment, The existential mouse doesn't look for intellectual answers anymore, but unapologetically lives them.

Children under 14 are not allowed in the exhibition.

Delia POPA is a visual artist who works with drawing, performance, video installation and text and that takes inspiration from various other fields like history, comedy, cultural anthropology and trauma. She has a PgDip in Visual Arts from Goldsmiths College, University of London (2005) and a Master in Visual Arts from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA 2007).

Among her exhibitions, video screenings and performances are Girls with ideas [Boys and painting], Lateral ArtSpace, Fabrica de Pensule, Cluj and ODD, Bucharest (2016); Dispositions in Time and Space, MNAC Bucharest (2015); the experimental installation We, Our Friends and Us, Salonul de Proiecte (2013); the research Matonge-Tervuren, Advanced Performance and Scenography Studies (a.pass) Bruxelles (2012), the inter-cultural project Chelen Amenca, Brukenthal National Museum (2012) and UNA Galeria (2014).

sandwich reclaims the hidden potential of a residual space between two utilitarian buildings and uses its own constructive limits in order to provoke new solutions. sandwich functions as an independent art space since April 2016.​
