Interview: Caius Rotaru and Alina Aldea

 

Luca Curci talks with the artists Caius Rotaru and Alina Aldea during VENICE INTERNATIONAL EXPERIMENTAL | OUT OF BORDERS in Venice.

Caius Rotaru was born in 1969, in ClujNapoca (Transilvania, Romania). Formally trained as a sculptor at the National Art University from Bucharest, his education and personal research covers a wide range of cultural fields (literature, theatre, film). He started exhibiting in collective exhibitions and opened his first personal exhibition in 1999, then participated in several monumental sculpture workshops. For a while, he worked as a museographer. This experience influenced his artistic approach and was also helpful later, after 2010, when he co-curated several Romanian-Israeli exhibitions. The line of his thaughts, ideas and discourses evolves in a straight course, starting from the “sculpture on pedestal” to objects and, more recently, installations.

Interview: Somsak Chaituch

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Somsak Chaituch, the winner of Painting category of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

Somsak Chaituch (1967, Northern-Thailand) became a Master of Fine Arts at Twente University (2003, Netherlands). He is an abstract and figurative expressionist artist that combines both eastern and western art. Warm melodies and traditional rhythms blend in abstract expressionistic themes of nature that still refer to the warmth and colours of his origin. Brilliant and flat colours give his paintings that joy the observers need to see in art, that feeling of sparkling excitement that every powerful artwork must give at first glimpse. Chaituch received several international awards and had many solo and group exhibitions in museums around the world.

Interview: Janzen Albert

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Janzen Albert, the winner of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

I was born in 1989 in Siberia and grew up in Germany. After 13 years at the School of Music and Art I followed my artistic path autonomously alongside studying Philosophy and Mathematics in Berlin. It was during this time that I discovered my love for the line. Later I went to London to study Logic and became inspired by the autonomous work of artists like Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter and Zao Wou-Ki. During my Masters of Logic in Amsterdam I won the Luxembourg Art Prize which offered me my first Solo exhibition. Ever since then I continue my work in philosophy and art and seek out for new opportunities to exhibit my work.
