​Artist Talk & Closing Party Bianca Mann: The Blind Spot

Published to News on Jun 09, 2017

Mobius is welcoming the public to an exceptional artist talk, a bridge between two generations of sculptors, each of them enriching and molding the other, while creating their own artistic vision and discourse: Aurel Vlad and Bianca Mann

Aurel Vlad (b. 1954, Galati, Romania) graduated the Arts Institute “Nicolae Grigorescu” in Bucharest and in 2004 he became Doctor in Visual Arts, within the National University of Arts Bucharest, Romania. The Expressionist gesture sculpture of Aurel Vlad disturbs and at a same time seduces the viewer. Aurel Vlad’s characters are former victims, who have passed the experience of torture and physical and psychological pain, transformed into emblems, icons of the martyrs, purified by suffering (example statuary group “Procession of the Sacrificed” at the museum ”Memorial of the Victims of Communism & Anticommunist Resistance”, Sighetul Marmatiei, Romania). Aurel Vlad collaborates with Anaid Art Gallery since 2012. (Courtesy of Anaid Art Gallery) 

Bianca Mann (b. 1991, Bucharest, Romania) graduated the National Univeristy of Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, with an MA in Sculpture. Mann's visual investigation deals with themes such as identity, stigma, oneirism and zoomorphism, using her own mask as a research tool. The projects that marked the beginning of Bianca Mann's artistic career reflect her interest in the individual's identity - from ​Sensuality versus Sexuality project, to ​Persona​, Amorphos​The Blind Spot​mask
