Mobius is pleased to present I Am At My Most Beautiful When I Am Alone, a solo exhibition of works by Lea Rasovszky, curated by Diana Marincu. The exhibition is on display from December 7th through February 7th.
An opening reception will be held from 7 pm to 10 pm, on Thursday, December 7th.
"The beauty of loneliness is something we don't talk about enough. About the moment when someone's face blossoms in the dark like a rare plant that will never become extinct. Lea Rasovszky's portraits in ceramic do not transpose her drawings into solid matter, but continue them in a relentless effort to discover their boundaries. Where exactly is the boundary between me and you, where does the contour of the face end and a landscape begin, where is the pure air and what's the purposefully sculpted void? The life of a line drawn becomes a fold in porcelain imbued with sleep, silence and peace. Every splash of color transforms into topographical indices that place the character in a diorama of solitude." (Diana Marincu, curator)
Lea Rasovszky is interested in marginal “cultural” subjects, from categories such as kitsch, cartoons, “manele”, fitness and other stories or “psychological peripheries”, not only social. Her works of art are, most of the time, portraits in motion of people, situations, and emotions she treats with soft bitter-sweet humor. Soft War is a new work that paradoxically brings together the fear of war and the taste of Turbo chewing-gum, the aggressiveness of the tank and the softness of a plush toy, the tension generated by conflict and the cherry blossom. These contradictions generate a pink and soft military tank, present here to remind us how out of proportion daily human violence is and how easily it can be activated, but also deactivated.
