To restore or how the stable structures need frail gestures / Instalation, drawing / Video 11'48'' (2018), solo show, Anca Poterasu Gallery, curator: Anca Mihulet-Kim
Series of repetitive gestures, a chronology that flows in folds and resistance spaces where a substitute for the self is searching for its status are elements delineating a conceptual universe where the mystery of things is protected. In order to substitute the body, which the artist perceives it to be more of a lost body rather than an absent one, Adelina Ivan emphasized the contact between geometry and space, seen as a secret code of communication and understanding. Force and frailty are put into balance, exposure and protection, transiency and permanence, illustrating the idea of rhythm and repetitive movement, but also the time that lengthens and reflects itself into gestures and materials. In this territory of presence and absence there is a conjunction between space and object, a moment when the two coordinates intertwine and merge on the principle of crystallization, generating what it is known as Punktraum [point space] – a mathematical model of a space of habitation, of sensitive connections and affinities between the directing lines that shaped this stable structure.
