We are pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in Italy by Romanian artist Serban Savu, one of the most eminent painters from Cluj-Napoca.
"Communism" (or whatever that was) continued its existence in Romania long after it was officially declared dead. But anyway, this is not what I am interested in, it is not "Communism" or the regime but its results, the effects of a failed utopia.
After finishing University Savu was awarded a two-years postgraduate research grant to Venice, where he studied Venetian Renaissance painting
For the exhibition in Milano Sometimes my Eyes are the Eyes of a Stranger, Savu has chosen to explore five different ways of looking at reality: through the gaze of the spectator, the voyeur, the solitary, the bird-eye view and the nocturnal view.
Serban Savu was born in Sighisoara in 1978. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Europe and the USA. In 2014 he took part in the exhibition Romanian Scenes at Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris. In 2013 he exhibited at Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw, at Rudolfinum in Prague and at the Arken Museum in Copenhagen. In 2007 and 2009 he participated in the Biennale of Prague.
