BUCHAREST.- The condition of sculpture as object of passion: new artworks of the Romanian sculptor Bogdan Rata are being exhibited at Nasui collection & gallery, Bucharest, Romania in autumn 2015.

The new body of artworks of Bogdan Rata, grouped under the title ”Superstitions”, reveals a certain type of flux which goes beyond the present reality, with its effects being enhanced in a primitive, almost religious way. Integrated as installations and made in relation to different raw elements like water, sand, glass or soil, the new sculptures of Bogdan Rata create balancing to and fro meanings, from future science to dark magic and back.

”The ambiguity of the characters, the anonymity of the covered body, the uncertainty of the identity, all shape a particular mystery around the sculptures. On the other hand, they give the spectator a certain power: they leave space, in order for the viewer to complete the artworks with their own visions and stories.” (Bogdan Rata).

The art objects are crafted with a realistic perfection, based on scientific understanding of the world. But this approach is troubled by the meaningful gestures of the body elements which introduce emotions and energies related to life and death.

”The real anatomy is transformed and reinterpreted; it is like the composition of my sculpture bears in mind the accidental amputations of the Greek and Roman sculptures during the past thousands of years. This fact symbolically resonates with the very amplification of my sculptures’ anatomic functions.” (Bogdan Rata).

Bogdan Rata solo show ”Superstitions” is presented by Nasui Collection & Gallery in Bucharest, three years after the last show in the Romania's capital.
