DESCRIPTION

Artistic and literary works are the starting point for the work of Ciprian Muresan (*1977, Dej, Romania), who appropriates them for a reflective project that intersects with the recent history of Romania and other Eastern European countries and, more generally, ponders the realities of the contemporary world. For his first solo exhibition in Switzerland, Ciprian Muresan presents two new pieces: an installation, "Recycled Playground", from which the exhibition takes its title and its tone, and a companion video creation. A selection of other significant works is also presented. Juggling humour and critique, the artist highlights the structures and processes of all forms of power.

This exhibition has been organised in collaboration with FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (France) and the Contemporary Art Gallery of Vancouver (Canada).
