From November 18th, Suzana Dan clears the ground – Playground at Aiurart.
Clearing the place of everything that is not “Suzy”, Suzana Dan twists Aiurart’s tail to imprint it with her own bloody-happy, erotically-abrasive, para-feminist, painfully relaxed tales.
Suzana Dan is one of a small number of artists that have deformed-reformed the Romanian art at the beginning of the noughties by professing an avowedly flippant art. A type of art that was withering away the local public’s customs and expectations, sunk deep into rather orthodox cultural, aesthetic and spiritual pursuits. Suzana Dan drives painting up the wall, getting all sorts of fluids flowing from it, letting them out in the open as if to horripilate and instruct the beholder concurrently. In time, this searching instruction – never-ending and constantly reconsidered – has built an edifice, eccentric yet fragile as living art always is. At Aiurart, this edifice expands vertically, horizontally, diagonally, in every corner, from every perspective and by every means available, from painting to posturing, from object to concept, precept or tenet.
