The Movement for Contemporary Art in Portugal organizes between 16 – 30 September 2008, the painting exhibition Brancusi:E=mc2 by Romeo Niram
This exhibition is dedicated to the encounter that has never taken place in the real world between the physicist Albert Einstein and the sculptor Constantin Brancusi, an encounter that may have taken place in the world of the creative ideas. Romeo Niram tries to find common points, to establish clear relations between science and art, showing how the human mind can reach, by way of unknown and unexplainable mechanisms, scientifically or artistically, the same genial intuition that can determine the progress of Humanity.
Niram proposes a new interpretation of Brancusi´s sculpture by means of the science, or of the physics by means of the art. It is not without interest that The Beginning of the World, the famous egg-shaped sculpture of Brancusi had been created before the scientific community decided the shape of the Universe to be quasi-spherical, or that Einstein’s formula E=mc2 proved to be, after his death, the Formula of the Creation of the Universe. Brancusi’s sculpture, Einstein’s physics, art and science are brought together on Niram’s canvas, raising even more questions. The answers may be found in a thorough exploration of what lies between the lines and colours of the Romanian painter.
In the words of Álvaro Lobato de Faria, director and founder of MAC, Romeo Niram, a painter of renowned merit, of powerful and expressive personality and of unquestionable virtuosity, is, between the abstract and the figurative, a sensitive witness of our times. Niram puts forward ideas, thoughts and concepts full of passion and energy, of strong structure and morphology, a renewal of the Art.
Born in a Jewish family in 1974 in Bucharest, Romeo Niram lives in Madrid, where he has founded the arts magazine in 4 languages Niram Art, dedicated to promoting artists of all nationalities. This month the first Espacio Niram is to be inaugurated in the heart of the Spanish capital, a unique space meant to be the physical continuation of the virtual artistic space created by the Niram Art Magazine, a gathering spot for all artists and those interested in arts.
The Spanish art critic Begoña Fernández Cabaleiro underlined in the article Brancusi, Einstein and the Origin of the Universe that Niram creates a unique language, of symbols and colours that offers the key to the understanding of his work.
The Movement for Contemporary Art, distinguished cultural institution that has energized for 14 years the arts’ scene in Portugal, offers the Portuguese art-lovers this intriguing artistic vision named Brancusi:E=mc2 by Romeo Niram , together with the necessary key to the understanding of his art.
