[Interview] CARMEN CASIUC | Nicodim Gallery, Bucharest

in ABOUT PEOPLE

What does an artistic director of an art gallery do? What are your duties and responsibilities?

I started working at Nicodim Gallery four months ago, when Mihai Nicodim proposed this collaboration having in mind to increase awareness of the gallery’s activities within the local and international art scene. It was already a known fact that Mihai has an eccentric taste and the irreverence to show artists and curatorial projects which exuberantly question the contemporary cultural and political status quo. Now we want to become even more uncomfortable and capture within the gallery space the complex dynamics of contemporary life. And that’s one of my duties: to seize new collaborations with artists of the younger generation, curators and galleries from Europe who would articulate our gallery’s discourse on contemporary art and its role today. At present, we are working on the publication of two exhibition books for The Basilisk and The Hierophant, curated by Aaron Moulton – a pseudo-scientific exercise in participative anthropology –, for which I contributed a text on self-fulfilling prophecies in our present landscape. For Ecaterina Vrana’ solo show, I wrote the exhibition text, installed the show and communicated the event. So, I ensure that our fantasies invade the reality and experiment with the challenges it brings along each day – I’ll come back with an experience journal on my first work anniversary. Keep Reading
