05/2019 - Geostrategical Love – Razvan Ion, Creart Gallery, Bucharest, Romania

Position: Curator and Graphic designer

Project: „Love, as well as geostrategy, is studied as a pseudoscience, some theoreticians will argue. „Geostrategic Love” is research evolved in an exhibition realized in the Desert of Arabia, the Black Sea, and the Arabian Sea. On each shore, we discover a game. Two strategic zones in this global equation with the game in between. The human presence is almost unnoticed. The most important presence. I felt the same thing when I photographed both images: love and abandonment. If we look closer the object of love seems to have a different structure. The real structure. Strategic thinking needs to get back in touch with love. ‘Geostrategic Love’ can be the new theory to study at the academy.“ Razvan Ion

02/2018 - Solo Show, „Everything in White“, Museum of Art Cluj-Napoca, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Position: Exhibiting Artist

Project: “Everything in White” is a continuous exercise, an endless fight with the idealization of things, of purifying the personal memory. White is the absolute color that reflects light equally upon the whole spectrum creating the feeling of continuous space. The sum of all the colors or their absence generates white. Hence the obsessive painting abusively over everything. Be it photography, drawing, painting or object, in all of them, this idea is reflected.“ Theodor Moise

Project: „For Moise, white color is an imperfect, penetrable purifying imaginary. He exorcises, purifies the ambiance with the representation of its own reality. Being aware that white is only the projection of a new beginning. The impossibility of white becomes absolute. The manner of display reminds one of the “objects turned into space”, where space becomes profoundly present and the object placement creates a state of space.” Răzvan Ion
