Cirprian Mureşan 12 Leftovers from the negative film of ‘Leap Into the Void” — after 3 seconds 2003 — 2013 Photo-etching Edition of 50 Unframed

Artistic and literary works are the starting point for Romanian artist Mureşan who appropriates them in 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 often with an understated, wry humour. These negatives were taken from his remake/ homage of Yves Klein’s Saut dans le vides (1960) where the artist lays flat in melancholy rather than seen optimistically mid-air.

One of the most significant artists of his generation, solo exhibitions include Recycled Playground, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva and FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims; Ciprian Mureşan and Tomáš Svoboda, Futura Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague Ciprian Mureşan, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin.
