The project aims to promote the young generation of Romanian artists, also involving the Barbu Vacarescu community.
The paintings are signed by Victor Fota and are part of the Human Extension and Entropy series, through which he explores the relationship between man and technology. One Night Gallery used the augmented reality to bring the spectator into the story of Victor Fota's work, where video-mapping animations articulate the fascinating universe in his paintings.
"Over the years, we have built a real community in our buildings in the Barbu Vacarescu area, and now it's time to give it a name. Art & Tech District is an ambitious project inspired by the way our partners manage to innovate constantly. We are thus taking on the promise of offering them more than just office space, creating a place to socialize in which we can enjoy new experiences together. Just because innovation is part of the DNA of our tenants, we launch the project through an exhibition that integrates a mix of technology and art inspired by Victor Fota's work, "said Georgiana Oltenescu, Head of Marketing & Communication at Globalworth.
"Thanks to the efforts of One Night Gallery, during the six editions to bring art through technology closer to the public, we have proven that these hybrid events are a central point of interest. That is why we are delighted that our Globalworth partners have embraced our approach and that together we can make one more step creating the Art & Tech District, "said Madalina Ivascu, founder of One Night Gallery.
"This art district is the pretext by which we invite all creative and specialists to transform new technologies into exposure environments for contemporary Romanian artists. The unique curatorial approach that One Night Gallery has proposed since its first edition has as a common denominator the innovative collaborations through which the audience enjoyed the contemporary Romanian art in all dimensions of technology ", added Sorina Topceanu, founder of One Night Gallery.
The opening will take place on 31 July, with the first part of the Human Extension series, which will be hosted at the Globalworth Tower (Barbu Vacarescu, no 201) reception until 7th August, and visitors will be able to discover the second part of the works from 8th August to 17th August from the same collection. Then, on 18 and 24 August, Entropy series will be exhibited.
Victor Fota practices oil technique on canvas with Flemish influences and explores the relationship between man and technology. And technology is not only one of the central themes of his works, but also a means that will transform the experience of the art lovers who will visit the exhibition, one of them being a portal, a direct line to the artist who invites visitors in his universe. The exhibition is augmented by the Artivive App application, and the animations of the works were made by the Aural Eye video mapping studio.
