International Forum of young marble sculptors in Carrara
Article published on 25-07-2019
The City of Carrara, Italy, in collaboration with the Club for UNESCO “Carrara dei Marmi” organize the 5th edition of the Competition "International Forum of young marble sculptors in Carrara. Artistic voices: peace, fraternity, solidarity."
Iulian Cristea, the candidate proposed by Alumnus Club for UNESCO, is one of the five finalists who have the chance to take part in a training session between 2-20 September, 2019, in Carrara. During the 3 weeks of training, he will develop marble sculptural techniques.
Iulian created a piece of art entitled “Regaining Peace in a World of Chaos”. His sculpture reflects the coexistence between order and chaos. Peace is an omnipresent element, but in a world of chaos it must be rediscovered and regained.
Iulian Cristea explains his work as follows: ,,My attempt to exploit the contemporary artistic current is the obvious visual contrast between the organic and the strictly geometric forms, exploring a side of the contemporaneity in which no rules are accepted. I create sculptures, installations and drawings, anatomical structures on geometric trunks, presented in a diffuse group of cells and nerve fibers that form often strange organic objects.”
