La masa CLUJ

La Masa Cluj Airport 09th July – 31st December 2019


Cluj-Airport, German Consulate Sibiu and Kunsthaus 7B in partnership with the network of the Europen Cultural Institutes registered in Romania - EUNIC are  offering a colourful table of paintings photographs and object art related to the thematic of food.

Six artists from six countries who contributed to the contemporary Transilvanian food are showing works related to the thematic, most of the works are created especially for this exhibition.

Being aware that the list of contributing countries, ethnical and regional influences is not complete, the countries represented in this art-exhibition are just an example.

The artists are János Eiffler, Budapest / Hungary, Klaus Pichler, Vienna / Austria, Patrizia Casagranda, Trento / Italy, Ingrid Weiszman, Berlin / Germany, Nicolas Friess, Paris / France and Albert Sofian, Sibiu / Romania showing their contemporary insight on the thematic.

The idea is to combine food and art especially on an airport, because airports and arts are symbols for freedom and over-winding borders, as well as connecting people. There is aesthetic in arts, an aesthetic in travelling and in meeting again friends and family, what happens usually at airports. As well as there is aesthetic in food. At the end, it is about life-style and enjoying life.

The exhibition with the same artist is parallel shown at the airport in Sibiu.

The artworks will be on display at Cluj-Airport from 09th  July – 31st December 2019 at Cluj-Airport Central Hall.

We wish you a pleasant time to watch the exhibition, happily encounters with your friends and family, good meals and pleasant travelling!

Thomas Emmerling, curator
