A film by Matei Bejenaru about ballerina Irinel Liciu

In Room M1, free entrance

The visual poem Abyss explores the enigmatic and charismatic personality of  the dancer Irinel Liciu, first soloist of the Romanian Opera ballet in Bucharest in the 1950s-’60s. Shot on film and using archive footages and photos from the National Film Archive, Agerpress News Agency, and Secolul 21 Magazine archive, Abyss is an essay on the condition of the artist and the relationship with his/her art and life.

Matei Bejenaru (b. 1963) is a visual artist and professor of photography and video art at “George Enescu” National University of ArtsIasi. He is the founder and artistic director of Peripheric Biennial for Contemporary Art in Iasi (1997 to 2008). His recent projects explore the
politics of representation through the prism of photography, video and public performance. Using documentary photography and film, he generates hybrid art projects at the confluence of visual arts, poetry, experimental music and scientific research.
