Sculptor Constantin Brancusi will be celebrated at Bucharest’s Cinema Scala this evening, an event part of the artist’s 137th birthday celebrations. The program includes original evocations and testimonies about the life of the great Romanian artist by means of full documentaries or footage and the Stefan Mihailescu photography exhibition including the reproductions of Brancusi’s works and pictures taken during writer Laurian Stanchescu’s journey from Hobita to Paris, on Constantin Brancusi’s trail from his place of birth to the French capital. Laurian Stanchescu, the man behind the action aimed at Brancusi’s remains being sent back to his homeland, made a brief presentation of the Romanian sculptor’s tragic destiny, and his concern to fulfill the late artist’s last wish, which was to be buried in his native land. Romanian-born Canadian actress Claudia Motea will perform the recital “Remember Brancusi”, along with Roxana Croitoru and Radu Zatreanu. Soprano Felicia Filip will sing at the event, alongside Radu Fornea and the K1 ethnic rock band, Cornelia Tihon and violinist Catalin Popa.
A central figure of modern art, Constantin Brancusi is hailed as one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century.
