A sculpture exhibition featuring a wide selection of Romanian sculptors and photographers will be open to the public as of tomorrow at the Contemporary Art Museum. The show is built on three visual communication kinds having wood as starting point and theme. The first section includes a series of photographs taken in the 1920’s and illustrating the historical fact of ravaging woods in northern Moldavia. The second is dedicated to sculpture with a selection including works in the museum’s patrimony, from George Apostu to Bela Crisan, from Ion Bitzan to Napoleon Tiron. The third section is an installation by sculptor Virgil Scripcariu, a reaction to a 2006 event that brought about the wipe-off from Bucharest of a whole orchard. Over the past 20 years, the Capital alone has lost over one million trees.
