“Across time – flowers and flower girls in Bucharest” exhibition opening


This project means to draw a parallel between the present and past, between inter-war and contemporary Bucharest, between flower girls of old and those today, between the atmosphere of the old Bucharest flower market and that in nowadays’ flower shops.

Florists practice this trade from generation to generation. The exhibition invites the public to embark on a journey “Across time” by means of images, ranging from archive photographs from the 1920s to contemporary snapshots.

The artists, Mirela Traistariu, Lucian Muntean and Justinian Scarlatescu, participants in the project, will document this journey using painting, photograph and feature reports.

The multimedia photo report depicts the flowers’ voyage from Holland to Romania, where they are taken over by bulk sellers and sold in the Bucharest flower market. The curator of the exhibition is Pavel Susara, while the distinguished guest of the inauguration is Constantin Balaceanu Stolnici.

The exhibition is running until April 12, Tuesday to Sunday, between 10 am and 6 pm.

Venue: Romanian Peasant Museum, 6 pm; Address: 3 Kiseleff Ave.; Tel. no.: 021.317.96.61
