Cosmin Haiaș deconstructs, adds, transforms. His works are compositions that combine multiple techniques and concepts, seemingly antagonistic, but deeply metaphorical, rooted in artistic and scientific knowledge.
The artist is himself a hybrid, exponential both for the engineering area (being a graduate of the Polytechnic University of Timișoara and engineer), and for the artistic field (with a doctorate in visual arts and numerous national and international exhibitions). This type of thinking that determines his artistic practice is, what the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze called, an interference of domains, on the principle of coexistence and transdisciplinarity.
During the “I see nothing” event, the artist presents two works in which we find his fascination for essential philosophical questions – “Where do we come from?”, “Where are we going?”, “What is our purpose” – as well as his critical and meditative way of observing the world and to draw new ways of looking at it. Between dystopia and techno relics, the works presented appeal to sensitivity, self-analysis and personal reflection, the viewer being challenged to immerse oneself in this environment, where interpretations hide under multiple visual and conceptual layers and are waiting to be discovered.
𝐌𝐕 𝐬𝐜𝐢-𝐚𝐫𝐭 is a contemporary art and science center founded by Politehnica University of Timișoara and META Spațiu, which aims to generate cross-disciplinary discovery, dialogue, and collaboration.
𝐌𝐄𝐓𝐀 𝐒𝐩𝐚𝐭̦𝐢𝐮 (active since 2016) develops contemporary art projects supporting and showcasing the work of some Romanian and international artist, with the aim of offering an insightful perspective on the Central European art scene. Until 2022, when it moved into its own space, META Spațiu operated as an ethereal art space, “parasitizing” other spaces such as museums, galleries, public locations, with the aim of developing strong collaborations to other art entities and actively contributing to promoting contemporary art and artists in various contexts.
Evenimentul face parte din Noaptea Albă a Galeriilor Timișoara
