Anaid Art Gallery was established in 2004, and it is a portfolio private gallery designated for contemporary art. Since the beginning, gallery’s goal was to represent a benchmark in the global art world, to introduce Romanian artists to the international art market and also to facilitate the promotion of international artists in Romania. Operating on two levels and following a circular path, the gallery has 120sqm designated for temporary exhibition of contemporary art.
The small installations designed by Raluca Arnăutu remind us of Surrealist objects. The artist rummages around drawers, boxes and she is imagining things. Each object, no matter whether it is a drawing pin, an old velvet ribbon or a fragment from a hypothetical drawing, tells a story. Projecting her own phantasms within her works is initiated by arbitrary encounter with the object, leading to the apparition of a fantastic universe where multitude of colours given by various materials and an unusual association of textures and materiality create a world full of mystery.
