Traiul simplu (numit si “simplicitate voluntara”) inseamna o viata examinata – adica cea in care omul a decis ceea ce este principal sau “suficient”, scapand de restul. Trairea simpla nu implica respectarea unui set de reguli stricte, ci mai degraba il obliga pe individ sa fie consecvent cu sine insusi si sa delibereze.
Artistii pot urmarii simplicitatea vietii in diferite feluri, si din mai multe motive, cum ar fi revolta impotriva consumerismului, a materialismului sau a agitatiei urbane. In reprezentari, unii pot alege accentuarea “vesticizarii societatii”, in timp ce altii creeaza intr-o maniera simplista, din motive estetice personale sau un simt al corectitudinii.

Expozitia Simple Living va prezenta o serie de proiecte video (toate avand un caracter descriptiv), apartinand tinerei generatii de artisti din Republica Ceha, care vor arata ce e simplicitate si ce nu, si in ce masura aceasta simplicitate poate avea un efect transformator asupra discursului public despre arta contemporana.

ENGLISH VERSION

Simple living (aka voluntary simplicity) is about living an examined life – one in which one has determined what is important, or “enough,” discarding the rest. Living simply does not require adherence to a rigid set of rules, but rather it challenges the individual to live consciously and deliberately.
Artists can pursue simplicity in different ways and for a variety of motivations or reasons such as rejection of consumerism, removing the cultural noise or anti-materialism. Some may emphasize an explicit rejection of “westernised values”, while others choose to create in a simplistic manner for reasons of personal taste, a sense of fairness, or personal economy.

The exhibition Simple Living will offer a series of (video)works to illustrate what simplicity is – and is not – and how simplicity can have a transformative effect on the public discourse on contemporary art. The chosen works will be anchored both in “descriptive” practices and in the “plastic” uses of the video image.

Aimed to be an outline of the Czech young art scene, this exhibition will feature works from 15 artists living in Czech republic and is a collaboration between Czech Center Bucharest and National Brukenthal Museum Sibiu.
