© 2017 The Fact Finder
The Fact Finder presented, during a pop-up event, an insight into the process employed by Romanian artist Ciprian Mureșan, in making a replica of the "Last Judgement" mural wing, from the UNESCO protected site in Voroneț. Ciprian Mureșan's take on this medieval masterpiece, shown at the Plan B Gallery (Berlin), has a contemporary dynamics, in the most literal way, as the wall that bears the replica moves back and forth inside the gallery space. This reminds us of how a church was saved in Bucharest, during Ceaușescu's urban planning, by moving it on tracks, to make way for a boulevard.
At The Fact Finder, we will have a closer look into the process of reenacting the whole out of fragments, by browsing a photographic archive created during the initial field research. Just as with the way of presentation at Plan B Gallery, where the wall moves, here the fragments are somehow off, never quite matching, reminding us of the displacement of religious buildings and, one can say, of Christianism's relevance throughout time.
