Paul Neagu (1938-2004) firmly believed that sight is not the only sense with which to encounter art – for him, taste, smell, touch and sound were just as important. He disrupted every assumption of what art could be. He made tactile boxes, edible sculptures, projects with fictional collaborators, and performances defying gravity. He conceived his exhibitions as experiments, while his writings spiralled through art history and philosophy. His works on paper were simultaneously preparatory works, documentation and independent artworks. Neagu was a generator of ideas, and he pulled on his experience and ambition to rethink the possibilities of sculpture and perception.

Curators Gabriella Cardazzo and Giuliana Carbi Jesurun. Co-produced by Trieste Contemporanea; ArtSpace, Venice; and MARe/Museum of Recent Art, Bucharest in collaboration with The Paul Neagu Estate (UK), London; Ivan Galley, Bucharest; and  Institutul Român de Cultură şi Cercetare Umanistică, Venice.
