synopsis

The exploration of pattern-making is based on a comparison of dynamic forms found in nature – reflections, wrinkles, or ripples – filmed in detail with a handheld camera, and shots of the texture of woven carpets and fabrics. It culminates in the performative action of wearing, drying, and mounting the material, perhaps a canvas ready for further creation.

biography

Doru Tulcan (1943) was one of the members of Sigma. He continued to collaborate with Constantin Flondor even after the collapse of the artists' collective. His paintings and photographic and film records of his installations and outdoor events are represented in Romanian and international galleries.
