The new edition of the Sculpture Workshop held at Cucuteni, has added new works of arts that increased in number year by year and completed each other, maintaining their singleness and still forming a great sculptural park.
Deeply touched by the ideatic burden of the Neolithic king, the artists, by means of love and creativity , have turned the hill and the valley into a sacred place of self oblivion, surrendering to the laws of cosmic time, either with a classic attitude towards the volume or being more keen on experiments. The most expressive feature was the dialogue between the matter and the ephemeral artistic experiment, two worlds colliding but completing the artistic vision of the artists.

The timetable of the Symposium on the Monumental Sculpture focuses on joining the semantic nature of the sacred, less rigorously anchored in a religious tradition with aesthetic ideas that exclude the massive materialization. But the schedule of the workshop involves other commitments, too. One of them is the updating of the ‘social plastic’ concerns (Beuys), aiming to a universe whose dissolution seems an automatism of analysis, interpretations and social prospections, and any salvation of it appears to be futile. I refer to the vast rural universe, with its space where the slow but sure intrusion of the mediatic and commercial pressure and of other social relationships than those of a ‘natural community’, leading to the loss of the traditional values.

The Axart Foundation ( lead by Sabin Dranceanu-religious painter) and the mayoralty of Cucuteni under the leadership of Mihai Tun, a remarkable social militant have put into practice, with me as a curator, a timetable that contradicts the ideas of inevitable degradation of the rural life as a functional social and cultural unit.
