Tăușeni monument

The artist Alexandru Chira, born in 1947 in Tauseni, Romania, defines himself, not without irony, “a master of utopia”.

His work has a unique symbolist dimension, his art is linked with subjects such as: personal identity, the environment, society, politics, the human body or the impact of technology.

“De-signs towards the sky for rain and rainbow”, initially nominated “Installation (magical-poetic) for remembrance, for suggesting (or if necessary, for invoking) the rain and the rainbow”, is situated in a village surrounded by hills and consists of 18 parts.

The village’s community institutions (church, school and cultural house) are disposed in triangle and represent the “village’s spiritual triangle”. The monumental assembly “De-signs towards the sky for rain and rainbow” is a magical-poetic installation for holidays with the purpose of calling the rain and the rainbow of brightness.

There are five other parts of the assembly:
“Mirror for Reflection”, on top of the “Memory Mirror” monument;
“De-sign of Bridge”, between the real and the virtual world;
“Ritualic Road”, which symbolically represents the access road (the path) to the work of art (the way of reception);
“Initiation paths ”, twelve paths of access, differently colored, intended for individual initiation;
The last one, “De-sign of Catare”, is located on the via-a-vis hill of the ensemble, the virtual axis of symmetry. Through its hexagonal frame one can see the entire structure of the monument assembly.
