(...) Beijing Konditorei creates the perfect mood for short and precise dates, while using the imprecise texture of jelly in order to create confusion between looks and taste. Surrounded by an abundance of textures, colors, art and handicraft, Konditorei uses the minimum of ingredients in order to offer a clear punctual experience. (...).

(...) Artists from China and Romania, with practices so different they could bare any connection to each other, are putting together a megamix of artworks, but also of curated personal items for sale at clearance prices*. It is irrelevant if the exhibition becomes an extension of the sale, or the other way around – objects and non-objects shake hands and make peace. (...).

Cristian Răduță, Daniela Pălimariu & Jin Ningning at LISTE Basel with Sandwich
(...) At LISTE, we are showing two of the founders of Sandwich and one spectacular Chinese artist whose work is transgressing the booth space.
The three artists work in very different ways. However, we selected an element suggestive of a survival kit from each: the possibility to rocket-launch animals into space as a last resort for continuation of species (Răduță), the humanizing of Ikea-designed storage boxes (Pălimariu) or a portrait of apathy as ultimate resource (Ningning). Whichever of these solutions we choose to apply, one thing we know for sure: Sandwich will break through. (...).

solo show at Nicodim Gallery Los Angeles
(...) Cristian Răduță’s animals march in droves. A Noah’s Ark of improvised genetic anomalies populate Nicodim Gallery like an emergency spawning ground, but no two are paired or exactly alike. Apelikenesses can be seen from one angle and a shuffle of animalian ciphers from the other. Răduță is their shepherd, bringing to each form a unique trembling glory. This harmonious pattern of origin stories—both raw and cooked—ludically swirl in the artist’s grand tale of a double helix. His creatures are echos of archetypes, songs from a golden record played deep in outer space. (...).

solo show at Nicodim Gallery Bucharest
(...) A row of exhausted pseudo-animals seems to be in the homestretch of a marathon. With their long polystyrene necks, they remain in-line, civilized, desperately glancing ahead without even noticing us. They are convinced that they will find their answers and their liberation on the other side of the wall, and they are ready to do anything to get there (...).

(...) Another way of working with modest materials drawn from everyday life can be found in the practice of Cristian Răduță, who incorporates into his sculptural objects waste materials such as polystyrene, paper, plastic, or tin. The result is a type of bricolage-sculpture, which, on the one hand, contains references to the utopia of space exploration and the failures inherent to such ambitious enterprises, and, on the other, concretely evokes the space junk that will orbit the Earth forever. Another feature to be found in the practice of both artists is humour: Dan Perjovschi draws on a direct, acidic kind of humour, while in the work of Cristian Răduță the humour arises from the discrepancy created between the grandeur of plans to “conquer” space and the poverty of the materials the artist employs."

THE ANATOMY OF A JOURNEY is showing a fictional travelogue in which different characters face various contingencies. A tin character, constrained by the surroundings, lands forced with a parachute in the gallery space, an aircraft of which engine combines a flower as a propeller, un bouquet of planets helped by a ladder to suspend itself or a hat choses to be worn by a star to personalise itself.

(...) Cristian Răduță prepares such a rocket in the name of a community where he does not and probably will never belong to: that of the most privileged, of the 1%, of the penthouse apartments, the private islands and private jets. In their name, he is making provisions for one of the emergency measures to be taken in case of Earth evacuation: making sure that the demand for palm-trees on the next colonized planet is covered.
