1930 - 2014
Ştefan Bertalan is one of the most important protagonists of the Romanian neo-avant-garde. He co-founded the first experimental artists’ group in Romania, Group 111, and co-founded the group Sigma with Constantin Flondor and Doru Tulcan. Bertalan’s artistic practice focuses on the stages of plant growth, from seed to full bloom. He communicates this development through the medium of drawing, diary entries, photographs, and photograms. His work has been exhibited at La Kunsthalle, Mulhouse; La Biennale di Venezia; City Museum, Ljubljana; Espace Niemeyer – Siège du Parti communiste français, Paris; de Warande, Turnhout; Muzeul de Artă, Timişoara; Mogoșoaia Palace, Mogoșoaia; Johnen Galerie, Berlin; Constructivist Biennial, Nürnberg (1969); Sonja Henje Gallery, Oslo; Sala Kalinderu, Bucharest; Triennial of Decorative Arts, Milan; Richard Demarco Gallery, Edinburgh; and others.
