King Bronze: Sorina Jecza

"King Bronze" exhibition, opening on September 27th, offers a glimpse into sculptor Peter Jecza's body of work. It brings together not only his well-known sculptures but also sketches that have remained hidden from the public eye.

Almost 15 years after the artist's passing, Jecza Gallery, bearing his name, proudly showcases his creations. This exhibition unveils the authenticity of his creative process, marked by experimentation and trials, all refined by the timeless power of simplicity.

Curated by Sorina Jecza, the exhibition's journey is accompanied by a series of musical events, underlining the close bond between sculptural forms and sound. During the opening, Petre Inspirescu will present a composition inspired by Jecza's sculptures, soon available on vinyl. Additionally, Alexandra Guțu and Mischa Blanos will add their musical contributions to enhance the exhibition's atmosphere.

Peter Jecza (b. 1939 – d. 2009), renowned nationally and internationally, is regarded as a pioneer in contemporary Romanian sculpture. His body of work, comprising over 1200 cataloged pieces, explores a wide spectrum of sculptural styles. "King Bronze" serves as a condensed expression of this diversity.

In a year where Timișoara celebrates its cultural prominence in Europe, this exhibition also recognizes Peter Jecza's enduring legacy. Through his art, he forever linked his name with the city, leaving behind a symbol of balance, harmony, and beauty.

The Interart Triade Foundation proudly carries forward this artist's remarkable legacy.

This project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in the year 2023" and is funded by the City of Timișoara, through the Center for Projects.
