BIOGRAPHY

Albert Kaan lives and works in Bucharest. Born in 1993, he graduated from the Sculpture Department at the National University of Arts in Bucharest in 2016. His artistic discourse is strongly related with his urban experiences. He combines industrial materials, such as iron and tar with the more traditional modelling clay, plaster or charcoal to create spatial structures of generous sizes that can be as well exhibited outdoor, in gardens and parks or indoor, in white-cube or industrial spaces. He also mixes sounds and video-projections with industrial structures, creating spectacular effects in live performances. He is interested in ecology, urban culture, music and, as any young artist from the new generation, dreams of a better and healthier world. His artworks have been exhibited mostly in Bucharest and around the country in different academic events. Since 2016, he is represented by 418 Gallery and he participated in two group shows.

In the summer of 2017, he has been part of the 10th Edition of Cetate Arts Danube Artist-in-Residence program, together with Petrica Stefan, Stefan Radu Cretu, Constantin Luser, Ignazio Mortellaro and Stefan Papco.
