ROSS + ROSS Gallery is proud to announce that the opening of the SWARTE solo art exhibition “One square meter of roots” in Stuttgart / Germany was a great success. Please join us in sharing this special event far and wide.
It was one night in Bucharest, during one of the short visits I sometimes do there, in order to meet old friends and catch up with what is still going on all over Europe. I was invited to an official dinner and suddenly and somehow unexpectedly I met them: the SWARTE girls. We chatted about here and there, life in Romania, future of the world and so it came up an amazing vision they had about the world’s face of tomorrow. “One square meter of roots” reduces us to the basics of humanity and rebuilds the strong pylons we can count on while on crisis. They are the fundamental little things that define us as human beings and help us building up confidence for the rest of our days. It was not only the concept in itself, the courage they had to express and construct but also the way in which they decided to firstly respect
