Lot Notes

Andrei Cădere has been reclaimed as a prominent figure in the history of conceptual and post-minimalist art. Although best known for his round bars of wood, during the 1960s he was interested in colour theory and produced vibrant, op-art inflected abstract painting. In 1972 he was the enigmatic artist Harald Szeemann invited and then banned from Documenta 5. Following this episode, institutional critique and the concept of mobility became central to his work. He often played with the expectations of authenticity that greeted an artist from the geopolitical periphery.
