Valeriu Schiau nu este un artist confortabil. Valeriu Schiau nu are un vis
frumos. Trauma si exorcizarea autoreferentiala fac parte constant din
discursul sau artistic. Esecul paternitatii, ruptura familiala, tensiunea
celor mai intime relatii interumane, dar si observatia asupra traumei
familiale ca fenomen social sunt reluate ca un pattern ritualic in
lucrarile acestui artist, nascut in Republica Moldova, activ de mai bine de
un deceniu in Bucuresti, Romania.

Instalatia The Dream / Visul vine in completarea expozitiilor sale
precedente (Nascut in URSS, Copilul invizibil, Lobotomia, Probleme
personale) in care apare recurent imaginea copilului nascut sau nenascut
facand trecerea de la povestea personala la aspectele traumatice la care
sunt supusi copiii pe de o parte in contextul unui regim politic opresiv
care a permis crearea lagarelor de concentrare, iar pe de alta intr-o
societate foarte actuala care traiste tot mai acut consecintele negative
ale globalizarii si care reactioneaza prea putin in favoarea combaterii
violentei. Violenta a devenit un soi de act normativ nu doar in randul
populatiilor adulte. Mediul jocurilor on-line, lumea virtuala in care se
refugiaza copiii si adolescentii, dar mai ales relatiile conflictuale in
familie, abuzul emotional si fizic, divortul parintilor, factorii scolari,
autoritatea excesiva, corelate cu alte probleme emotionale sunt factori
care pot duce la variate tragedii printre care suicidul ocupa un loc
important.

Mesajul expozitiei lui Valeriu Schiau este deplin asumat. Artistul
impartaseste o poveste personala, ”vise” a caror radicalitate emotionala nu
poate lasa pe nimeni nepasator si, totodata, atinge un subiect valabil
oriunde in lume la aceasta ora legat de inconstienta umanitatii fata de
copiii sai expusi unor realitati politice si sociale dure in care arma nu
este deloc o jucarie.

Valeriu Schiau is not a confortable artist. Valeriu Schiau does not have a
beautiful dream. Trauma and self-referential exorcism are part of his
constant artistic discourse. The failure of parenthood, the family break,
the tenssion within most private human relations, but also the observation
on family trauma as social phenomenon are  revived like a ritualic pattern
in the work of this artist born in the Republic of Moldova, active for more
than one decade in Bucharest, Romania.

The Dream installation comes in addition to his previous exhibitions (Born
in USSR, The Invisible Child, Lobotmy, Personal Issues) in which the image
of the born or unborn child is recurrent connecting the personal story with
the traumatic aspects that children are subjected to on one hand in the
context of an oppressive political regime that allowed the creation of
concentration camps, and on the other in a very current society that is
living more and more accurately the negative consequences of globalization
and slightly reacts in favor of fighting against violence. Violence has
become some sort of a normative act not only among adults. The on-line game
environment, the virtual world in which children and adolescents get
refuge, but mostly the conflictual relationships within the family,
emotional and physical abuse, parents divorce, school factors, excesive
authority, linked with other emotional issues, are factors that can lead to
various tragedies among which suicide has an important place.

Valeriu Schiau’s exhibition message is fully committed. The artist shares a
personal story, "dreams" whose radical emotion can not let anyone
indifferent and also approaches a valid topic anywhere in the world at this
time related to human irresponsibility for their children exposed to harsh
social and political realities in which gun is anything but a toy.
