At Anca Poterasu Gallery in Bucharest (RO) is now ongoing the group exhibition "Ecology of the After Life", on display until 1st of July, curated by William Ewing, including artworks by the great comtemporary artists Matei Bejenaru, Ioana Cîrlig, Aurora Király, Iosif Király and Delia Popa.
The opening included a AFAR Talk, a discussion about photography with curator William Ewing in dialogue with artist Iosif Király, followed by the opening of the group exhibition.

"The curator-artist discussion focused on photography - its rich past, turbulent present and uncertain future(s). The dialogue was followed by the opening of the group exhibition 'Ecology of the After Life', a project that revolves around recurrent and obsessive questions regarding human existence, science, nature's resilience, and the echoes of our actions" - the gallery informs.

"The exhibition serves as a metaphor for the regeneration of life as a whole, exploring not only human existence but also the intricate connections between organisms that sustain life on Earth. From Aurora Király's landscapes to Delia Popa's introspective reflections, Iosif Király's blurring of reality and fantasy, Ioana Cîrlig's documentation of coal miners, and Matei Bejenaru's chronicles of forgotten spaces, Ecology of the After Life contemplates the interconnectedness of living beings." - curator William Ewing
