Ioan Nemţoi's glass installation “Who's afraid of Glass?” proposes a dialogue in the universal language of colour and shape, referring to its own history and artistic discourse. The vivid, pure, red and organic shape makes a powerful contrast with the urban environment.
“Who's afraid of Glass?” has the appearance of a squirming fantasy, a giant insect with thousands of legs - and asserts itself as an artist's personal interpretation of the primordial elements, water and fire - finally being one of Ioan Nemţoi's well known extravaganzas.

If you are in Vienna, do not miss tis wonderful event.
Many of you will know Dale Chihuly,
the famous American glass artist.
Ioan Nemţoi's work is equally interesting and exciting,
and he's right here in Vienna at the MuseumsQuarter,
ready to talk to you about his art.
I would have loved to write more
about this exhibition, in my own words.
Unfortunately I am a bit under various time pressures,
so I simply copied information and text
from the "Sampling Bucharest" website,
which will give you more information:

Autor Ionel Stoicescu
During the event “Bucharest Days in Vienna” the artist proposes the creation of an “ambulant” installation which presents to the audience a “Bucharest character”, a depository of material and spiritual symbols, who permanently re-shapes his cultural identity and is open to interaction with other cultures. By the shape and the way of “exposure” the artist intends to achieve direct communication with the street and to generate a large amount of interest from the Viennese public.
