Soron következő koncertünk meghivottja az Olah Dezső Trio, aki Bartók Béla szellemiségét lopja be kicsit a Kastély falai közé. A szervezők így nyilatkoznak: "Bartók a magyar jazz számára olyan vonatkozási ponttá vált, amelyet az újabb jazztörténetek hangsúlyosabban kell majd figyelembe vegyenek. Maga Bartók Magyarországon élve még idegenkedve viszonyult a jazzhez – értve ezalatt a korai swinget. Azt a klasszikus zenéből merítő és a népzene által többrétűen inspirált koncertmuzsikát, amiről most szó lesz, természetesen sem Bartók, sem kortársai még csak el sem képzelhették... "

Újabb fejezetet nyitottunk kulturális kínálatunkban. Ezúttal a Living Castle eseménysorozatunk által egy élő koncertsorozat házigazdái lehetünk, amely új szint, új érzésvilágot lop be a kastély évszázados falai közé. Baróti lelkes zenészekből álló csapat által megálmodott és tető alá hozott Jazz+A többiek koncertsorozat társrendezői lehetünk . Örömmel fogadtuk a felkérést ezúttal is. Az első élő koncert a Kolozsvári Inocsényka zenekaré volt, aki 2014-ben több kategóriában is nyert a Nagyszebeni Nemzetközi Jazz Fesztiválon. 

Így nyilatkoztak a résztvevők a kezdeményezésről:" Erdővidéken ritkán tapasztalható élményt jelentett a Daniel-kastély évszázados falai között tartott, „műfajok közötti kalandozás.”"

Now ,in my country ,Iran ,when I open window every day ,a birds sing song ;koko...koko...koko again !where is Transylvania ? Where is Daniel Castle? And where are my Romanian friends?! 
It is true that the birds everywhere, around the world sing sang with the same language….

Dear participants at the NAPTelep
Whenever we are deeply involved in the workflow and the days are passing one after another we find ourselves lacking the time to comprehend our feelings and impressions. It is only after we have gone home we are overwhelmed by unexpected feelings of affliction that tend to grow stronger.
Moreover, it was a huge opportunity and would like to thank for it to our Iranian fellows, for giving us an insight into the environmental art via their works and their presentations. The harmonious collaborations and the longterm exchange of concepts make me think that have created a strong bound in between the two cultures, a bound upon which we can place a foundation and build the future. Although, physically we are far from one another, we are still able to think together in a spiritually common ground for the sake of the nature and for the universal goodness.
 
Thanks to Alpár & Réka who made it possible for the common tongue to become the language of art that is independent of nation and space. Thanks to Lilla & Attila who received all of us into their marvelous home and gave us a place to materialize our visions.
​​
Dear friends I hope we will all meet again soon!

I am working at my studio in Tehran.and  after a couple of weeks ,i try to whrite something about my trip to transylvania and staying in Daniel castle  during NAP workshop. but it is a sweet truth for me that i am still a little bit numb ,like a lazy morning after a drunk night ,or a comfuse awakening  from a foggy dream.and it is always a different experience, to spend days and nights in a castle ,and listening to whisperring bricks, and tuch flirting grass every where  and then stare to an infinite blue above your head!  and as follow the concept of living spaces at living castles,you would find living souls who share their sky ,ground,mind,and happiness with each other and with you ,and this is the reason that when you leave them with a hug ,and they farewell you with a smile and a good wish,then it is not so easy to forget them,there.
My dear friends in transylvania, i rise my glass from many many kilometers far from you,for you ,egeszsegere!

M-am născut în 1964 la Tîrgu-Mureş. Aveam cinci ani, cînd am văzut prima fotografie color şi în aceeaşi perioadă am urmărit aselenizarea primilor oameni. Cele două evenimente aveau să mă marcheze şi să mă fascineze pentru o viaţă întreagă. La vîrsta de doisprezece ani am început să învăţ fotografie şi de atunci nu contenesc să învăţ cîte ceva. Am păţit la fel şi cu astronomia, tot timpul doresc să învăţ despre cerul înstelat. Mi-a venit foarte uşor să îmbin cele două pasiuni, puteam să le practic simultan în astrofotografie. Acest hobbi însemnă pentru mine un fel de a fi şi un fel de a gîndi, prin obiectivul aparatului văd altfel lumea din jur. Fotografiile mele încearcă să îmbine peisajul creat de mîna omului cu minunile bolţii cereşti, evidenţiind astfel că suntem locuitorii cosmosului. În acelaşi timp, prin tehnica fotografică înfăţişez cerul nocturn cum nu-l mai putem vedea din cauza poluării atmosferice şi poluării luminoase. Aş dori să atrag atenţia asupra splendorii universului ce se află deasupra capului nostru, poate că înzestrîndu-ne cu o conştiinţă de cetăţeni ai cosmosului, vom avea o atitudine mult mai responsabilă faţă de semenii noştri şi de lumea noastră.

Munzlinger Attila

1964-ben születtem Marosvásárhelyen. Ötéves voltam, amikor az első színes fényképet láttam, és ekkortájt szálltak le a Holdra az első emberek. Mind a két esemény egy életre meghatározta gondolkodásomat. Tizenkét évesen elkezdtem fotográfiát tanulni, azóta kisebb-nagyobb kihagyásokkal folyamatosan tanulom. Ugyanez a helyzet a csillagászattal is: állandóan igyekszem tanulni valamit az égboltról. A fotográfiát és a csillagászatot nem volt nehéz összekötni, egyszerre foglalkozhattam mindkét számomra kedves időtöltéssel.  Az asztrofotó ugyanakkor számomra nem csak időtöltés, hanem gondolkodási forma és világnézet is egyben, a lencsén keresztül másképp érzékelem a világot, mint szabad szemmel. Fotóimon igyekszem összekötni az ember alkotta tájat a csillagos égbolt csodáival, hangsúlyozva ezáltal kozmoszlakó mivoltunkat, másrészt a fényképeken úgy lehet ábrázolni a csillagos eget, ahogy manapság már nem látni azt, a sok légszennyezés és fényszennyezés miatt. Szeretném felhívni a figyelmet a fejünk felett pompázó univerzumra, hátha kozmikus polgári öntudattal felelősebben fogunk viszonyulni egymáshoz és világunkhoz.

Péter Alpár 1976-ban született Sepsiszentgyörgyön.

b2ap3_thumbnail_edit.jpg

A Living Castle - Living Spaces nevű projekt művészeti vezetője magyar részről. Művészi tanulmányait Sepsiszentgyörgyön a Művészeti Liceumban kezdte. Romániai képzőművészek országos szövetségének tagja, majd az Erdélyi Művészet és Örökség Egyesület elnöke lett.

Péter Alpár hitvalása munkájárol:

"Több, mint tíz éve foglalkoztat a háromdimenziós tér, mint a művészet megnyilvánulási helyszíne. Először zárt tereket installáltam be, és az átformált térben hajtottam végre performanceokat. Ahogy ez a folyamat egy sajátos szellemi úttá nemesedett számomra, úgy tágult a tér, és átlépve a kiállító terek hűvös eleganciáját, kiléptem a természetbe, ahol a művész mikrokozmosza találkozik és megnyilvánul a végtelen makrokozmoszban."

b2ap3_thumbnail_alma-a-fa-alatt.jpg

Egy hosszan kitartott gesztus, amit megszakít egy történés. A 33 éves előadó odaszegeli az asztalhoz az arra négyzetformában kirakott 33 almát. A kalapácsütés ritmusára a még szabad almák elmozdulnak. A folyamat során a négyzet lassan elveszti formáját. Determinálódik. Mozdulatlan csend, kalapácsütések, majd újra csend.

b2ap3_thumbnail_meditacios-ter.jpg

Egy gondolat Szögyal Rinpocse tibeti buddhista tanítótól – „Az élet és a halál csak a tudatban létezik” – együtt a fehér térben vibráló fekete kockák és üveglapok merev ritmusával. Az így létrejövő tér csendjét a befogadó tudatának viszonyulása tölti meg értelemmel, vagy semmisíti meg.

b2ap3_thumbnail_feher.jpg

A performer belemártja mindkét kezét az asztalon található vörös és zöld festékes tányérba. A zöld bal, és vörös jobb kezével összegyűr és két ökle közé szorít egy fehér papírlapot. Piros ököl, meggyötört fehér papír, zöld ököl, semleges szürke izoming. A performer kilöki az öklei szorításából a papírt és kezeit összesúrolja, a kézmosás mozdulataival. Piros és zöld szürkévé semlegesítik egymást.

The castle in the property of the Rauber family (19th century)

b2ap3_thumbnail_Nvtelen.png

The castle in Olasztelek, showing the modifications efectuated in the 1840's, by the baron Ferdinánd (Nándor) Rauber: the second floor arcades of the gallery were demolished, the windows became semicircular, and the „enormous hall” of the second floor was divided into several rooms (see the sketch with construction periods in the previous panel), theoretical reconstruction

The daughter of Lőrinc Daniel (baron from 1751, †1780), Josepha, married Miklós Rauber de Plankenstein (†1817). The soldier with Carinthian origins came in
Transylvania as a lieutenant of the Border-Warden Regiment, established under Empress Maria Theresa. Soon he became a captain, and after that reached the colonel rank. By marrying Josepha Daniel he became the proprietor of the castle in Olasztelek (despite to the old family tradition, according to which the feminin line didn't partake from the paternal goods).

b2ap3_thumbnail_rauber-nandor.png

„Ferdinánd Rauber, or Nándor, as he subsrcried himself, or the stumpy baron, as he was called by the people, lived in the pristine nest at Olasztelek, as a keeper. He was the stumpy baron, because he lost his arm in a hunting.” –wrote about him in 1901 László Kőváry. The baron participated in the Revolution of 1848–1849, and in this period his castle in Olasztelek was robbed. The baron never got married, and died in 1883 without successors.

The portrait of Gábor Daniel (1824–1915). He was a member of the Vargyas-line of the Daniel family, he married Mária Rauber in 1853, daughter of Rauber Károly (1790–1869). With the death of Ferdinánd (Rauber Károly’s brother) she got the castle in Olasztelek, pursuant to this the building passed again in the propriety of the Daniel de Vargyas family.

b2ap3_thumbnail_befalazot-kapubehajto.png

In 1884 Gábor Daniel and Mária Rauber (1831–1887) renovated the castle in Olasztelek, and comemorated these works with inscriptioned stone plaques (placed near the old gate, at the two sides of the 1649 stone door-frame, also placed here at that time probably).

This article is based on the exposition ''1680.ro or 350 years of illustrated castle - history", financed by a grant offered by Island, Lichtenstein and Norway.

The ,,enormous hall" of the castle, decorated with wall paintings around the year 1680, detail (teoretical reconstruction)

 

The wall researching of the castle revealed that the second floor of the long wing usedto be one enormous representative chamber (suitable for family events, weddings or important meetings). The walls of this hall were decorated with al secco paintings (scenes in floral framings), completed by 1680, most of them very fragmentary preserved. After the scenes were uncovered, during the restoration work (2010–2014) we tried to elucidate the thematics of these representations: apparently they form a sort of family gesta, depicting events inspired by the history of the Daniel family (especially important episodes from the career of the Olasztelek family line members).

b2ap3_thumbnail_1-fenykep.png

The scene depicts the presentation of the Transylvanian Principalities tribute at the Ottoman Empire: we can see the sultan, the transylvanian delegate, the bags with gold in a chest, the horse and the falcons were presents for the sultan - this scene probably refers to the legation of Mihály Daniel (†1641) to Constantinople in 1638

b2ap3_thumbnail_2-fenykep.png

Detail of a wedding scene - probably it could be linked to the fact that in 1651 János Daniel (†1654) was appointed host (master of ceremonies) for Prince Zsigmond Rákóczi’s wedding (with Princess Maria Henrietta of Pfalz, kept in Sárospatak, Hungary)

b2ap3_thumbnail_3-fenykep.png

Detail of a festive event: probably a banquet(?) organized after an important affair, which took place at the princely court - the face of the person on the left suggest some similarity to a portrait of Prince Gábor Bethlen from 1620 (see Lucas Kilian’s engraving)

The genealogy of the Daniel de Vargyas and Rauber de Plankenstein families (highlighting the proprietors of the castle)

The ascension of the Daniel de Vargyas family is closely linked to the career of Mihály Daniel (†1641). Starting with the year 1606, he held more and more important functions: captain of Orbai Seat, vicecaptain of Udvarhely and the Three Seats: Sepsi, Kézdi and Orbai, and in 1622 Prince Gábor Bethlen assigned him as the supreme royal judge of the Three Seats. In 1625 be became member of the princely Board, in 1630 he was the senechal of Catharina de Brandenburg, suzerain of Transylvania, and in 1638 he lead a legation to the Ottoman Court, with the annual tribute of the Principality.He probably found necessary to establish a new residence in Olasztelek for one of his two sons, so the newly built manor was put at the disposal of János Daniel , known as the founder of the new (of Olasztelek) family line. János Daniel (†1654) had a similar career with his father, the renowned diplomat of the Rákóczi’s at the end of his life became the supreme royal judge of the Three Seats.

b2ap3_thumbnail_alaprajz.png

The first nobiliary residence of the Daniel family in Olasztelek, the so called „Bethlen Castle” (around 1640, 1649 - labeled nr. 1.) and the „Daniel Castle” (started in the middle of the 17th century -marked with nr. 2) in a cadastrial map from the end of the 19th century.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Ajto.png

Door frame from carved stone, dated in 1649, with the family blazon and the initials of János Daniel (initially placed in the so called „Bethlen Castel” - nr. 1.)

So far he has held several solo exhibitions and participated in several, international painting and new art exhibitions and competitions as well as group exhibitions in Iran. Alahkhani Karim also member of the board of connoisseurs of the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Kerman.

 

Alahkhani Karim's statement about his art:

''I've also found that to create a work of art, its not the authenticity of the materials , but an idea that works differently and more lasting. So I look for my environmental concerns in the field of modern art and the more specific "environmental art", in the paradox between city life and the elements of the nature. I generally work to highlight the problem of eliminating the nature of urban life and mechanization of life.That's why it’s the selection of materials that serves the idea!''

Since 2005, As a member of "open 5" he performed many group works in environmental art.

Mahmoud Maktabi’s statement about his art:

„I am interested in blending my body in the environment physically and using the human body as part of the work. The unlimited investigation in the environment deepens as you get more absorbed in nature and as you search more. (…) To me life is an opportunity to discover the concept of beauty that constantly attracts me toward the source and nature of things. My confrontation to the environment and its infinite immensity has shown me a way to observe this beauty from a different way. What allows me to keep going in my work is the process to explore and to create using my physical self.”
