An one hour film of the concert "Angel Orensanz.Dance of Fear" will be shown daily at the Foundation, starting Wednesday December 6. This opening marked a significant development in the career of Angel Orensanz. "Angel Orensanz.Dance of Fear" was a recent huge concert success at the National Conservatory of Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. In the film we see Yan Leus conducting the Georgian National Orchestra in his own composition to a rapturous audience.

The actual exhibition that surrounds the film presents one thousand drawings of Angel Orensanz until February 22, 2007.    

The exhibition is divided in five areas, corresponding to five citiesnand periods. New York and Paris appear more often since they are permanent locations for the artist. There are drawings from the late 80's and from this very Winter. The other cities with very specific reference are Toronto (1991-97), Rensburg (the capital of the German State of Schleswig-Holstein) during the Summer of 2000, and Venice (2000 -2006). This collection of 1000 drawings includes works on paper from 10 x 8 cms. to 1,50 x 4 meters.

The subject matter of these works on paper is ample and absorbing. The artist uses landscapes and terrifying war and execution themes. Most of these drawings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Italynduring 2001 and 2005, at the Alexander Pushkin Museum in Moscow and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg; at the Centro Recoleta in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and at the Kunstfabric (Berlin) and Blau Gallery in Dusseldorf. Britta Knitsch, an art critic from Dusseldorf, noted: "The subject matter is not the critical point of Orensanz's work. It is a relevant factor, a stepping stone, it is a synthesis of color and form in complete interpolation. Human bodies move against each other. These are bodies floating next to each other in a sea of fear".

Three drawings of the Rendsburg period have entered recently the permanent collection of the Ludwig-State Russian Museum of St. Petersburg. This double museum has presently on view a large exhibition of Orensanz's sculpture work titled "Sails of Departure-Sails of Arrival" that will stay open well into 2007.

The exhibition can be seen daily from 11 AM to 5 PM, except Saturdays and Sundays until February 22, 2007.
