André Cadere (1934, Polonia - 1978, Paris, Franța)

André Cadere was born in Poland in 1934 during his father’s diplomatic mandate, but grew up in Romania. He managed to leave for Paris in 1968 and until his early death from cancer in 1978, Cadere was a nomadic presence in the European art world. He was best known for his Round Bars of Wood - long poles made of coloured wooden cylindrical units that he started making in early ‘70. The colours on each rod were arranged according to a system devised by Cadere, yet each stick contained one anomaly, as he succinctly put it, “My art is the situation of my work in the art world.” Cadere regularly disturbed the status quo by carrying the bar close to his body everywhere he went and by bringing his bar to the openings of other artists, whether he was invited to do so or not.
