Romanian brand: the Ie (Romanian traditional shirt)



"Artessentia" Cultural Association will be organizing, until September 2015, the "Art at the White Tower" curatorial project encompassing various cultural activities for promoting the traditional folk costume. In this context, the project aims at restoring the traditional symbolism of Tara Barsei through contemporary art. The centre of attention is the most important piece of the Romanian traditional costume: the ie.

Discovering the Ie

Within the events inspired by the celebration of Ia, a painting workshop called "Discovering the IE" was organized, where everyone who wanted to learn what kind of "signs and inscriptions grandma used to sew on the ie" was invited. The workshop was for children over the age of 7.
The next day, the event "Sanzienele (the gold-haired fairies) coming down to the White Tower" took place, where the "Small Village Saint Andrew" Art, Craft and Spirituality Centre from Brasov was invited and who organized "In memoriam Ioan Sorin Apan ? music and video projections" in honour of the initiator of the Small Village.

Living picture at the White Tower

The organizers invited the participants to the event to wear a ie, and everyone who knew or not the professor Ioan Sorin Apan was invited to watch a short video presenting who he was and, especially, what he had inculcated in the hearts of his students, namely the thriving traditional culture. That turned out to be an impressive moment, because the young boys and girls went along braiding crowns made up of Sanziene flowers, contemplating the sky opening in a static image on the White Tower stairs, with saxophone notes played by Alexandru Gecse in the background.

Key moment

The young people quoted Ioan Sorin Apan talking about the ie: "This is the true Romanian brand, the traditional folk costume, by means of which the Romanian people knew how to show off their values over time, during the key moments of their existence; A view of things, already theological, that this costume also symbolizes is that the human being is able to accept the unseen world starting from the symbols in the seen world and therefore creating himself a path to God".
