The Sense of Meaning is an Orienting Reflex is the launch exhibition of the Ștefan Ungureanu catalogue, Ant Generated Future, coordinated by Ioana Marinescu and published by Pandora M Publishing (part of the Editorial Group Trei) in October 2017, at Cărturești Carusel.

For Ștefan Ungureanu time is punctuated by the works he has been making. Consequently, the work of art becomes a unit of measurement, a monad that structures his inner life.

In this regard, the catalogue proves itself to be a new kind of tool, a new kind of map, temporally oriented by a new type of charting, a punctuated equilibrium that helps both the artist and the viewer to navigate through Ungureanu’s time units.
