Michael Jackson “On the wall”

Haven’t been here for a good looong time. Not the best excuse, but work kinda took my whole summer and tried to enjoy as much as I could the moments off work.

For example, recently I finally managed to go to National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square to see Michael Jackson exhibition – ”On the wall” . It was an exhibition I couldn’t miss.!!In the first place because,hey, we are talking about Michael Jackson here, the king of pop. Also, BOSS sponsorships this event and of ocurse, as being part of  this BOSS family I was really curious.

Second reason but not the last: because I start beeing part of the event once I had the pleasure to style some of the special guests, celebrities invited for the opening day. Was really interesting to work with them and discover their view over the outfit that each one of them wanted to wear. Have to say thay being a personal stylist I super enjoyed.

Back to the exhibition, it’s a must see! Will take like an hour and a half if you spend time reading and absorbing as much info as you can, but I guarantee is worth going there.  You can do this until 21 October 2018 and is open daily from 10am  until 6pm and on Friday until 9pm.

This exhibition explores the influence of Michael Jackson on some of the leading names in contemporary art, across few generations of artists and was opened to coincide with what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday ( on 29 August  2018). Michael Jackson: On the wall brings together the work of more than 40artists, pieces from public or private collections around the world, together with some new works created especially for this event.

Has a special importance for me as there is a room about Romania and Michael Jackson’ s concert in 1992. I was just 5 years old at that moment and lived in a communist country until 1990. I was not one of the people that attended the concert, unfortunately. He was the first worldwide magastar that had a concert in Bucharest after Revolution and this was a big thing for Romania. People  from all over the country came to the capital for him. Around 10.000 fans made “23August” stadium ( now National Stadium) to seem  way too small  for this huge event. Videos from that day show people crying of excitement and happiness because they are living that moment. Wish I was there!

Well, hope that I made you curious enough to go an see the exhibition and also the videos from his concert in Bucharest. Here is one of the them

“Ce vrei sa te faci cand vei fi mare?” este intrebarea la care fiecare a trebuit sa dam un raspuns si mai toti ziceam medic, avocat, cantaret.. Sau cel putin asa raspundeau prietenii si colegii mei de gradinita. Nu am auzit pe nimeni care sa vrea sa devina parasutist. Poate si din cauza faptului ca nu stiam noi foarte multe despre asta si nici nu stiam pe cineva care sa practice aceasta activitate.

Chiar daca acum cativa ani mi se parea o chestie misto, acum parasutismul ma fascineaza. Si am in plan un salt in tandem, deocamdata, salt la care visez de muuult timp. Si sunt o norocoasa pentru ca am niste prieteni care sunt ai naibii de buni in ceea ce fac si pentru mine e o super bucurie si “ma dau mare cu asta” :)).

Cu mari emotii (de parca as fi concurat eu) si entuziasm, am fost prezenta duminica la singura competitie de parasutism in oras, “Ordinul Smaranda Braescu”, organizata de cei de la Red BullEvenimentul a fost marcat de aniversarea a 116 ani de la nasterea Smarandei Braescu (21 Mai 1897), figura proeminenta a aeronauticii mondiale, prima femeie parasutist a Romaniei, multipla recordmena nationala si mondiala. Cele mai bune parasutiste din Romania, dar si Austria si Bulgaria au fost prezente in Parcul Izvor din Bucuresti pentru concursul de parasutism, aterizare la punct fix. Saltul era de la 2000 m, iar aterizarea pe un cerc cu diametrul de 2 cm, cat o moneda de 10 bani. Cam dificil, nu?

 Si ca tot vorbeam de prieteni, campionul mondial la precizia aterizarii, Alex Nicolau, a fost cel care a deschis acest concurs si care, alaturi de cei din Echipa de Lucru Relativ pe Cupola, ne-a aratat ca parasutismul inseamna si spectacol.

 In cadrul concursului am putut admira si formatia de parasutism suprapuneri (Echipa Nationala de Lucru Relativ pe Cupola), care a facut un super show in aer.

Fetele au avut rezultate foarte bune. Steliana Popa, a castigat titlul celei de a patra editii Red Bull Ordinul Smaranda. Ea face parte din Lotul National de Parasutism, actuala campioana nationala si apartine Aeroclubului Brasov. Andreea Padurean de la Aeroclubul Bucuresti a ocupat locul 2, iar  Gabriela Balascau s-a clasat pe locul 3.
