Romanian born and having completed my studies in Paris, France, i live and work since 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
My work ranges from traditional techniques to installation and performance-art. The mediums and areas converge and complete each other – thus the final projects are elements of the same conundrum, connected through a common conceptual genesis.
Most of my works originate from the investigation of the idea of intimacy – experienced as a semi-fictional construct where the personal mythology overlaps the universal mythology and vice versa, where there is no distinct frontier between the stages of memory-virtuality-reality and the categories of ‘collective’ and ‘personal’, intersect and substitute each other.
Emerging from the necessity of questioning conventional categories and boundaries in the relation art-spectator-artist, the installation/performance pieces are conceived as open (ongoing and accumulative) projects. There is no ‘spactator’ or ‘artist’ in the formal meaning of terms since there is no category of ‘active’ (the artist) or ‘passive’ (the spactator’) and the static object in between to be contemplated : the art. The adventure to be called ‘art’ is the spontaneous and unrepeatable phenomenon that is happening there and then between the players of the open platform.
A painting project starts with abundant word plays where mysterious characters – half real-half made-up arise through humorous imagery and shape into a brand new population of motley heavy flavored sensations. Technically, the process consists of collage experiments, explorations with various objects and research for new, refined textures. The tangled ‘storyline’ revolves around feminine characters, vague self-portraits, quintessential pixies standing for a lustful energy of rivaling any form of compliance or submission. Around, on top and inside the air that heroines are breathing circulate creatures, signs, symbols, words, quotes – mouthfuls of seeming souvenirs and splinters of a noise doped day-to-day existence.
