Installation with objects (toilet table zone, tea table zone and laundry basket). All objects are part of the 3D HOTEL project
I was born in Bucharest, Romania in 1994. I obtained an MA Painting degree at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. Before turning 23, I was awarded with two scholarships abroad: at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera Milano and at HEAR Strasbourg-Mulhouse (Haute école des arts du Rhin), in France. I have exposed works in over 30 places in Romania, Germany, the United States, Spain and Italy. So far, I had seven solo exhibition, and soon, on 18th of June it will be the opening of the 9th.
I am an art addict. I am young. I am vibrant. I want to understand who I am. Who the others are. What life is all about. Painting, I find myself. Painting, I explore myself. Painting, I capture the essence of the others. Like I imagine a blind person slowly discovering other humans, I discover the world by painting and in sculptures. I paint. Full stop. I am a visionary. Through my nature I love living, exploring life and then give life by coloring canvases, walls, plaster, and everything else stays in front of me. I am strong, I know this.
I take my inspiration from personal emotions, and then build an entire world surrounding that emotion. It is always a challenge for me to refer to contrasting subjects, such as daily routine and poetry. The way I am trying to express different subjects is by creating an atmosphere and proposing painting at its limit of becoming an installation. This way, the canvas becomes the place of the exhibit and the force lines of the composition are going to be distances from the main zones installed in the space. For this, I am usually working with plaster, cement, plastic, paper, metal, canvas, acrylic paint and light.
The main project that I’m working at is 3D HOTEL. Instead of admiring art from a safe distance, with 3D HOTEL visitors can immerse themselves in the artwork and experience it with all their senses.
A hotel room, with pieces of furniture on which art objects are placed, is the best host for my project. Each time it is exposed, it takes another form, according to the new space. The visitors are invited to investigate the ‘crime scene’, flip through files with evidence, and try to understand who the main character was, and what happened to her. All around, they can see pieces of evidence of the clothes she wore and the prints that she left in the room. The glass that she drank from, the book next to her bed, the dress that she wore, covered with cement. Even the ceiling carries her personality, and it seems like in her short stay at the hotel, the impersonal room transformed, and became a mirrored image of the investigated character. The room contains incomplete pieces of evidence.
