Zahiu – Andreea

I am a Romanian artist living and working in Oxford, Uk.  As a foreigner I’ve become more and more aware of the way my identity is shaped by language, culture, geography. Stripping all off, where does my true identity lie?  This question has been the core of my art so far.  I’ve always been looking for a language that could transcend any imagined differences.  It is difficult to talk about my work, difficult because whatever I might say it only casts a veil, not revealing but concealing.  And whatever information I might give on the context of the work, on the materials or the technicalities of the process, it only has a secondary function if any.  To me, art is an alchemical process that goes on and on even when a piece is ‘finished’.  It is meant to be conversational.’
