Basic Talks: Irina Gheorghe

Irina Gheorghe studied painting and photography at the University of Arts Bucharest but ended up making work whose final form involved being physically present. She is interested in deviation as a way to twist this presence, in ambiguity as a language to address visitors from another world, and vagueness as a method to access this other world while never leaving this one. Irina confounded the artist duo The Bureau of Melodramatic Research to investigate how passions shape contemporary society, as well as our affective relationship to an awe-inspiring unhuman universe. She is also co-founder of artist-run publication Bezna (consistent darkness+ diffuse fear). Her projects were shown in WASP Bucharest, Savvy Contemporary Berlin, Pratt Manhattan Gallery New York, Times
Museum Guangzhou, WING Hong Kong, HOME Manchester, CAC Vilnius, National Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest, bak Utrecht, mumok Vienna, National Dance Center Bucharest, DEPO Istanbul, Ujazdowsky Castle Warsaw, messagesalon Zurich, Center for Visual Introspection Bucharest,
etc.
