Exhibition & Residency:
June 1 – July 31, 2012
Romanian artist Cristina David started her artistic training at the Art Academy in Bucharest, Romania and completed her MDA at the Art Academy in Bergen, Norway. She also studied at the Faculty of Mathematics in Bucharest. Video is her primary medium, but she also works with photography and installations. Her often humorous texts and images are related and the majority of her work is story-based.
The stories come from day-to-day life. In her texts, she blends her personal experiences and thoughts. Ms. David has said that her stories often emerge from her impatience at the slow motion of daily life. She likes to work with narrative and enjoys seeing reality through tales. When her mind feels that there are gaps in the real world, she tries to fill them with stories. Ms. David is in residence at 18th Street with the support of the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
