Marilena Preda Sanc

She has been crossing worlds since the 1980s placing in balance the sensitivities of the inner world with the aggressions of the outside, thus creating a body of work with its own aesthetics linked with an artistic formation developed within the context of the former East-European Block and the specific orientations of the 90s.

The political and artistic leap from the 80s to the 90s has determined the appearance of a conceptual and visual bridge connecting the interests for geological constructions and the personal body as a self-referential method of understanding movement and space with the impulses of confronting social power relationships, breaking and entering its mechanisms.
