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 works with Alina Popa as part of 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 Bezna.
