Marina Oprea

Marina Oprea is a young artist living and working in Bucharest. She graduated The National University of Fine Arts in Bucharest, with a background in photography and video art. Her work investigates identity and choice, working with very specific objects and tools. By creating situations and breaking the passivity of the spectator, she wants the viewer to immerse himself in the piece along with the artist. Using photography, performance, video, and ready-made objects, she documents and questions personal and social issues. In between projects she makes translations and collaborates with various national and international artistic publications.

Perspectivism – The elusive White Horse

Hate is a very loose and general term, a feeling so familiar yet so unassumed. We hate to hate, we’d hate to be characterized as hateful, yet this is exactly what we are, and that’s OK.
