Marilena Preda-Sânc

Born in 1955 in Bucharest, Romania / Lives and works in Bucharest

"I consider myself a painter of fixed and running images, an interdisciplinary artist, who creates drawing, painting, object, photography, artist book, installation, video, performance.

Integrating the traditional forms of art and the new media arts my art work investigates and visualizes the body/mind/soul/behaviors in relation to nature and social/political/representational space and the feminism problematic as gender/ageism/the woman as leader in an eco-feminism key.

Our wandering through our domestic worlds, as well as our immersion into the social/political space, our new relations with the virtual environment, reshape our daily life. Often we forget about the others, about nature, we forget to be a spiritual human being. We have to learn to be able to understand the 'concept of neighborhood' as a 'living need'.

I believe that the human being and the quality of life will be enriched once the self/geo/political consciousness will be fully integrated into an ecological mind of a new identity of a Man reborn into an ethical space of 'poiesis'.” / Marilena Preda-Sânc
