Oana Stanciu


The old Leith Theatre


Invited Artist

Oana Stanciu is a visual artist from Romania. Her recent work involves still and moving image in which she uses herself as a model, experimenting with her body and everyday objects to improvise scenes and create unnatural or subtly distorted images.  She likes to play and pretend, and make ordinary things look mesmerising.

Her project will explore ideas of repetition and ritual, focusing on moving image and creating a new video installation for the festival. She is interested in finding new ways for viewers to experience her work, playing with sound and how images are presented in the space.
